A large state government electric grid management company moved their data centre across the state to be closer to their HQ. The data centre was built new from the ground up. The company needed an expert to manage the entire project to ensure a smooth relocation.
With approximately 500 devices that needed to be relocated to a facility 425 miles away, it was imperative that interdependencies were expertly managed to ensure the relocation went smoothly and without interruption to the business operations.
Within a 11month planning period, MultiTek Global

•At destination: reinstalled all devices & recabled.
•Kept the customer senior management team uptodate and coordinated with customer teams to bring their applications and data back online.
This data centre relocation came in on budget, with minimal disruption to the business and high praise from the client.
