Founder Alex Rabbetts established the company – initially known as Migration Solutions – in 2002 focusing exclusively on data centre environments. The company rapidly evolved to become a global expert in providing data centre advice.
In 2010 the company acquired The Gatehouse as its own commercial data centre and, in doing so, changed its name to MigSolv. Two purpose built buildings on a nine acre site in Norwich, The Gatehouse was originally developed by Norwich Union in the early 1990s as its internal computing facility. MigSolv stripped the buildings back to their bare walls and completely redesigned them, reopening The Gatehouse in 2011 as a highly secure commercial data centre.
In early 2016, MigSolv added a range of highly flexible, secure cloud computing services to its portfolio. Designed for businesses large and small, these include public, private and hybrid cloud options.
Marking its 15th year, MigSolv’s new visual identity is based on a bold logo and a set of colourful icons and patterns. Its new website explains MigSolv’s full range of services in simple, non-technical terms and the sectors the company has the most experience in supporting. It also includes a blog where people can see the directors’ views and advice.
Alex Rabbetts, MigSolv founder & CEO, commented, ‘Having entered our 15th year, we’re proud to be able to look back at how far our business has grown in breadth and reputation. We’ve evolved from a specialist consultancy by opening one of the world’s most secure commercial data centres and launching a powerful range of cloud services. And there are certainly many more exciting developments ahead of us.’
