Data Migration

Home » Data Migration

Data migration is the process of transferring data between data storage systems, data formats or computer systems. A data migration project is usually undertaken to replace or upgrade servers or storage equipment, for a website consolidation, to conduct server maintenance, or to relocate data. The Acromove ServerPack35™ is specifically designed to facilitate these projects and more.Acromove and OSNexus have teamed up to offer the ultimate data migration appliance. The OSNexus QuantaStor Migration Edition (QME) is a ZFS software platform designed for high-speed transport of file and block storage between cloud data centers and on-premise customer sites. QME has support for all major SAN/NAS protocols including iSCSI/FC and NFS/CIFS/SMB with encryption for data protection.

The ServerPack35™ is our hyper-converged portable computing platform offering unparalleled performance in a rugged weathertight package that connects to any system using industry standard high-speed data ports (10/40/56/100 GbE).

Besides the rapid transfer of large datasets, ServerPack35™ has a lot of computing power to process data before it is moved. If you have a complex Hadoop network, an Apache MiNiFi node can be installed on ServerPack™ to organize data for more efficient migration into the data pool, controlled remotely from Hortonworks Horton Data Flow (HDF).

The Oil & Gas Industry has a major need to collect large datasets at drilling sites and move the data to an on-shore processing center. Modern drilling rigs are outfitted with multiple sensors collecting seismic, fluid, and meteorological readings and scans, not to mention camera footage. A large rig can generate over 1TB of data per day. Web connectivity is usually limited at these remote sites; satellite connections are extremely expensive. The ability with ServerPack35™ to move up to 144TB of sensitive data is usually the most efficient method to get timely data back to headquarters for detailed analysis.
