When your current data solution is no longer meeting your business needs, it might be a signal to consider migrating. Undergoing a migration to a new data center or colocation provider can be an intimidating task. It is time-consuming and needs to be carefully planned down to the smallest detail. But how do you know when the time is right?
Growth and expansion
As a business grows, the chances are big that your current IT infrastructure may need to expand as well. If the needs of your IT infrastructure change and there is simply not enough power or resources available – migrating is a way to create room for growth and expansion. A flexible colocation option will give you the ability to scale up or down easily.
The most important aspect of good customer service is a fast response time. In a 24/7 culture, availability and reliability of online services is the key to success. It’s vital for business owners that the response times are fast; there’s nothing worse than slow support responses. A good support staff offers a peace of mind and assurance that the data center provider has your back. Make sure to check how quickly support tickets are addressed.
