The ChallengeAfter DTI acquired Merrill Corporation’s Legal Solutions business, they needed to quickly and accurately migrate over 400 TBs of file data from NetApp CDOT 8.2.2 in St. Paul, Minnesota to Dell EMC Isilon in Atlanta, GA. DTI had more than 3.6 billion files that needed to migrate from NetApp to Isilon. It was important for the IT team to find a scalable solution that would fit within their new budget and time constraints.
The SolutionDTI enlisted the expertise of their technology partner, Northway Technologies, to recommend a large-scale migration solution that would accurately and rapidly migrate the data from NetApp to Isilon. Northway Technologies recommended to deploy DobiMigrate for NAS migrations for this large and complex migration.
Metrics for SuccessWith the geographical challenges and abundance of data, it was key for DTI to identify a solution that was completely virtualized that could get the job done quickly and cost-effectively. “In our industry, data integrity is absolutely critical,” said Shaun Cutter, CTO at DTI. “DobiMigrate was the key to success in our data migration initiative without compromising any data. To ensure data integrity, we validate MD5 checksums on both the source and target files to confirm they are identical.”
“We were able to easily deploy DobiMigrate software for our migration. It was a tremendous benefit to our team that no hardware needed to be deployed since everything was virtualized. The support that the team at Datadobi provided was second to none in terms of response and resolving any issues that we encountered on our end during the migration.” – Tho Han, Director of Storage Services
