Why do I need to Migrate or Consolidate my Data Centre/s

As your business evolves, your IT needs will change and this will inevitably impact on your data centre requirements. Either consolidating data centre assets or Migrating IT equipment to a new in-house data centre facility or colocation provider may be considered necessary to increase capacity or decrease costs.

We have successfully managed vital transformation for over 55 data centres and have a full and thorough understanding of the planning, change management process and physical challenges involved in the migration and consolidation of mission critical IT asserts.

Methodology

All migration or consolidation project begin with a thorough understanding of corporate drivers, requirements and constraints. Meetings with key stakeholders are held to determine corporate objectives and then objectives are assessed to determine whether they can be met without migration/consolidation by retrieval of ‘lost’ capacity in an existing facility for example; our in house consultants design a bespoke solution to meet individual corporate requirements. Planning is key to success and all devices, facility infrastructure and other elements will be documented, assessed for any issues identified and dealt with prior to the move.
