Migration Services

Moving data to the cloud reduces your infrastructure, maintenance, and operations and free up valuable resources by transforming capital expenditure (CAPEX) into operating expenditure (OPEX). To this end, the three major cloud service providers ( CSPs) – Amazon Web Services ( AWS), Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) – have new online data migration tools to simplify the delivery of information from your on-site to the cloud.

Enhancing the Data Migration Process:

Older online data migration methods such as secure file transfer protocol (SFTP) only use a single thread for data transfer. While this is functional and valid, top-of-the-line throughput is not allowed, thus limiting the speed at which data moves to the cloud. We have 3 new tools from AWS, Azure, and GCP:

  • AWS Data Sync
    This data transfer service simplifies moving data between on-premises and AWS. Key features include:
    • Parallelism and multi-threading which can lead to increased performance in data transfer.
    • Simple to deploy and easy to manage on-site component.
    • The data transferred is encrypted.
  • Azure
    Azure is a command-line tool used to copy or sync files to the storage. Key features include:
    • Optimized to take advantage of multi-threading and parallelism, increasing data output when replicating on-site data with Azure storage
    • Scripts can be written to run schedules, data will be replicated to defined Azure storage targets.
  • GCP Cloud Storage
    GCP has provided the command line utility to replicate or synchronize an on-premises volume to Google Cloud Storage. Key features include:
    • The organization's long - term utility is downloaded and configured to run once or on schedule via a script with an existing bucket created.
    • Using the sync flag in strategic service ensures that the data replicated to Google Storage corresponds exactly to the source volume.
