Data Migration Services
Data needs to be preserved when switching to a new version of an application or when upgrading to a new version of a database. Oftentimes after a merger or acquisition, redundant applications are retired, but the data they contain needs to be preserved in the surviving system. The purpose of data migration is to transfer existing data to the new environment. Data needs to be transformed to a format suitable for the new system, while preserving the information present in the old system.
As warranties expire on storage arrays or static data starts to monopolize expensive storage, many companies will have the urgent need to move data from one storage location to another. This process can pose multiple challenges:
- If data is live, data must be readily available during the migration.
- Data may reside off site and may need to be moved onsite in order to perform migration.
- Some require the migration of data from one server or application to a new server or application.
These challenges can often time hamper a data migration project or even cause the data migration project to be scrapped altogether.
