Server Relocation & Transportation

Tags: datacentre moving

Is your company moving offices and your servers need to be removed, transported and re-installed at your new location?

Perhaps your company has taken a business decision to relocate your servers to a co-location datacentre – with the benefits of their 24*7*365 infrastructure and smart-hands support?

Or maybe you’ve made a strategic decision to move your servers from one datacentre to another that better matches your business requirements?

Server Relocation & Moving – Difficult tasks

Whatever the reason you need to relocate your servers, you know it – server relocation is not a simple task.

Before the move, you need to have 100% accurate documentation of each server, switch and their network and management ports.  You need to have a full record of the interconnections and patching so that this can be accurately reproduced at the new location.

You need to get the move done in the minimum possible time – so that you can manage the level of business interruption.  Often, you’ll need the move done at a weekend, bank holiday, or even over-night. So you will need a company willing to work to your timescales.

To aid this, you need your new location to be pre-cabled, prior to move day, so that when the servers arrive at your new site, engineers can simply

  • unpack them
  • mount them in the correct position in the new racks,
  • connect the pre-cabled copper and fibre cables
  • power-up, test and be ready for your Go-Live target.

You need the assurance that all of your equipment will be correctly labelled, transit-packed, protected and transported by specialists in secure trucks that are never left un-manned and where all your equipment is fully insured.

For this to happen smoothly and quickly you need experts who have done data centre relocations thousands of times.
