An IT Manager’s Guide to Data Migration
So you’re stuck with large files slowing down your teams’ daily workflows or maybe you need to migrate your data from point A to point B in the most efficient way possible, if so you have come across the right guide to help you with these tasks.
Firstly, we are going to dive into assessing your company’s data migration needs. Often this duty falls to an IT professional. We want to provide you with the key factors to include in this assessment. We don’t want your company to waste time or money if they don’t need to. We will also provide recommendations for tools of a smaller scale because if you’re reading this guide, chances are you still need an answer to a problem worth solving.
If your assessment has led you to the conclusion that your company requires a file transfer/data migration solution, we will guide you towards several different options. As an IT professional, you already know the pros and cons of certain solutions, but what you may not recognize is the underlying layers of certain benefits one solution has versus another.
Finally, once you have selected the type of solution you are interested in exploring, this guide will help you take the next steps towards advancing your company’s workflows.
Before we proceed to those portions of the guide, it’s important to understand what a file transfer/data migration solution is. Typically, these types of solutions will take your exceedingly large files and / or data sets and move them across WAN to various locations at fast speeds. This allows you to transfer your files to/from remote locations, another office, the cloud, etc. This process is fast, reliable, secure and can provide you with the ability to track your transferred data.
Specifically with FileCatalyst solutions, you are receiving the power to solve the problem of slow and unreliable TCP-based transfers (including FTP, HTTP, and their secure variants). As an IT professional you are privy to the challenges working with these outdated data migration tactics. Those methods are time-consuming and leave you vulnerable file transfer disruptions and potentially to data loss. You will soon have the knowledge of whether or not your company is ready to move onto brighter horizons.
