SERVER UPGRADES AND MIGRATIONS
At DNS we like to think that all the services we offer are done at the highest level of excellence. But one thing that we do better than any other service we offer is preforming server upgrades and migrations. If you or your company has ever gone through a bad migration then I don’t have to tell you how painful that can be. Server upgrades of any kind are prone to post install issues and can cause significant loss of time and productivity. The most common reason for any type of upgrade or migration to cause loss in productivity or post install problems is not seeing the big picture.
One thing we take great pride in at DNS to trying to understand your big picture. Not a general big picture, but your specific big picture. Understanding the impact to your core business and how the products you have tasked us to upgrade affect you in a day to day scenario. It’s very easy to do most upgrades. Ask any IT administrator that has installed Exchange Server 2010 for the 100th time. It’s like driving while tired at night, you know you got in the car and know you got home, but how you got there sometimes is a bit blurry.
At DNS we avoid these pitfalls and take the time to look at the environment, see how the changes we make will impact the rest of your infrastructure and what post migration pains you will feel. If you know before the upgrades happen what to expect then we can prepare to minimize any issues that should occur. Sometimes not knowing what to expect afterwards can not only impact productivity but can also cause you significant monetary loss. Knowing Outlook 2003 is not compatible with Exchange 2013 is a prime example of poor planning leading to unexpected additional spending to complete the upgrade. So don’t leave your upgrades and migrations to chance. Give DNS a call and we will sit down and plan a smooth transition to what the upgrades you are planning.
