NAS & File-System Migrations

Migrating to whichever File storage platform that suits your needs⎯no matter which vendor⎯should be your choice. But as most storage people have painfully experienced, migrating can be treacherous, potentially resulting in a dramatically reduced–or even non-existent–Return on Investment from your new storage.*

With DobiMigrate, your are free to choose whatever storage best suits your needs because DobiMigrate gets you to your new platform quickly no matter who the vendor:

  • DobiMigrate uses industry standard protocols and publicly available interfaces so that we are 100% vendor independent.
  • We work with all the large storage vendors and have direct access to their engineering should the need arise.
  • We have a wealth of experience migrating from/to just about every major (and many minor) storage platforms.
  • Our lab contains hardware from the most important storage vendors (where hardware is involved) so we can thoroughly test every aspect of a migration.
  • Many vendors rely on us to provide them with engineering knowledge about File and Object migrations between storage platforms (even in-family).

*This is backed up by research from Gartner that predicts that through 2019, more than 50% of migrations will exceed budget: “Best Practices to Mitigate Data Migration Risks and Challenges”

Datadobi is the only File and Object mobility company that understands your needs and has purpose-built software to get you where you need to be:

Cloud Migrations

Getting File or Object data to the Cloud could be one of the best cost-reducing projects you take on in the next few years. But are you equipped to deal with the challenge of moving your File or Object data to the Cloud?

Centera Migrations

Dell EMC Centera was a great object storage platform but it has been superseded by newer technologies that provide many more advantages. Migrating from a Centera, to any other platform, can be a challenging task due to the unique nature of the Centera.

Datadobi’s founders were instrumental in building Dell EMC Centera so its no wonder our Centera migration service, driven by our industry leading DobiMigrate software, is considered the best in the business and used by hundreds of the world’s top companies:

  • Discovery – You will get a full picture of your current storage environment before we begin the project.
  • Scoping & Planning – Using the reports, we will create a full scope document including confirm the needs of the new storage which will be used as input to a full and detailed planning.
  • Migration – DobiMigrate automatically, and with the utmost accuracy, rapidly migrates the data, users, and applications to the new platform.
  • Monitoring And Reporting – Your project stakeholders will be able to access up-to-the-minute file-by-file reporting for any level of the organization.
  • Finalization – You will get a full and detailed reporting down to the file level so that you have the confidence that the migration was a success and you have full documentation for records keeping.

Tried, tested, and trusted by many of the world’s most influential organizations.

DobiMigrate is the only Enterprise-class File and Object migration software that takes absolute care to migrate your compliance data correctly and provides evidence to prove it:

    • DobiMiner performs a MD5 hash of the source file and compares that with the MD5 hash of the target file after it’s copied.
    • After the cutover for a WORM migration, DobiMiner adds a final step of ‘Copy WORM’.
    • DobiMigrate will then read-back that date to test its accuracy.
    • With the file handle still open, DobiMigrate will make the file immutable and then close the file.

Compliance Migrations

Your compliance data is probably among the most important data in your company. And when migrating compliance data to a new storage platform, you want to make sure your migration solution is 100% accurate…and can prove it. Not being able to produce evidence that your compliance data is still compliant after a migration probably means it isn’t.
