SANpulse Publishes 10-Step Guide to a Successful Data Migration

Free White Paper Provides Checklist, Ensuring Smooth Transition to New Storage Devices


Paving the path to the next generation data center through people, process and technology, SANpulse Technologies, Inc. today announced the publication of a free white paper that provides best practices for successfully transitioning data to new storage platforms. While upgrading and/or expanding storage can deliver a number of benefits, it can also result in stalled applications, lost data, business disruptions, and immobilized end users. Understanding the challenges in advance can ensure a smooth migration process for better performance, utilization & cost-savings.

The white paper – Moving data successfully: Take 10 for a smooth transition to new storage (http://www.sanpulse.com/content/white-paper-10-steps-best-practices-migrations) – provides 10 steps – six before, two during, and two after performing a migration – to ensure success. Following this guide can reduce errors, support successful migrations, shorten project timelines, and even help organizations come in under budget. Additional benefits can include the opportunity to complete related or long-overdue work such as systems consolidation, upgrades, or reorganization of IT structures.

Storage migration projects are often complex and time consuming, requiring detailed planning to mitigate risk and ensure business continuity. These projects often place a high demand on an organization's internal IT resources and have a negative effect on the overall storage solvency of the organization during the project.

“The faster you can move your new platform from the loading dock and into your IT infrastructure, the faster you’ll be putting your investment to work and helping the business derive maximum value,” states Ralph Hennen, managing director of product development at SANpulse, the white paper's author. “Plan well, communicate clearly, follow these ten steps, and your team will be able to complete the migration more quickly, with minimal disruption, and most cost-effectively.”

Following a few basic steps can make all the difference between good and bad results. IT professionals can get the most out of the process by creating a work breakdown structure (WBS) for each step and including it in a project database. It starts with ensuring that every activity planned, completed, changed, targeted and so on is included in a project database as a starting point of the project. Personnel conducting the migration will use this database to manage the entire process, from setting customer expectations to actually moving the data. It will be an all-in-one working document, project summary, and reconciliation tool. It will help measure efficiencies and more easily acquire and release resources as one moves through this common, yet complex, procedure.
