Data Center Relocations… Where to Start

Organizations embark on data center relocations, migrations and consolidations for different reasons and urgency. Some examples include:

  • Your current data center can no longer support your need for growth in terms of space, power, or cooling
  • Organizational restructuring such as a mergers or acquisition has created the need to consolidate data centers
  • An older data center design has too many single points of failure and the risk of outages is too high for current business needs

For most IT organizations, facility level transitions typically occur only once or twice a decade.  With a project of this magnitude, and potential for business disruption, it’s natural to have a lot of questions.  Click on the questions below to learn more about the overall process.
