Our history

2002

Our consultancy practice

Migration Solutions was established in 2002 as the only UK consultancy to specialise exclusively in data centre environments.

We recognised that, in spite of the fast-growing role of corporate IT, there was an acute lack of guidance on the specialised environments needed to house it.

We rapidly evolved to become global experts in data centre strategy, reviews, standards and operations. And we ran data centres on behalf of a number of blue chip clients.

2010

A data centre of our own

In 2010, we acquired The Gatehouse in Norfolk as our own commercial data centre.

The Gatehouse – two purpose-built buildings on a nine-acre site – was originally developed by Norwich Union in the early 1990s as its internal computing facility.

Its Norwich location was perfect. It was not in a flood plain nor an area at risk of terrorism. It was surrounded by plenty of space for us to install high security systems. The area suffers no power shortages and is easy to reach.

But, as a 20-year old facility, it needed major refurbishment to bring it up to the latest standards. We stripped the buildings back to their bare walls and completely redesigned them, investing in the latest, environmentally-efficient equipment and tightest security.

This enabled us to open The Gatehouse in 2011 as a world-class commercial facility in East Anglia providing ultra-secure, high-quality, flexible colocation services. And, in doing so, we changed our name to MIGSOLV.

2016

The Cloud and beyond

In January 2016, we added a range of highly secure Cloud services to our portfolio:

  • Public Cloud – a flexible, agile, cost-effective service
  • Private Cloud – for companies with more demanding computing needs
  • Hybrid Cloud – offering greater flexibility and data deployment options

In the spring of 2016, we introduced a new visual identity for MIGSOLV, along with a new web site, as you see today.

Our bold logo and vibrant colours reflect our down-to-earth, no-nonsense style and the very different approach we take from the rest of the industry.

MIGSOLV today is your trusted data centre partner.

What our clients say

MIGSOLV’s data centre has not only provided us with excellent facilities … but working in partnership has allowed us to win large new business opportunities. The data centre is a high quality build and MIGSOLV’s ethic of providing excellence in service is very welcome.

Computer Service Centre

The selection of MIGSOLV came down to flexibility, quality and cost. And the data centre’s connections to major network providers proved a massive benefit as we have facilities in Australia and UK. We operate out of four data centres and The Gatehouse is far ahead of the others.

Bluecube Technology Solutions

Thank you for providing an excellent suite of documents in readiness for our new data centre to gear-up as a class-leading facility. MIGSOLV have given us the ‘run-book’ for service excellence – enabling us to commence operations with best practice as our baseline.
