Storage I/O trends

Data migration and movement, whether to support technology upgrades or replacements, tiered storage, ILM, consolidation, BC/DR and load balancing among other things is something that most if not all IT environments do at some point in time. Some organizations based on size or other criteria may be more involved with data migration on a more routine basis using host software, appliances or migration tools, storage system as well as migration services.

Robert (Bob) Scheier has a new article over on SearchStorage about Eight data migration tips” that provides a good basis or starting point for learning more about issues, options and general items to consider with regard to data movement and migration. Read more what Robert and those he talks with including me in his new article here.
