Getting your data centre relocated or any kind of business relocation can involve a lot of stress and quite a lot of money. The relocation itself needs to happen because you have decided that a better location is more strategically advantageous due to its location and its proximity to your customer base. Customers are now using their devices more than ever and so something has to be put in place to be able to deal with the increase in demand and the fast move towards virtualisation. It’s likely that your data centre needs a lot more room to meet the demands and it may be that you are considering moving all of your operations to the cloud anyway.
There are many challenges ahead of you like planning for the relocation, the whole complexity of it all and of course the Server delivery and installation. It is likely that you do have your own in-house IT team but they just don’t have the experience and the know-how to be able to do something such as this. This is why you always need to reach out to an external service provider that can provide you with all of the services that you need with regards to your data centre relocation. By using the services you get to enjoy the following advantages.
- Better performance – Obviously your move is going to involve the disconnection and the reconnection of all of your data centre needs and so it is always best to use a professional company that knows exactly what it’s doing and can do everything for you from start to finish. This helps to make the whole move a lot easier to handle and it will certainly reduce your stress and anxiety levels.
- The logistics of it all – Transporting IT equipment is not easy and straightforward and you just can’t load certain pieces of equipment into the back of the company van and take it to its new location. Some of this IT equipment is incredibly sensitive and so you need to be using a service provider that has specially equipped transport that can keep equipment cool until it reaches its final destination.
- Years of experience & knowledge – This is not their first data centre relocation and it certainly will not be their last. These professional service providers have been doing this kind of thing from many years now and they have an incredible amount of knowledge behind them that can deal with any issue that might occur along the way. The really is no problem that they have encountered you that they couldn’t find a solution for.
There are just some things that you have to accept that you’re not able to do yourself properly and so this is why these service providers exist in the first place. You have a lot more to worry about including the core of your business and so leaving the relocation of your data centre to the professionals makes a lot more business sense. It allows you to concentrate on other things so that your business is ready to hit the ground running when you decide to open up.
