Identify the major tasks to be carried out

Perhaps one of the most critical steps within a data centre move/relocation project, the team will need to create a detailed move plan that includes the equipment move sequence, back-up operations during the move, installation and testing and ongoing operations. The sequencing plan will outline the specific equipment relocation steps -- for example, how each device will be positioned within the racks and how each rack module will be positioned within the overall raised floor space. It is also essential to have a well-coordinated plan with facilities to ensure the appropriate electrical distribution, HVAC capacities, back-up power are in place and compliance with building codes and local ordinances are established.
