 Data center facilities and relocation

Your business is putting greater pressure on the data centre to provide services faster ... while operating in an environmentally sustainable manner. Ageing technology, limited infrastructure and the high cost of facilities often make this difficult to achieve. If you're in the process of upgrading data center facilities, the ideal site for new data centers may not be immediately obvious. 

Virtualization, consolidation, automation and cloud may all be influencing your decisions about where to build your data centers, or even whether you build one at all.



Dimension Data's data center consolidation and relocation services enable you to minimize risk, while optimizing your data center resources and locations, with consideration of technology changes in the areas of virtualization and cloud.

We'll also work with you to optimize your power and cooling requirements and explore opportunities to make use of cloud services to better meet your corporate sustainability  objectives.

Our services cover:

  • data center relocation
  • power and cooling optimization
  • data center design
  • data center consolidation
  • data center modernization




  • Enabling the next generation data centre

    ​​​​The pundits all have an answer on the future vision of IT, but no enterprise is there today nor likely to be at that future state any time soon.  Reality is today's IT budgets are dominated by data centre infrastructure spending and resources to manage those centres.  How does an enterprise plan their data centre to meet immediate needs and not overspend as the hybrid model takes root?


 Our data center facilities and relocation services will enable you to:


  • reduce power and cooling costs
  • optimize your data center design
  • explore opportunities to save costs and boost efficiencies through consolidation
  • trim capex and opex through a cloud model


  • ensure that your data center locations support compliance requirements
  • extend the useful life of your ageing data centers
  • reduce energy consumption
