Data Transfer, Backup & Migration
Etekkers provides wide-ranging, reliable data migration, data backup and data transfer that help you cost-effectively manage the impact of switching storage platforms, and maintain business continuity in the process. We make it easy to consolidate disparate media to a common format and type.
- Manage legacy data cost-effectively
- Easily access formerly difficult-to-reach data
- Ensure business continuity
Data Migration is the process of transferring data between storage types, formats, or computer systems. It is often required when organizations change computer systems or upgrade to new systems. Usually, specialized software tools are used to automate migrations. In the process, legacy data stored in out-of-date or obsolete formats is evaluated, indexed, and de-duplicated. Then it is migrated to newer, more cost-effective and reliable media.
If your business maintains legacy data on tapes or other outmoded media, we can move it to disk drives, making it much more accessible and reliable, better indexed, and more cost-effective to store.
We utilize a four-step process to migrate your data:
Working with you, we evaluate your media and determine your requirements. We can access data from any brand or type of media. We decide on the target media for delivering your data including disk or other formats.
We then migrate your data from its original sources and, as necessary, recover data from damaged media, restoring individual files.
Your data is indexed and de-duplicated, and unnecessary files are purged to reduce your storage footprint.
Data is delivered to you on new storage media and is ready for accessing.
Data Migration is the process of transferring data between storage types, formats, or computer systems. Data migration is usually performed programmatically to achieve an automated migration, freeing up human resources from tedious tasks. It is required when organizations or individuals change computer systems or upgrade to new systems, or when systems merge (such as when the organizations that use them undergo a merger/takeover).
To achieve an effective data migration procedure, data on the old system is mapped to the new system providing a design for data extraction and data loading. The design relates old data formats to the new system’s formats and requirements. Programmatic data migration may involve many phases but it minimally includes data extraction where data is read from the old system and data loading where data is written to the new system.
