Data Centre Migration
Data centre migration (or relocation) is the process of moving an existing data centre environment to another data centre environment. It also includes moving to a cloud or managed data centre platform from in-house facilities. Relocating data centres need to be planned carefully to ensure a proper and smooth transition.
Before a successful data centre migration can occur, the following must be ensured:
- The new facility meets or exceeds expected future data centre requirements.
- It is compatible with current applications and solutions.
- Migration testing must ensure migration is successful.
- Relocating and managing staff’s schedule and workflow to ensure minimal impact to current business operations.
