What is a Migration?

Like birds headed for greener pastures during winter, we move your precious data from old servers to it’s new home. We start by copying all of the moving parts from your old hosting setup to a new host, while paying close attention to detail so the cogs that keep your company running continue to spin. Once everything is tested and running smoothly on the new host, we open the doors for business to your customers.

Whats Involved?

The migration process will start with an in depth conversation with a real human being about your particular project. We want to get to know you and your systems before we start doing business, and will discuss the urgency, importance, and details of your particular migration before we begin. Some configurations are complicated and will require a specialist from our team to do a “deep dive” analysis to ensure that your business keeps moving forward throughout the process.

How does the migration work?

  • 01

    Analysis

    We review every avenue and corner of your current configuration and build a solid migration plan around your specific needs. We’ll then review the plan with you to give you a better understanding of what’s going on with your data throughout the various steps of this process. As soon as you agree on next-steps, our “worker bees” will begin implementing the migration process.

  • 02

    Snapshot

    The most important step in this process is to take a complete “snapshot” of everything in your existing environment. That snapshot is then used to start establishing your presence with your new host. Don’t worry; the gears that keep your business running on the web will keep moving throughout this process without interruption, and our virtual stopwatch will keep track of everything that changes during this time.

    Review

    After working out the important details of your move, we'll hand you the keys to your new space, allowing you to stage as many walk-throughs as necessary to ensure everything is up to par. The goal here is to make your move seamless – as if we were never there.

    The final step allows access to your customers and clients. From a technical standpoint, that means swapping IP addresses, updating DNS, and/or changing application settings.

We have all kinds of moves

  • Server Migrations

    Complete server migrations where imaging is not an option and the existing infrastructure must run in parallel with the new require that all applications, data, and configuration be properly identified. After careful analysis, our engineers will build a comprehensive migration plan and coordinating all of the details with the customer and their technical team.

  • Website Migrations

    Starter applications and websites are typically hosted in a shared environment. As the application grows or customers find that their current hosting solution doesn't meet their business needs, a migration to either another shared hosting provider or dedicated is the first challenge that they face.

  • Control Panel

    Hosted servers administered by specialized control panel software such as cPanel or Plesk require special attention be given to insure not only all of the websites and applications hosted on the server are properly transitioned, but also the meta data used to allow the control panel to properly manage the services.

  • Virtualization & Cloud

    Migrating infrastructure that is already or is becoming virtualized involves an in-depth understanding of the underlying hypervisor platform. Virtual machine images are transferred natively to insure the most compatibility during the migration. These types of migrations typically prevent the need to reinstall any software within the virtual machines, but can be combined with other migration techniques to provide the most up-to-date data integrity.
