Last week we spoke about Windows 7 no longer being supported by Microsoft which has caused a lot of people to upgrade their software and their hardware to support either Windows 10 or a new operating system. But the important thing to remember when upgrading is to move all your important data/documents without losing information which you require – Tecnica have the skills and experience to help with your migration and ensure its success.
See below an infographic with some information regarding migration.
Migration is an important part of upgrading any system. When you upgrade your systems you will want to move all of your data with you, to avoid losing important data. Before you move your information, it is key to create a detailed plan in order to ensure success. By having a strategy in place you will be able to monitor and control each and every step of your migration.
There are multiple forms of migration and each come with their own benefits and challenges. It is important for a business to know all about the risks involved in migrating in order to be prepared for them. It is obviously more difficult to do a large migration in comparison to a small one as there is a lot more data to move over.
Application Migration involves moving an application from one storage environment to another. This can be quite complex as applications tend to be specifically made for its original environment where is was developed/released, and the new environment might not reach these criteria.
Database Migration usually occurs when an organisation needs to move their entire database. This can be due to a change in vendors or moving the database to the cloud. Various checks must be carried out to ensure the success of this migration
Storage Migration is the process of moving files in their current form/environment, be that disk, tape or cloud, into another form/environment.
