Our bonafide migration experts deliver the flawless migration that your boss expects and your business needs
Leapfrog Online had been unhappy with their primary colocation vendor for a number of years, but the thought of moving was too stressful. Then they met Deft, and we did it for them.
A data center migration in 7 proven steps
In helping hundreds of companies migrate everything from single applications to full data centers, we’ve developed a thorough migration process. Here’s an overview of the steps.
"Well, we got more than we expected. The Deft team worked with us and took our needs to heart as though they were part of our company. They proactively created a rack diagram and performed our entire installation without a hiccup. The team at Deft has also saved us a lot of time by providing the required network and power cabling for us. We’ve been pleasantly surprised by how quickly and efficiently Deft staff addresses our requests and concerns."
"With the volume of data we manage and the sophistication of our platform, a migration was not going to be a trivial effort. Deft was able to make a compelling case to move our primary hosting to take advantage of their network, expertise and support, rather than purchasing a point-to-point product from a traditional carrier and paying for cross-connects on each side. This is a technical point, but it was a critical component that set the stage for the larger migration."
"When we moved from our other data center with another vendor, we realized late how many moving parts (literally and figuratively) were involved. My staff powered down at the old location on a Friday night, and asked Deft to manage the physical part of the move. It took them less than six hours to relocate all of our equipment and reconnect us. On a Friday night."

"There were a lot of moving pieces — everything had to fall in place almost perfectly for us to pull this off. With Deft’s expertise, responsiveness, and flexibility, we were able to complete the server migration on time and on budget."

the little things
No detail too small
Your IT team doesn’t perform dozens of data center migrations a year — nor should they. It’s not their job. Fortunately, it is ours.
Our migration specialists are old pros. Every aspect of the move is planned down to the smallest detail, such as:
- Measuring every door/hall/elevator opening width
- Labeling every single device on the front and back (some servers have nifty LCD screens, but those screens are off during a migration)
We’ve performed hundreds of migrations over the past twenty years. Every single one taught us something new. All of that knowledge can carry you into a better data center, and you don’t have to learn any of it first-hand.
