Tailor-Made Data Centre Migration

Cunningham Lindsey - Data Centre Migration - Case Study

The Challenge

Cunningham Lindsey, headquartered in Florida, United States are a leading claims management and loss adjusting business who have operations in the UK. They provide claims management and risk solutions to insurers, brokers and risk managers. Working with our partners CDW, we were engaged to undertake the migration project.

This was a fully managed migration, taking complete control of the process that included Pre-cabling 74 cables to migrate 19 servers and involved liaising with multiple project stakeholders.

The Solution

Planning and Project Management

Our migration methodology is designed to focus on minimising downtime, reducing risks and guaranteeing the efficient delivery of server migration projects. A key element of this process is ensuring that your project manager has prepared for the challenges and utilised the available resources in the most effective way. With this is mind, we assigned a dedicated project manager to ensure all key objectives were met to our market leading standards.


A Technimove Audit is part of our best practice approach to migrations, and as such we audited the environment 5 weeks before the migration.  With the audit complete we were able to confirm all devices within scope of the project and what connections needed to be replicated in the new environment, thus minimising risk and downtime.

The Pre Cable

Pre-cabling is a key strategy for ensuring that we achieve our goal of minimising downtime. With Cunningham and Lindsey this meant our engineers were pre-cabling the new location 4 weeks ahead of the migration. As part of this process, we installed the copper and fibre cables in line with requirements outlined by our partners CDW. As a result, on the day of the migration, the cables were hung ready to install.

The Migration

On the day of the migration, Technimove engineers arrived onsite 30 minutes prior to the start of the migration to sign in and prepare packaging material.

Once onsite, the devices were handed over to Technimove to systematically Decommission, De-rack and wrap in anti-static bubble wrap for protection, before being placed into purpose built, foam lined, server flight cases.

Once the flight cases were secured in the pre-fuelled GPS tracked Mercedes sprinters, Technimove travelled directly to the destination site via the safest and shortest pre-planned route.

Once at Node 4 datacenter, the equipment was unpacked and installed in line with the destination rack plans. Once racked, devices were recommissioned in line with the patching schedules.

Technimove undertook final checks before handing the equipment back over the client for the testing to commence ahead of schedule.

The Result

In partnership with CDW, we ensured through our project management and pre-migration activities that the project was delivered on time and with no issues.

As a result, we delivered above and beyond expectations by:

  • Unloading and packing all 19 servers within 2 hours

  • Reduced, restrained, installed and connected devices within 3 hours

  • Completing the whole project a full 4 hours ahead of schedule.
