Effortless No Downtime Server and Storage Migrations
Migrating applications, systems and data has always been a challenge for IT staff; in
fact, most have just gotten used to the pain and suffering that comes with migrations.
To properly migrate applications and data to new platforms involves risk and takes
time to complete, meanwhile users have to stop changing data while it’s migrated. The
larger the storage footprint, the longer that it’s going to take, and migrations routinely
take hours or days to complete.
IT staff usually cobbles together a range of tools to perform migrations, but successful
migration is far from quick or assured. Manually configuring the new platform to match
the original system as close as possible and the testing, testing and more testing to ensure
that the applications are functioning correctly on the new platform add to the time,
expense and hassle of migrations.
