Data Migrations are safe with us
Technology Garden has been doing data migrations for more than 5 years, both within and between private and hybrid cloud environments.
In order to implement and take advantage of the Data Fabric concept for hybrid cloud solutions, your NetApp systems must operate on Clustered Data Ontap (cDOT). If your systems are still operating on 7-mode, then you first need to upgrade your systems to cDOT. Such an upgrade also requires data migration:
- If you implement new storage hardware (with cDOT), a single data migration will be sufficient: from the old to the new systems;
- If you want to keep your current hardware, then a double migration is needed: first you need to migrate your data to a temporary system (swing gear), then upgrade your own systems to cDOT, and migrate the data back from the swing gear.
Our standard migration services consists of the following steps:
- Develop migration plan
- Install & remove swing gear (if applicable)
- Execute data migration (single or double)
- Cut over
- After care
