We migrated large amounts of data from old storage hardware to the new storage without disrupting business operations or risking data loss using data management solutions. We also ensured that:
1. The hardware is maintained and upgraded for optimum performance and cost-effectiveness
2. There are no outages or productivity impacts associated with aging hardware
Even if there is a great system in place that works fast and has low latency, moving petabytes of data just takes time, and involves a great deal of risk of losing data.
The larger the scale of the data migration, the more opportunity for issues along the way. We had to find a way to do large-scale data migration without any downtime, outside business hours.
We used storage-native, third-party tools to migrate large amounts of data. Our approach also allowed applications to continue modifying a source system’s data without causing issues between the source and the target.
