Without further details, the best answer I can give is "it depends."

When moving data and applications from one server to another, you need to factor in enough time to create a backup of the information before performing the move, then perform the move itself, and then perform any cleanup on the destination server once the move is completed. Ideally, you should allow yourself enough time to roll back to the old server in case the move is unsuccessful, so that your users will experience minimal downtime.
