Over the past year we’ve seen many businesses moving premises to either scale down their operations or to expand them. Whatever the case maybe, one of the key factors is to minimise “down-time” for the business, so preparation and migration should be of upmost importance. Consider outsourcing to a specialist. Trying to save a little money can be very costly as one business experienced recently and contacted us for assistance.

They decided they would move the server that was business critical themselves to save money. Unfortunately removing the server from the rack wasn’t as easy as they thought and they ended up dropping it [see image below]. The server was collected and bought to our workshop where we managed to rebuild it. Fortunately we were able to recover the data from the original disks on this occasion.

What should have been a quick move over the weekend turned into additional unexpected downtime for the business.

If you’re thinking of or planning an office move please contact one of our team who will be happy to assist you through the process.
