Important Steps for Data Center Migration
We are proud to have teams on both the East Coast and West Coast of the United States ready to move the data centers and engineering laboratories of our clients. Our customers trust us to handle all of the following vital relocation steps.
We document all details, settings, and connections, even if documentation already exists. This allows our team to take responsibility for reassembly and correct operation at the new location.
It is imperative that inventory is accurately recorded during disassembly. As part of the inventory process, each unit and component must be properly staged and labeled. Through mindful grouping of both connectors and peripherals, clients can save time and money.
We ensure the right packaging to safely move each unit. Packaging must be performed in accordance with manufacturer specifications to maintain warranties. Our team will even handle the logistics of your data center relocation and schedule trucks for your move.
Accurate reassembly of the potentially hundreds or thousands of switches, servers, and racks requires a sophisticated approach. This includes everything from physically fitting equipment in its proper place to optimizing your network cabling. Each component is then tested that it is operational.
After your move is completed, it is crucial you confirm all interconnectivity is correct and integration has not been compromised during the process. With so much to do and so many important steps, a data center migration is not something you leave to amateurs. Some of the world’s top technology firms trust datanet IT to accomplish their data center migrations securely and efficiently.

A structured migration plan and experienced technicians can save your company thousands of dollars in lost time or data.
It is important your data center moving partner identifies risks up front and has a contingency plan for every aspect of your move. Always confirm that secure backups and data archives are in place before beginning your lab relocation.
