Server Migration

Server Migration: Does Your Business Need It? 

A server migration is the process of moving large amounts of critical information from one server to another. This also involves making sure the new server is properly configured to host the new information and securely store data.  

1.End of Life (EOL) or End of Support (EOS) 

Operating systems have set dates for when official support will end. This means that vulnerability patches and bug fixes ends. Every piece of software one day will reach an End of Life (EOL) or End of Support (EOS) date. When this happens, there is a substantial security risk. 

2. Scalability Requirements 

As business grows, it is important to get the correct infrastructure to support a booming business. Increased workloads, users, and data will require a server that can efficiently handle the increasing demands. 

3. Compliance Requirements 

As regulations and compliance standards evolve, you may need to migrate servers to ensure that the IT infrastructure aligns with new legal requirements.  

4. Virtualization 

Migrating servers to virtualized environment or cloud platforms can offer flexibility, scalability, and cost savings compared to traditional on-premise solutions. This could be a good option for certain businesses, requiring a migration project to optimize.  

5. Data Center Consolidation 

Organizations may choose to consolidate multiple data centers to reduce operational costs, enhance efficiency, and streamline management. This makes facilities/equipment more efficient by using fewer resources for the same technology goal. A large part of this process is server migration.  

Be careful that an expert handles a server migration. If not, substantial data loss is possible.  How do you know if a server migration is a project you need? Contact us for a free assessment, today.
