Data Center Migration

Definition - What does Data Center Migration mean?

A data center migration is the process of deploying and transferring an existing data center environment to another data center operating environment. It is a comprehensive process that systematically plans for migrating the existing data center to a new facility or site.

A data center migration is also known as a data center relocation.

Techopedia explains Data Center Migration

A data center migration is the logical and operational migration of a data center, then physically moving the data center to a new site. However, in the case of end users, data center migration refers to adopting cloud or managed data center platforms in favor of in-house or standard data center facilities.

Before a successful data center migration can occur, the following must be ensured:

  • The new facility meets or exceeds expected future data center requirements.
  • It is compatible with current applications and solutions.
  • Migration testing must ensure migration is successful.
  • Relocating and managing staff’s schedule and workflow to ensure minimal impact to current business operations.
