Data Center Relocation Service 4/13/18

Recently, one of our partners contacted us regarding one of their clients. The company was a Southeast-based identity verification company wanting to move their data center from Florida to Georgia. The move was planned and organized for months. The week of the move, Sherlock sent two engineers to Florida to map out all the cabling, equipment locations and to prepare the move. On Friday, the systems were brought down and by 2 pm, the customers' data racks and equipment were loaded up and headed North by Sherlock's certified carrier. At 8 am Saturday, the equipment was unloaded into the new data center in Georgia. All of the equipment was relocated into new data racks, the rewiring completed and the customer was back online that evening.  Another successful data center relocation; just one example how Sherlock Services supports your Enterprise IT needs.


Why Use a Third Party Maintenance Provider? 3/28/18

Per Gartner Group, TPM contracts offer customers an average of 60% savings off OEM support list prices.  However, depending on equipment type, location and product density, Gartner has seen that the range of savings is more like 50-95% off OEM list pricing.
