Data is a key asset for any UK business, and making sure its protected is vital. When you’re changing technologies or amending or removing existing infrastructures, it’s likely that you’ll be looking to perform a data migration to transfer your data to its new home.

Having a trusted professional on hand to offer data migration services can be exceptionally useful. Here at Proxar IT Consulting, we offer support for all kinds of migrations, including file storage data, databases, and application data.

What data migration services does Proxar provide in the UK? 

File storage data migrations

Transferring data from one storage media to another is extremely common. This type of migration is often needed when upgrading hardware to increase storage, when changing technology from one solution to another (such as on-premises to cloud), or when archiving data. We offer file storage migration support to make this process as seamless as possible. 

Database migrations 

Many businesses have a requirement to have a database to aid with data processing operations. You will likely be using an application like Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, SQL Express or other form of non-SQL app. Over time, vendors remove support, software becomes end of life, licensing requirements change, and hardware becomes old and outdated. All of this results in the need for a database migration. Luckily, Proxar IT Consulting is well-versed in performing these complex migrations, and is on hand to offer comprehensive data migration support to assist. 

Application data migrations 

In instances where bespoke software is unsupported by the vendor or compatibility issues arise, the process of moving an application program from one environment to another becomes complicated. Sometimes, the vendor can’t even guarantee if applications will run on the latest operating systems due to testing not performed.
