Relocating your data center from one site to another is never going to be easy. With so many different working parts, and so many different variables to consider, relocating can in some cases create more logistical headaches than building the data center in the first place. First, you need to disassemble your data center at the existing site, then pack it up for shipment, transport it, and reassemble it at the new site, while replicating the original configuration. To make things even more complicated, you have to do all of this without causing any damage to the infrastructure.
That’s why you should always work with a team of experienced professionals to manage your data center relocation.

Dedicated pre-move Services to Ensure That All Your Equipment Is Ready for Shipping
Your data center relocation doesn’t begin when the trucks first start pulling away. There are many things you can do to ensure the success of the data center relocation that take place before the move even starts, and the MCIS relocation management team can help you make sure that you take all of these pre-move steps.

One Project Management Team to Coordinate and Oversee the Entire Relocation Process
A data center is a complex thing; in many cases, it is designed, built, and managed by a variety of different stakeholders, including both internal teams and third-party organizations. In order to account for this complexity and ensure effective communication throughout the relocation process, MCIS can provide a single relocation management team to oversee the entire process.
If necessary, we’ll facilitate communication between different stakeholder organizations, ensuring that everyone is on the same page about what needs to happen during the relocation. We’ll also manage scheduling and logistics, in order to make sure that everyone is clear about exactly what is going to be moved, and when.
