Large Migrations

Heavy objects must be transported safely across distances and obstructions, all while your team works against deadlines and budget restrictions. A large migration project increases the likelihood of a costly accident.

Tripping, slipping, making a misstep, or inviting muscle fatigue and strain are all possibilities if proper equipment is not being utilized. With the right resources, however, a large data center migration can be accomplished quickly without injuries or damage.

Why ServerLIFT®?

Successful migrations depend on using a purpose-built device to carry out the three essential functions of any data center lift: it must safely and effectively transport, position, install, and remove servers.
