Data Migration

From Chace Audio

Data migration is the process of transferring data between different storage media, formats, or computer systems. Migration is required when organizations change or upgrade computer systems and when a common storage media is replaced by a more advanced one, making the previous element obsolete.

For example, archival data stored on the once common AIT tape should be migrated immediately to a next generation medium (such as LTO3 or LTO4 tapes) while AIT drives are still widely supported. Waiting too long to migrate data could result in having archival copies which no facility can play back. Once migrated into a new system, data should be verified to determine that it was accurately translated and is complete. During this process, it may be necessary to run both systems in parallel until the success of the transition is confirmed.
