COLOTRAQ Introduces Data Center Migration Service

August 01, 2017

Advisory firm and master agency COLOTRAQ has launched a Data Center Migration service for its agent partners and customers.

“Our experience has been that data center migrations are the single most critical move a company can make and remain the primary reason many companies don’t take advantage of the growing number of newer, more efficient data centers in the marketplace,” said COLOTRAQ CEO and founder Dany Bouchedid. “Our goal is to mitigate the risk and reduce the resource strain a data center move can place on an organization.”

The new Data Center Migration service features:

  • assessment of infrastructure design and system requirements;
  • creation of a high-level migration strategy;
  • decomposition – applications and services analysis;
  • detailed planning and requirement work;
  • execution management and implementation;
  • initiation and data gathering, and
  • turnover to operations.

“From developing hour-by-hour migration scripts to consolidating and sequencing all migration cutovers to post-move summarization event reports, COLOTRAQ covers every aspect of the migration,” the company explained in a press release.

COLOTRAQ, which has been in business since 1999, offers cloud, colocation, managed hosting, and related network services. It has relationships with more than 400 service providers in more than 1,300 cities across 140 countries and territories.

“Since the cloud lives in the data center, many of COLOTRAQ’s largest projects in recent years have come from cloud providers who are expanding their physical data center footprint,” Bouchedid wrote in a blog late last year. “But the growth from their new segment of colocation users has far outpaced the decline in traditional data center projects driven by the mid-market and large enterprise market. As for the small businesses, we have definitely seen all of the 1U/2U projects disappear as these low value, high volume, high churn projects have gone to the public cloud.”

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
