Featured Testimonial

“Premier Data Center Services performed unbelievably when moving our infrastructure and equipment from one facility to another in the Boston area. We shut down our servers at 8PM and Mark Dunn’s team broke down our infrastructure, loaded their truck into a pre-designated shelving transport system that they had conceived, drove the equipment to our new location, loaded the new rack, re-cabled the rack – and we were up by 3AM.

Some of the work they did that was surprising to us included the following:

  • The move execution was seamless. With VERY LITTLE input from us, they planned the move, the re-organization and re-cabling of our infrastructure.
  • Prior to the move they guided us through the ordering of power and network cables that are appropriately lengthened for our server locations. Previously, the bottom of our cabinets were a puddle of very long heavy black power cords.
  • They delivered to us an infrastructure that was cabled in an organized way we could have previously only imagined. Over the years servers come and go and the network cabling can become a “rats nest”. When Mark’s team was cabling in the new location, we found that they had pre-sized and pre-labeled every network cable we would need for the new location. Now we have great airflow.

In summary, if your time has any value, you cannot move your own equipment more affordably than with Premier Data Center Services. You will spend countless more hours doing the work that they can execute so quickly because of their experience. Further, even if you wanted to move your own system, there is no way that the end result of your efforts will be an infrastructure of equipment that is so well organized, cabled and labeled.”
