Data Migration

Data migration is the process of transferring data between storage devices or computer systems - preferably without disrupting active applications. This process is usually achieved programmatically with database queries, developing custom software or with external migration tools. The prefered method used depends entirely on the systems invovled and the nature (and state) of the data being migrated.

Reasons for Data Migration

Some reasons for data migration could be:

  1. Server or storage technology being replaced or upgraded to newer version.
  2. Relocation of the data center.
  3. Consolidation on server or storage.
