What is a data center migration?

Moving or consolidating data center infrastructure is always challenging. Data center migrations require end-to-end solutions covering analysis, risk assessment, planning, design, execution and testing to ensure your data center move takes place in time and within budget, with no risk to your data center. When you take it on in-house, resources and skills tend to be scarce and budgets and timeframes have been known to overrun. This is why Iron Mountain Data Centers offers a stress-free migration solution.

To make sure there are no misunderstandings, you work with a clear work statement and methodology and have a single point of contact for data center support.

Migration requires in depth coordination, and our team includes project managers, structured cabling personnel, specialized movers and network and systems engineers to help your staff get routers, SANs, and servers back on-line. We work with specialized partners who know their business inside-out.


Our dedicated team will provide all the knowhow needed, whatever the task - data center operations, network planning, current state analysis, rack and electrical load design, logistics planning and execution, and data and equipment testing.

We take you through every step that is required to make your migration a success, from building the business case to agreeing and implementing testing procedures prior to the final cutover. As a digital business, your data and online processes are too valuable to risk.

Data center installation & builds

How are data center builds and installs done?

Across all our global markets, we are experts in site selection, design and construction, government and regulator liaison and power and network connectivity strategy.

Customer requirements vary and so do our data center solutions. Colocation customers often want a standard product offering in an existing facility for cost-efficiency and speed. Larger customers often have specific engineering requirements, and are keen to be actively involved in the design process. We are always ready to consult, and we build for a known cost and to a uniform timeline.

Sustainable data center design and installation are non-negotiable as we believe that environmental benefits are a by-product of a rigorous business, build and operation strategy.

Our approach to sustainability extends way beyond renewables. We use the latest techniques and engineering infrastructure to provide efficient power and cooling to our data halls. We consider the recyclable content of materials, minimizing waste to landfill and often recycling waste heat.

Installations are the next step in this process. We partner with our customers to ensure they are deploying the most efficient server technology, where one rack can replace six older versions. We are always on hand to advise on hardware and operational efficiencies.

Let us help you get your infrastructure and data center equipment in place faster.
