We've seen it with many of our customers, as a Storage Area Network (SAN) gets older, the costs can escalate rapidly. Vendors often create large financial cliffs which their clients inadvertently fall off after a set amount of time (usually 3-5 years after purchase). In order to mitigate the cost and upgrade technologies, a SAN migration is often needed.
During a SAN migration, the most common method of data movement is using host-based tools integrated at the OS layer. You will be happy to have PARSEC's extensive experience on your side for these types of host-based migrations resulting in a smooth and successful completion.
- We help plan and develop your migration strategy. Do you need host-based migrations? Perhaps you need to make your host cope with a block-based migration at the SAN level. We do that, too.
- We have custom tools and scripts that can radically speed up host-based migrations. These can be operated by the end user to save paying for extra consulting charges.
- We can consult on a complete migration solution, including the migration itself.
