Server migration is the process whereby data is being moved from one server to another. Data may ne moved between servers for security reasons, because equipment is being replaced, and for any number of other reasons. This process is recommended to be performed by IT specialists who work specifically with servers, although it is also possible for people with some computer skills to migrate their own data between servers. CARE has Microsoft certified server administrators to perform the delicate task of server migrations specifically to eliminate the risks associated with server migrations.
During the server migration process, data may be temporarily inaccessible. The IT professionals performing the migration may need to reformat the data so that it will be accessible in the new server or take other steps to ensure that the migration goes smoothly. Data must be backed up and plans must be made to keep the data secure during the transition process.
