Top 10 best practices for HPC Data Center Relocations
There are many reasons that a company or institution might need to move a large computer system. New equipment might necessitate the currently installed systems being relocated within the same data center to provide space.

Whatever the reason, moving a large HPC installation is a massive undertaking that can fall anywhere between a nightmarish disaster to a relatively painless process.
