My cutover window is very limited (4 hrs)
Traditional migration tools require an unpredictable final scan that can easily extend beyond a planned cutover window. Furthermore, if data transfer is interrupted, it must restart from the beginning.
I have to provide four weeks of snapshot history
Maintaining a period of snapshot history is an operational best practice. Most migration solutions are unable to migrate snapshots, so they need to be rebuilt manually on new systems before cutover.
I need to migrate
thousands of shares
The migration of large, complex share/directory structures with permissions can be automated to save time and reduce errors. Importing source and target pairs of shares would significantly reduce the amount of work.
Near-Zero Downtime Migrations
Migrate mixed storage environments with near-zero downtime, data reorganization, and failback using PeerSync Migration. New storage systems can co-exist with legacy systems to increase flexibility in scheduling the final cutover. PeerSync Migration does NOT require a final scan, reducing any disruption for end users.
Reduce your cutover window
with real-time replication
Split/merge file data to different volumes/servers during migration
Migrate file data between all major storage systems and/or vendors

PeerSync Migration Scenarios
The following graphics illustrate examples of use cases for PeerSync Migration. The key advantage is real-time integration with all major storage platforms to eliminate final scans for non-disruptive migrations. PeerSync Migration offers the flexibility of efficient migration to the cloud or consolidating file servers in on-premises or cloud data centers.
PeerSync Migration for local file servers
The example below shows all supported storage platforms for migrations using real-time replication. Other platforms are supported using scheduled delta-level replication and require a final scan.
PeerSync Migration for WAN migrations
The example below shows how PeerSync Migration can be utilized to migrate file servers to a central on-premises or cloud data center, using SMB or TCP/IP for connections with limited bandwidth or high latency.
