Furthermore, you can take this time to inventory your hardware and decide if anything needs updating. This helps us save time and materials when packing your data center and saves you money by avoiding moving unnecessary items.
Discuss Your Goals
When planning your move, we review your goals and answer your questions about the process. This may include the following elements of your relocation:
- Critical applications and data and what needs to be backed up
- Your data’s security during the relocation
- How your equipment will fit in your new space
We strive to understand your business and objectives, so we can always keep them in mind and set up your new space to your satisfaction. Our team ensures everything fits into your new space for minimal setup delay and optimal productivity.
