Corporate data growth presents the greatest concern and challenges for organizations in today’s data center environment. Technology and management complexities are abundant; in order to cope with growth challenges it is quite normal for an organization to upgrade their backup hardware and software solutions.
Technology advances with tape drives, spinning disk and backup platforms offer performance and capacity advantages, keeping burgeoning backup windows in check, and reducing the costs of storing offline copies of data. Advances in backup software address challenges in the complexity of backup data management.
With each change of backup hardware and/or software, a legacy of older data remains in a format that may not be compatible with your new solution. Corporate governance increases emphasis on both retaining access to legacy data and the ability to retrieve and present it in a timely manner. For best practice, data stored in archival tape and backup software formats should be made current through a migration process to your new solution.
The migration of backup media is complex and can involve a number of different elements, dependent on the exact nature of the project. Most companies that attempt their own legacy data migrations run projects that go on for many months, never actually complete or fail to take into consideration corporate governance and data management best practices.
