Data Center (DC) relocation service is a professional project service with systematic approach offered by Alphamatic Systems.
We mitigate risk with a focus on the detailed planning and begin with an assessment to identify existing asset and its connectivity and positioning, as well as functionality and compatibility; create an inventory of data, applications and IT equipment for migration; develop possible migration approaches; and develop a top level expense estimate and skill and resource requirements.
Most company would have tasked a logistics company or movers to help relocate their office. However, these logistics company are not IT trained, and will not be able to advise or relocate your critical IT equipment in the Data Center (DC) or Server Room safely and smoothly.
There are so many factors to consider when moving from one DC to another, such as:
- Are internet lines going to be ready?
- Is there network cabling and how many is sufficient?
- Is the rack at new DC has sufficient space?
- Are there sufficient electrical sockets?
- Do we need to update the DNS?
- What about the MX records for email server?
- Do I need to do a power cycle before relocation?
- How do I dismantle and assemble the hardware if it is too bulky to move?
- Is there sufficient labeling or tagging?
We can help take the stress away from you as we handle all of the critical IT parts of your office move and minimize any unforeseen relocation related problems. We can even draw up a DC relocation project plan as well.
During any DC or Server Room relocation we ensure that at the end your systems are online, your staff can work and your business can continue to trade.
Below is our standard process flows in the relocation
We will perform a site survey and inspection of the customer's new location, making recommendations regarding requirements for electrical power conditions, power conversions, air conditioning, room layout, security, equipment delivery path and other key environmental factors.
We will re-affirm the customer, prior to the equipment move, has properly implemented any required actions. Inspection of the destination site is carried out even if the equipment is being delivered to a storage area, so that the equipment can be safely moved and stored for future use.
