Here at Aggie Technologies NC, LLC, we want to help you do what’s best for your business, and we offer a wide range of IT services to help you keep up with all your technology needs. One of the services we offer is server migration, in which our experts will help you transfer your company’s data from one server to another. In this article, we’ll go over some essential information that you need to know about this process.
What is server migration and what is it for?
As we mentioned above, server migration is the process of moving data from one server to another. There are many reasons to do this, such as making your information more secure after the original server was compromised, transferring your data to a more modern server to ensure that you don’t lose that information should the old server fail, and more.
Can I handle server migration in-house?
If your company’s IT team has enough experience and resources, they may be able to handle the process of server migration themselves. However, smaller businesses or teams without dedicated IT staff should outsource this service to experts like ourselves for best results.
How does server migration work?
The process of server migration varies from server to server, but it usually looks more or less like this: first, you need to identify your needs, then find a server that fulfills those needs. Then your IT team will make a plan to transfer the data, anticipating as many roadblocks as possible and building in workarounds. Next is the actual transfer, and finally mapping your process to the new server’s IP address.
