As with any other major data center relocation effort, the consulting partners chosen are one of the most critical decisions.

When National Pen, a global company providing promotional products desired to relocate their data center located at a co-location facility in Irving, Texas to a new managed services provider (MSP) facility in the Dallas Metro area they chose PlanNet as their consultant of choice.

Embarking on the project with a schedule driven by critical facility and seasonal business imperatives, PlanNet is helping to drive the schedule, ensuring that all deadlines are met. PlanNet is also involved in developing an appropriate migration strategy that supports the relocation of National Pen’s systems, services and assets from the old facility to the new facility. Once the MSP is under contract, PlanNet will further develop and oversee the migration assessment and strategy to identify risks, costs, migration patterns/approach, and provide project management and migration consulting throughout the planning, IT infrastructure deployment and migration of the project.
