Physical hardware relocation

A hardware relocation involves physically moving your current data centre infrastructure to a new location, either to a different server room within the current building or to a completely new data centre.

At this initial stage, you will need to evaluate the potential new environment by looking at the new facility and the footprint size available, ventilation and power load capabilities for each rack.

You will also need to consider what cabling and ISP infrastructure may be required. Its also advisable to coordinate an entire environment shutdown process, and to consider a thorough testing plan after the physical migration.

Careful planning of a data centre relocation or server migration will reduce the risk of hardware failures and issues due to incorrect patching.
