Connection’s Data Center Migration and Consolidation Services
SiteOrganizational changes, increased business demands, and infrastructure upgrades have a big impact on your data center. Connection is here to ensure your data center supports your strategic needs. We can manage the complexities of a physical move with a data center migration, work with you to develop the infrastructure needed for cloud repatriation, or support streamlining of operations with data center consolidation.
DataConnection knows how crucial your data is to your organization. The same needs for security and performance that can drive data migration projects can cause concerns about undertaking those projects. Connection’s methodology is focused on getting data moved safely while maintaining user permissions and availability. Whether you’re looking to move a cloud or non-cloud block to files or off of a legacy or unsupported platform, we will get your data to the desired end state uncorrupted, ready to use, and with the right user authorizations.
WorkloadsIf you’re running on an end of support (EOS) or end of life (EOL) operating system, you’re opening your organization to security and compliance risks. Connection can help you move workloads from one physical environment to another or convert workloads to different formats with confidence. Beyond this, we can help with virtual machine migration or workload conversion, including physical-to-virtual server migrations or movement between virtual environments, such as Hyper-V, Acropolis, and VMware vSphere. Our systematic approach begins with a detailed assessment report that determines the appropriate upgrade or migration process for each application in use so you have a full understanding of your environment. We will provide thorough documentation, including migration, rollback, and validation plans. Finally, we will work with you to understand critical dependencies that exist across your IT infrastructure to minimize any potential disruption to end users.
