Transitioning from Data Migration to Data Management
Migrating data for one-time projects is too time consuming and too expensive, so most companies have come to accept the pain of slow response times or substandard data availability and/or protection. If your organization is looking for ways to stop the migration pain, this webinar will show you how.
Enterprise migration strategies exist to move data between storage systems, locations or to the cloud while minimizing business disruption. Retiring old equipment or implementing a lift-and-shift to the cloud is typically a very painful last step of the project. There has to be a better way!
The solution won’t be found in building a better migration mousetrap, but rather in creating a holistic data management process. Organizations need to eliminate one-off migrations and enable data to flow automatically between storage systems (legacy, flash and object) and storage locations (on-premises and the cloud) as required to meet service level objectives. Doing so not only solves classic migration pain, by giving organizations the ability to add new equipment seamlessly, while also enabling better resource utilization, agility, savings and true cloud portability.
In this webinar, Storage Switzerland and Primary Data have a round-table discussion on how automated data management combined with a clear migration strategy can help overcome the budgetary and technological challenges to implementing new storage hardware, optimizing existing storage resources, or taking advantage of new storage locations, like the cloud.
Points we discuss are:
- What’s the difference between data migration and data management?
- Why does traditional migration software fall short?
- Why create a data flow?
- How do you create an environment for painless migration and data flow?
