Movement Planning

Hi all, I want to move my unix servers to another location. I am thinking of two choices:

1. Let HP company to do everything. (Movement, verifying servers after the movement, etc)

2. Let another vendor to do the movement, after that HP engineer comes and check servers, etc.

Would you all to give me more details of both choices, please? Thanks a lot!

Best Regards
ajk

Re: Movement Planning

I would recommend using HP. They will be expensive, but to me the peace-of-mind is worth it. HP engineers will come into your operation, take the servers apart, get them ready to ship and then the movers (HP will subcontract a moving company) will come in, pack them, move them, get them into the new location and then HP will come in and put them back together.

I have used HP and had no problems whatsoever. The cost for picking up 2 machines on a Saturday morning, and delivering them and putting back together Sunday morning was about $15,000 (US dollars) I think.

Hp will help you to planning, checking destination environment, and also, it will contract a insurance for your machines. A hardward enginier will be ready to solve any problem due to movement.


Then let your boss to decide if it is much money.

Re: Movement Planning

Hi there.
Just go for HP.
We took the offer from a cheap moving company.
They damaged our servers and we still wait for the money from the repairs.

Re: Movement Planning

I would use HP. I would also have them come to the new site and make sure you have the correct outlets and power requirements.
