Data Integrity, Security, and Confidentiality – The Building Blocks of Data Migrations with Datadobi
Datadobi received SOC 2 Type I attestation for unstructured data migration software solution DobiMigrate from KPMG.Learn why this certification ensures the highest standards for integrity, security, and confidentiality of customer data.
Protecting your network-attached storage (NAS) data either in the data center or to the cloud requires a solution that understands the complexity of file data. Traditional backup solutions are often expensive and complex technologies that are not built to backup NAS. They generally use old approaches or hastily built solutions – and anyone who knows NAS, knows that it is anything but simple.
If you’re already familiar with Datadobi, you know that we focus on unstructured data. This presents a unique data mobility problem domain separate from SAN-based block storage datasets.
It’s a huge challenge to migrate and/or protect the hundreds of millions to billions of files and objects that are common in today’s storage environments. To that end, Datadobi is constantly investing in new technologies and methods that allow us to work with these datasets in more and more efficient ways.
For many enterprise-scale organizations, managed system integrators (SIs) have become the ‘go-to’ outsource partners for a vast variety of strategic technology requirements and niche challenges. Using this approach, a project is often transferred from the customer to the SI, and while this offers some very well-established benefits, customers can also become distanced from key processes and find they are unable to respond effectively to changing requirements.
Enterprises are typically very concerned about how long it will take to complete a data migration project. After all, prolonged migrations can cost organizations hundreds to thousands of dollars. As a result, many data migration solution providers have prioritized speed over all other factors.
Recently, I was working with a customer who wanted to test using a Security Identifier (SID) Map file in DobiMigrate. For those unfamiliar with SID mapping, DobiMigrate has the ability to replace source SIDs with new SIDs as the data is written to the destination file server, and can do the same for User IDs (UIDs) and Group Identifiers (GIDs).
