Onboard to Liquid Web: A Step-By-Step Guide to Migrating Your Data to a Virtual Server
You need to move your data over to enjoy the benefits of an externally hosted VMware virtual cloud server at Liquid Web. This step-by-step guide helps you prepare to move your data to a virtual machine (VM) hosted with Liquid Web. It provides an overview of the process, so you know what to expect. Our technicians are available every step to help.
Before you start, it is best to have a migration strategy session between Liquid Web and your team to ensure the most effective migration for you. It helps to review the amount of data you need to move, the nature of the data, its current role, age, and cleanliness. By doing this at the start, you can determine the ideal method of moving your data along with any migration tools you might need to make the process as painless and efficient as possible.
The migration strategy session establishes a team comprised of representatives from your organization and Liquid Web. At least one person from your organization must have administrator credentials for your server.
While this article focuses on moving data across the internet, it is possible to move data via other methods. For example, for some of our clients, it is easier and faster to transfer their data to a mobile storage device such as a thumb drive or portable hard drive and ship the storage device to us to upload.
