Moving Data Faster = Nimbler and More Effective Organization
You have made a big investment in establishing and growing your infrastructure to meet business needs and future growth. And you need data in place on new systems faster, without any problems.
When moving data to new servers or storage hardware, its not only moving the data that is difficult; you will spend a significant amount of time in the pre-move phase including:
Manually designing the new file system on the target
Identifying which files and folders are relevant and need to be moved
Establishing and validating the paths from source to the target system
Determining how the individual folder and file ACLs and attributes are applied (inherit from source or apply target)
Designing and writing scripts to run the copy operation
After the data is moved, the real fun begins. You will need to manually verify the target system(s), including:
Whether the file system was created as it was designed
Whether the data placement on the target is correct
Whether the ACLs and attributes are correct at folder and file levels
Whether users can access their files
Now you can understand why moving unstructured data takes so long and is such a pain. It is one of those inevitable tasks that is unfortunately delayed as long as possible.
How much faster? Over 50% faster.
50% faster? Hardly seems possible. Why hasn't someone done this before now? After all, copying or migrating unstructured data has been around for a long time.
In their current state, all of the data migration or data copy programs move data. Some do it fast and some do it slow. Some use a command line and some have GUIs. The one common denominator of these solutions is that they don't solve the most critical problem areas within the data movement/migration process; the manual design and verification steps. Of course, these are the steps that are most prone to error and can result in costly delays.
FilePilot Software™ Software took a different approach to moving or migrating data and invested a significant amount of time studying the entire process from end-to-end. The result: FilePilot Copy™. It instantly reduces the number of steps in the process and slashes the time required to move data from a source to a target. From planning, testing and verification to actually moving data and cut-over, FilePilot can reduce the time for an unstructured data migration by over 50%.
Which means you can now move data less frequently!
