Data Migration

Data Migration is the transfer of data from one system to another usually with the aim of upgrading to to faster, or more manageable technology. Tape and optical data archival technology has developed rapidly over recent years, with massive increases in capacity and performance. Systems for managing data have also matured greatly with basic backup applications being superseded by complex data archive management suites.

Keeping up with the changes is no mean feat, most IT departments are under cost constraints that make managing each data a challenge, sorting out a data archive that has grown over the previous 20 years is one of those tasks that can always wait for another day, or can it?

As technology develops so older storage mechanisms become left behind. DLT IV was the predominant tape data storage technology at the turn of the century, but no one supplies new drives that can read the tapes today. NetWare ruled the networking market during the 1990s, but has mostly been replaced by Windows and Linux, so how do you get data back from your archive of NetWare backups?

Optical and Tape Migration Services

To maintain a tape or optical archive requires more than just media storage. What is the purpose of the archive if the data cannot be recovered when needed? So the hardware to read the tapes or optical disks is needed, as is the application that put the data on them and the environment under which it was done.

Altirium's data migration and data conversion service can take away the need to all of this, by transferring the data to new media and to be read using you current backup application. With additional services such as selective processing and data de-duplication the upgrade to higher capacity technology can drastically reduce the space required for your archive whilst ensure data availability for years to come.
