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.
