Data Center Migrations
Some things are just too important to mess up. A data center migration is one of them.
No detail is too small. When the stakes are high, call Deft.
Your IT team doesn’t perform dozens of data center migrations a year — nor should they. It’s not their job. Fortunately, it is ours.
Our migration specialists are old pros. Every aspect of the move is planned down to the smallest detail, such as:
- Measuring every door/hall/elevator opening width
- Labeling every single device on the front and back (some servers have nifty LCD screens, but those screens are off during a migration)
We’ve performed hundreds of migrations over the past few decades. Each one taught us something new. When the unexpected comes up (and it will), we’ll handle it without skipping a beat.
Here’s how our data center migrations work in 7 proven steps.
“There were a lot of moving pieces — everything had to fall in place almost perfectly for us to pull this off. With Deft’s expertise, responsiveness, and flexibility, we were able to complete the server migration on time and on budget.”
“With the volume of data we manage, a migration was not going to be a trivial effort. Deft was able to make a compelling case to move our primary hosting to take advantage of their network, expertise, and support, rather than purchasing a point-to-point product from a traditional carrier and paying for cross-connects on each side. This is a technical point, but it was a critical component that set the stage for the larger migration.”
“The Deft team worked with us and took our needs to heart as though they were part of our company. They proactively created a rack diagram and performed our entire installation without a hiccup. The team at Deft has also saved us a lot of time by providing the required network and power cabling for us. We’ve been pleasantly surprised by how quickly and efficiently Deft staff addresses our requests and concerns.”
“When we moved from our other data center with another vendor, we realized late how many moving parts (literally and figuratively) were involved. My staff powered down at the old location on a Friday night and asked Deft to manage the physical part of the move. It took them less than six hours to relocate all of our equipment and reconnect us. On a Friday night.”
