Accelerating your data center migration

Migrations can quickly overwhelm IT teams. The process can be long and difficult, and additional staffing or training may be required. Often, unknown dependencies and technical incompatibilities are revealed — leading to delays and downtime that hurt your bottom line.

Insight’s migration services help you safely and securely move workloads with minimal disruption to your core business functions. We mitigate the risk of data corruption by deploying best practices, such as application dependency mapping, to ensure successful workload and application transfers.

Our services-led approach helps you ensure:

  • Platform strategies are optimized per business needs and objectives.
  • Comprehensive discovery and planning is conducted for a seamless transition without technical debt.
  • Stagnant data, abandoned applications and discrepancies are identified and addressed.
  • Availability, scalability, security and efficiency targets are met throughout move events.
  • End states are set for success with proper management and governance.

Our approach to data center migration

We focus on your people, processes and technology to establish an effective plan that ensures smooth implementation. Explore our process:

Strategy and discovery

We learn your objectives and processes, then conduct interviews to detail the scope, schedule, budget, constraints and history of your migration. We also complete a dependency analysis and take inventory of your IT environment.

Analysis and deployment

Our team analyzes your applications to create a migration schedule that meets your budget, outage windows, bandwidth and risk tolerance. Then, we’ll deploy the right platforms to match your needs and align each workload with its best-fit platform.

Remediation and migration

We upgrade your systems to optimal version levels and handle existing data to ensure your workloads will be functional as soon as they’re online. Then, after extensive reliability testing, we begin migrating applications and data to your new location.
