Data Center Migrations can be fraught with opportunities for failure: some small, some massive. So it’s understandable if you’re a bit concerned about your upcoming data or data center migration. After all, data migration can be a risky business.
But a data migration is a necessary step in going from where you are to where you want to be. Putting it off will only make the migration more complex in the long run and stifle growth in the interim.
The risks of data center migrations are real
Many companies have experienced significant setbacks from poorly executed data migrations. The business downtime alone can be quite costly – particularly when it exceeds expectations.
And there’s a list of potential data center migration pitfalls to worry about, including:
- Problems from failing to properly validate and test the data migration process
- Trusting the migration to internal employees that lack expertise and experience
- Relying upon out-of-the-box migration tools that aren’t adequate for critical and complex migrations
- Budget overruns resulting from an unrealistic or incomplete migration plan
