IT infrastructure migration – How it’s done

Moving sensitive IT infrastructure around can be an arduous task at the best of times, even when simply moving servers around in the same building. The task becomes all the more complex when moving hardware between facilities – across countries or even continents.

Migration is something that either goes well, or goes horribly wrong. Moving critical equipment can cause irreparable damage to systems, either through physical damage to hardware from incorrect movement, or damage to data through static and magnetic fields – both can be deadly.

To ensure your move goes as planned, you will need a technical migration partner who can plan the entire move from start to finish. Netwise Hosting have a number of national and global IT infrastructure migration partners who can assist clients at highly competitive rates. Our partners in this field are the best in the business, with specialist equipment designed to make moving critical hardware trouble-free.

Anti-static packaging, impact resistant flight cases, smooth air suspension on all fleet vehicles and expertly trained personnel all contribute towards a fail-safe service that will ensure your systems are moved quickly and efficiently from A to B, ready for re-service as soon as possible.
