Moving your Technology
  • Site Audit
    • A full site audit will be done on the environment; this will document exactly what needs to be moved and what applications are running in the environment. Included in this will be:
      • Hardware specification
      • Virtualization setup
      • Backup history
      • Rack space
      • Network layout
      • Applications running in the environment
      • Storage setup
  • Planning the move
    • We will design a moving plan to put your mind at ease. This plan will include how the move will be done, time of the move and what will be included in the move. Planning is done to ensure a successful move and to optimize uptime.
  • The move
    • Equipment will shut down by us to ensure clean shutdowns of the equipment.
    • The equipment will be loaded onto a truck after being bubble wrapped and padded, we can arrange for armed guards during the transport to ensure everything goes as planned. Insurance will also be offered for the equipment.
    • Once we arrive at the new location we will offload everything and start powering the equipment up in the correct order to make sure everything is up and running in the most effective and quickest way.
  • Arriving at your new premises.
    • Once everything has been plugged in and turned on, we will ensure that all your systems and IT equipment is running as it should be and business can carry on as normal.
    • We can provide services to change IP addresses to a new range for the new site
    • We can do backup restores if this is required
    • Offer physical to virtual migrations to minimize the use of physical servers, this can be done using Hyper-V or VMware depending on licencing or preference.
    • We can provide any new Domain controller / File servers / application server / exchange server builds required at the new site.
    • Cabling will be cleaned up and patching will be done in best practise. This will ensure Power and network is redundant and has High availability.
