Infrastructure services: migration


There are so many diverse components involved that it’s often a question of when, not if something will go wrong. Unplanned financial, time and physical risks can delay or even scuttle a move overnight. Our experienced data center migration professionals, with an average of 25 years of experience each, are well-equipped to help you get it done, on time and within budget.

“Data centre migration projects are costly, risky and increasingly complex as virtualisation plays an ever greater role in today's workloads, with the career-ending potential for enterprise IT staff lacking the experience, knowledge and tools to plan and execute a successful data centre move.”
