Data center move planning is a long process. It will take up the vast majority of your project’s effort and schedule, as it should.
On top of the logistics to solve, every data center migration must navigate the organization’s business processes and politics.
When you start actually moving your data center—packing servers into crates and loading them onto trucks—you want to encounter as few surprises as possible. That’s only possible by taking the time upfront to plan.
And remember, we’re always available to help.
Given the complexity of relocating your data center and the stakes involved, it makes sense to engage the help of a professional data center relocation firm to handle your high-value assets and sensitive data. Each data center migration project is unique. However, they all share many of the same driving forces. Do any of these forces below sound familiar to your organization?
- Operational excellence: Organizations are looking for lower cost, or better cost efficiency, in their data center operations. This can come from lower energy costs, equipment modernization and consolidation, and virtualizing servers.
- Mergers and acquisitions: According to the Institute of Mergers, Acquisitions and Alliances, mergers and acquisitions in North America topped $2 trillion and 18,000+ transactions in 2017. In today’s digital economy, all those deals likely included consolidating and migrating data centers.
- Changing technology strategies: Organizations riding the seemingly endless digital transformations such as Big Data and cloud computing need to migrate their data center operations to capitalize on the competitive advantages offered by developments such as hyperscale data centers, software-as-a-service business models, and the Internet of Things.
- Security and compliance: Repeated security and privacy breaches of corporate, consumer, and election data are fueling the demand for greater security. Organizations that fall out of compliance risk losing their customers, funding, or even license to operate. Regulated organizations are moving their data centers to facilities that are better designed to support increased security and privacy.
