Real-time Data Migration for Windows and NetApp Systems
One of the most challenging aspects of efficiently bringing a new storage system online is the ability to migrate existing data from older systems onto a new storage platform. Resource demands (staff, CPU, data size, bandwidth), and risks (application downtime, performance impact to production systems, technical incompatibilities between heterogeneous environments, data corruption / loss) must be considered and managed to ensure that everything goes as expected.
With our PeerSync Migration Edition and PeerSync Migration Edition for NetApp we can cover the following migration scenarios thanks to our world-class scanning and real-time replication technology:
- NetApp Data ONTAP 7-Mode to Clustered Data ONTAP

Migrate with Minimal Disruptions
Peer's real-time data replication engine and advanced scanning technology minimizes disruption during migration projects by eliminating the need for a final scan during cutover for Windows and NetApp source systems. This is possible because file change events that occur on live production systems are captured and replicated simultaneously with the underlying migration process.
For all other major storage platforms, PeerSync Migration Edition reduces migration related disruption via Peer Software's enhanced scanning technology that dynamically builds and executes multi-threaded scans based on the data directory structure, ensuring to that the final scan during migration cutover is completed quickly.

Comprehensive Monitoring Console
PeerSync offers a detailed monitoring console to provide administrators with critical information about replication jobs needed to determine cut over to a new system.
With our byte-level technology, only changed parts of a file will be transferred to the target system to save bandwidth while file recovery technology enables PeerSync to resume file transfers where they left off in case of a connection loss. Both features are a great help if you need to migrate over a WAN link.
PeerSync can migrate data in real-time from Windows Server to a NetApp Filer or from one NetApp Filer to another NetApp Filer.
Dynamic Source-Target Mapping
Source-Target Mapping can be imported from a text file at the start of a job to simplify job management.
NetApp Qtree Breakout Support
PeerSync Migration Edition for NetApp also enables data reorganization at the folder and file level which is ideal for Qtree breakouts when migrating from NetApp Data ONTAP 7-Mode to Clustered Data ONTAP systems.
Support for Reparse Points (Windows only)
PeerSync offers support to migrate your reparse points without bringing back the original files from the archive. PeerSync will simply replicate the reparse points to the target system.
Ease of Use
In addition to boosting productivity by assuring on-demand data availability, PeerSync also bolsters the bottom line by decreasing your total cost of ownership via flexible licensing options. PeerSync Migration Edition requires minimal setup time and administration and has little impact on your current environment. Powerful options, including Open File Management (VSS), ByteReplicator, TCP, and Multi-Threading, further establish PeerSync as the industrial-strength standard for data protection, distribution, and business continuity.
