Moving a Data Center from Austin, Texas to Columbus, Ohio

Planning any type of move can be stressful. Relocating a data center carries the added pressure of moving sensitive electronic equipment. Any delays or mishaps could disrupt business operations.

Herlihy Moving & Storage has extensive experience with data center moves. Whether you need to move a few servers or an entire data center, we have the knowledge, experience and specialized equipment to handle your data center relocation without a hitch.

Our Columbus moving office recently helped IBM move over 200 IT assets, including servers, racks, storage and network equipment, from an Austin, Texas data center to its Columbus data center.

Arriving on February 25, our 9-man technical team prepped, removed and relocated 200 servers, using building protection, air ride and climate controlled trailer, and anti-static packing materials. By the end of the day, they were on the road for the 1,200-mile journey to Columbus.

The move was conducted over the weekend to minimize disruption to IBM’s business operations. Given the mission-critical nature of the servers, IBM opted for our premium expedited service. The Herlihy team drove 20 hours straight to arrive at the Columbus data center by the next morning. Data center assets, valued at $2 million, were fully covered during the trip.

Arriving at IBM’s Columbus data center the following morning, our technicians quickly unloaded the servers and other equipment and put them in place. Our specialists then began the work of racking and cabling servers.  IBM technicians began bringing all the servers on-line later that day.  The data center was fully up and running by the next day.

    James Herlihy and his team are crucial to our consolidation strategy. Herlihy did a fantastic job on relocating this critical development equipment. From shutting down a data center in Austin Texas on a Wednesday night and have the data center relocated 1200 miles to Columbus Ohio, and then having everything back on line before Monday AM. Excellent support!! Thank you James/team
