Types of Data Migrations
All data migrations are not cut from the same cloth. The usual migration suspects include storage, database, application, cloud, and business process migration.
1. Migrating Storage
IT migrates data during a storage technology refresh. The goals of technology refreshes are faster performance and dynamic scaling along with improved data management features.
2. Migrating Databases
Migrating a database can mean moving between platforms, such as on-premise to the cloud, or migrating the data from one databases into a new one.
3. Migrating Applications
Application migration can mean moving data within an application, such as shifting from on-premises MS Office to Office 365 in the cloud. It can also mean replacing one application with a different one, such as moving from one accounting software to a new accounting platform from a different vendor.
4. Migrating to the Cloud
Cloud migration moves data from on-premises to a cloud, or from one cloud to another. This type of data movement is not the same as backing up to the cloud: data migration is a distinct project that moves data from the source environment to populate the new one.
Migrating data is a challenging process with some significant risks attached. It is essential to plan, execute, and test as effectively as possible. If you need a quick, efficient and secure data migration service with no disruption to your business, our experts can help.
