“I was very happy with the work on the weekend and this has given me a great sense of confidence in the team and process.” Steven Rath, Fairfax Media
Over past years we have carried out significant relocation projects for various clients including Fairfax Media, NCSI, Foxtel, SingTel and Dimension Data and we pride ourselves on our ongoing relationships with our clients on the basis of impressive project performance.
An example of a recent project include the successful relocation of ten racks across Sydney with over one hundred items including one partially loaded EMC unit weighing over three hundred kilograms. Due to a tight outage window, twenty priority items were un-racked, transported, racked, patched and operational within the first three hours of the project. The remaining items were onsite within six hours ready to be racked, patched and rebooted and the entire project was completed in eighteen hours.
A further example involving an interstate migration is the relocation of 33 servers from Sydney to Brisbane. The project required same day relocation within 24 hours. All equipment was on site by 4.30am, racked by 6am and fully powered and online by 8am.
