Server Relocation

From a single server to an entire data centre, we carry out moves for clients of all sizes.

When migrating server environments it is crucial that certain steps are taken to ensure safe transportation of equipment and guarantee minimal down time for our customers and their network.

Relocating a server environment is a complex and challenge task, but our team of experienced specialist server engineers ensure your business critical equipment is in safe hands at all times. Projects of this nature require extensive planning and risk analysis, and we work in parallel with internal IT teams to provide consultancy and advice on how to deliver a successful relocation. We can also design and present a rack diagram detailing the proposed layout, if required.

We use specialist equipment when relocating server environments. Physical devices are transported in server foam lined flight cases and if required, we can use server lifts to remove any heavy equipment. All requirements will always be noted prior to the move. We also have a labelling system for all equipment, server rails and fixings, and all labels will correspond with the correct device and screw bags.

All vehicles used for this type of project are air suppressed and GPS tracked.

Our process:

A full audit and risk analysis is carried out
All equipment is labelled
Power is switched off and all cabling is safely removed
Equipment is removed from racks and loaded in flight cases
Rails and fixings are removed, labelled and packed
All equipment is transported securely in the vehicle
Equipment is unpacked and re-racked in correspondence with the rack diagram
All cabling is re-patched
All equipment is transported securely in the vehicle
