How to Plan an Office Move for Your IT Infrastructure

How to Plan an Office Move for Your IT Infrastructure

One of the most exciting milestones a business can achieve is growing to the point where it needs a larger office space. While this is indeed a good thing and indicative of many of the most important parts of running a business going well, it can also be stressful to imagine how you’re going to move an entire IT infrastructure from one location to another.

We want to help simplify this process today by highlighting three of the biggest priorities you want to get right during a big move.

Consider Your New IT Infrastructure Needs

Before getting too ahead of yourself, it’s important to consider what will be available to you at your new office location. What kind of existing infrastructure is there already? Can this existing infrastructure support the needs of your business? You’ll want to consider factors like Internet connectivity, network infrastructure, and electrical writing to ensure the office can support your company’s needs. It is particularly important to guarantee that the entire office has high-speed, reliable Internet access. Of course, it’s also important to ensure you can effectively cable your in-house network and infrastructure, so be on the lookout for data ports and power outlets for your networking needs.

Consolidate Where Appropriate

When moving your IT infrastructure from one location to another, you have an incredible opportunity to reexamine how you have been doing things and make adjustments or consolidate as appropriate. You can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your current hardware and software infrastructure by considering the cloud for virtualization purposes. Of course, the cloud has other benefits, such as scalability, flexibility, and cost savings, all of which are furthered by the opportunities to include remote work in the mix. Remember, you can save a lot of time and energy on your in-house infrastructure by minimizing what actually needs to be present in-house.

Plan Your Relocation and Setup

Finally, before you commit to the big move, it helps to have a plan in place for how you will go about it. We recommend you take a full inventory of your systems, then coordinate the disconnection, transportation, and reinstallation of your servers, computers, and networking components, all while ensuring you have access to important data and software applications in the new location. We recommend that you work with ImageSys LLC to ensure that the process is carried out efficiently and without disrupting your operations.

You Don’t Have to Do It Alone!

Look, moving your entire business infrastructure is stressful enough as it is. Don’t make it even more so by thinking you must do it all alone. Let ImageSys LLC help you make the process easier and more efficient. Learn more by calling us today at 301-740-9955.
