Preparing for and Performing Data Migrations

Migrating data has always been a part of IT. And while one of the biggest business drivers today is mandates to move on-premises stored data to the cloud, less extreme storage migrations take place on a regular basis such as when new servers or NAS devices are deployed, servers are consolidated, when data needs to be load balanced across storage devices, or simply reducing your data footprint. When it comes to both preparing for and performing migrations of stored data, Condrey Corporation has the tools to help you determine which files to migrate and which to delete or archive, then provides the automated means to perform migrations.

Assessing Your Data Before the Migration

Reporting technologies from Condrey Corporation enable you to identify the data being stored, where the ROT (Redundant, Outdated, and Trivial files) exist, when files were last accessed or modified, who owns the files, “orphaned” files that were once owned by a former employee, specific data that should not be migrated due to technical limitations or data residency requirements, and much more. Security reporting can help you understand any security considerations. Having all of this information, you are equipped to make decisions on permissions to modify, which files should be deleted or archived, and which to keep before performing the migration.
