The Only Three Reasons for Data Center Migration

Our friends at Logicalis US shared these insights with us:

CIOs often describe their data centers as having grown organically into a “Frankenstein-like operation,” through years of cycling people, hardware and software in and out of IT.

Often, they attempt to migrate, only adding more layers of complexity.

There are only three reasons to undertake a data center migration: guaranteed cost reduction, the assurance of creating a more streamlined and easily manageable operation, or the creation of a more reliable data center overall. 

Successfully achieving such a migration requires financial due diligence that carefully examines costs and benefits, completing a strategic data center assessment, and working in bite-sized chunks, rather than attempting an entire lift and shift.
