Why Choose Us > For your Data Centre Consultancy
Do you deal with small computer rooms, or just large data centres?
We deal with computer rooms and data centres of any size. A computer room, no matter whether very small or very large, houses equipment that is critical to the business. We believe that every facility, whatever its size, should be treated with the same level of importance.
How can I be sure you have the relevant experience?
At MigSolv we pride ourselves in the fact that all of our staff have worked in data centre and computer room environments. Our consultants regularly visit our own data centre to ensure that they are fully up-to-date with any new processes that are relevant and are applicable to our customers. We have been providing advice on all aspects of computer rooms and data centres, from design, build and operation to the migration of these facilities for over 10 years.
Can you fulfil a short term requirement?
Absolutely! We carry out assignments that are both mid to long term and those that are very short. We can provide help for anything from half a day to several months.
Do you provide project management only services?
Yes. Although we have the capability to provide a full service including design, build, commissioning and operation, we are often asked to provide experienced project managers for clients that have already commissioned their own project but need support from a project manager with an up-to-date technical background.
Can you help me with gaining accreditations?
Yes. We were involved in the drafting of the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centre Efficiency and are both Endorsers and Participants. We can help you to gain Participant status with our intimate knowledge of the code.
Can you provide a full design and build of a data centre?
Absolutely. At MigSolv we do this all the time. We can use our knowledge of current technology, of environmentally efficient equipment and of current best practice to ensure that you have a computer room or data centre that is state-of-the-art, functional, built for operation and is future proof for all known technology. In fact, we’ve won awards for it!
Can you help me select a vendor or provider?
Yes. At MigSolv we are fiercely vendor independent! This means that we can help you select the right product or vendor for your particular needs. We are not tied to, nor have any relationship with, any vendors, so that we can provide informed unbiased advice. We can help you select either through recommendation of appropriate vendors or products, or we can conduct a more formal process through RFP, (Request for Pricing), or ITT, (Invitation to Tender).
Do you only work in the UK?
No. We work anywhere that we can add value. We have customers in France, Spain, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Belgium and Ireland, in Europe. We also have customers in Mexico, Oman, the USA and India. If we can add value we are happy to work in other countries – we will not, however, take on an assignment if we do not feel that we can add value in a particular country or territory.
Can you provide references from your clients?
Sometimes. Although this is generally quite difficult. The majority of our clients would rather not reveal details of their computer room or data centre and much of our work is completed under Non Disclosure Agreements. Indeed, some of our customers are so sensitive about the data that we cannot even reveal their industry. We can sometimes offer references and you can, of course, consult our Case Studies here.
I would like to introduce some best practice processes. Can you help?
Yes. We have dedicated Process and Procedure Consultants who can build best practice process and procedure around your own facility. There is no ‘one size fits all’ process that will work for every computer room or data centre, but we have written the processes and procedures that are used to run data centres for major international organisations, critical health service providers and for companies that wanted to manage their facilities using current best practice.
Can you help me improve the efficiency of my computer room or data centre?
At MigSolv we have an award winning process for assessing computer rooms and data centres for their efficiency. This covers not only the physical infrastructure, but the softer processes and procedures that are used to run it. We are passionate about efficiency in computer room environments because it is good for the environment and good for saving you money!
Can you save me money in my operation?
The short answer is yes. One of our specialities is saving our clients money. We can look at your computer room or data centre and assess both its operation and its construction and we can almost always save you money. In fact, if we can’t we’ll do it for free!
