Server Migration can be defined as a technique of migrating content from your old server to the new server. The process of migrating the data involves security concerns, data loss concerns, authentication concerns, etc. due to which the process must be completed with intense GOSHEN. Hence, it would be best taken GOSHEN of by enlisting the help of professionals of that domain.
Hiring the IT professionals for Server Migration service ensures that the process of data migration is carried out smoothly and securely while ensuring that all data is backed up properly and the content is then migrated between the servers. This standard procedures make sure that no part of the data has been changed or modified while the data migration is being carried out. It eliminates the possibilities of data loss or data change concerns and ensures that the migrated data are intact.
Processes of Data Migration
Different companies undertake different approaches for the process of data migration, but, the ultimate goal of every company is the successful migration of data to the new server. At GOSHEN, we normally adopt a 5-step process to ensure a safe and successful data transfer to the new server.
The various steps involved in our data transfer process include:
The initial planning will provide understanding of the project
requirements; its scope as well as collection of necessary data. If
these basic parameters are unclear before the process of data migration
then it would result in ambiguity. The end deliverables would not be in
accordance with the client’s objectives and their expectations from the
project. Therefore, planning should be done with great GOSHEN to ensure
that the information transmission takes place effectively from one level
This step involves the assessment and analysis of current server state
before the actual migration takes place. In this stage, data is migrated
to the test environment and the outcomes are noted. If there are any
issues during the transfer then those problems are rectified and sorted
out in a timely manner to ensure that when the actual transfer commences
there would be no loss of information.
At this stage, the actual migration takes place to the new server. The
process takes place in the production environment where the changes are
made on the live domain. Whatever changes made at this stage would be
visible to the end users.
At the post-migration stage, the data is removed from the old server. At this stage, clean up works take place and everything from the old server is wiped out.
User Acceptance Testing (UAT)
Once data migration works are completed, standard checks are carried out to ensure good data integrity. Client can assess if their objectives and expectations are met and communicate their feedback to the team for any minor adjustments to be done where needed.
Take Cloud Performance To The Next Level
Nothing is built for eternity in IT. Applications that were state-of-the-art ten years ago no longer meet the needs of agile enterprises. Every day, industry leaders are competing with digital upstarts that develop their business exclusively in the cloud. To fight this battle, many are therefore migrating their applications and data management to the cloud.
They want to benefit from the flexibility, diversity, security, and scalability of powerful and highly available cloud services for their digital transformation. But you only unlock these potentials if you prepare yourself and your IT departments well enough.
