Network Migration Services

Network migration involves moving data and programs from one network to another as an upgrade or add-on to a network system. The process of migration makes it possible to set up migrated files on a new network or to blend two independent networks together.

The need for network migration may result from security issues, corporate restructuring, increased storage needs, and many other issues. Though related to system migration, the process of network migration has a few subtle differences.

System migration moves files to a new operating system, while migration of a network may keep the same operating system but changes how the data is accessed. Sometimes, system migration is performed simultaneously with network migration, but this option may result in additional downtime.

A common issue that can require the migration of a network is data security. Older network systems do not always have the security protocols used in the modern computer networks.

As informational technology and computer sciences advance, security flaws are located and updates to the network code are issued. In some cases, the network code becomes outdated and so insecure that a system becomes obsolete and must be upgraded.
