Data migration services

When you have a data migration project, MTI can help you:

  • ·         Do it faster
  • ·         Lower labor expenses
  • ·         Reduce lease and maintenance overlap costs
  • ·         Minimize planned and unplanned outages

With any infrastructure change – whether you are moving to new hardware, consolidating, relocating or optimizing storage – you have to move data. But migrating data is often complex, risky, and costly and can impact application availability and performance.

Data migration with MTI’s Data Migration services can help you reduce the costs and risks of these IT initiatives by accelerating data migrations, lowering labor expenses, minimizing lease and maintenance overlaps, and virtually eliminating application outages. By accelerating the data migration, mti can help you deploy smarter and more cost-efficient technologies with minimal disruption to your business.

Moving Data with realiability

Data migration is the process of transferring data between storage types, servers, formats, or backup and archive systems. It is a key consideration for any system implementation, upgrade, or consolidation. Data migration is usually performed programmatically to achieve an automated migration, freeing up human resources from tedious tasks. Data migration occurs for a variety of reasons, including: Server or storage equipment replacements, technology refresh, upgrades, consolidation, maintenance and Data center relocation.

To achieve an effective data migration procedure, data on the old system is mapped to the new system providing a design for data extraction and data loading. The design relates old data formats to the new system's formats and requirements. Programmatic data migration may involve many phases but it minimally includes data extraction where data is read from the old system and data loading where data is written to the new system.

After loading into the new system, results are subjected to data verification to determine whether data was accurately translated, is complete, and supports processes in the new system. During verification, there may be a need for a parallel run of both systems to identify areas of disparity and forestall erroneous data loss.

Data migration phases (design, extraction, cleansing, load, verification) for applications of moderate to high complexity are commonly repeated several times before the new system is deployed. These works may be done online during services hours or offline after hours depending on the application type and the service as well as the customer .

Upgrades can introduce risk and disruption, especially when the information infrastructure is widely deployed or extensively customized. MTI successfully migrates data at all times  and we are continuously enhance our migration tools and resources to help you plan and execute even the most complex technology and data migrations from any type of storage and OS to NetApp and other storage systems .

What we deliver

  • ·         Reduced risk and minimal system downtime during data and system migration.
  • ·         Minimized impact to service levels during upgrades.
  • ·         Early system success and time to value.
