If you’re currently contemplating a move off Centera or ECS, consider all of the available options and think carefully about the scope of your object storage strategies and how easily you can achieve your current and future goals with a single solution.
At Reciprocal we are experts at extracting and transforming Centera and ECS CAS data to deliver, fast, audited, WORM compliant and non-compliant migrations to many different platforms, as well as migrations for Network Attached Storage, Tape Backup Archives, REST, S3 Object Storage, PACS, VNAs and hybrid/non-hybrid cloud platforms.
Regardless of your source storage Reciprocal’s migration engine can deliver your compliant or non-compliant data to the unstructured data storage, platform and protocol of choice, for both on premise and cloud options.
Reciprocal provides end to end application and user data migrations between NAS, CAS, Object, S3, Streamer and TAPE with pro services and project management included. Reciprocal ensures the application is functional and working within the new data location. We deliver our services remotely via VPN using VMware images downloaded to the customer site.
Reciprocal supports all major retention (WORM) protocols. Our methodology ensures accurate transmission of retention settings between NAS | CAS | CIFS |S3 |OBJECT | Streamer. We retain Chain of Custody during the migration via strong checksum (hashing) for every object pre- and post- migration. Reciprocal provides every customer with a complete transaction report (in XML format) for all migrated items.
The need for speed is an important criterion for any migration activity. No one wants to wait months/years for their data to fully migrate before making it available on a new system. Reciprocal has special capabilities for accelerating migration work that are non-disruptive and non-intrusive to a customer’s computing environment.
Reciprocal’s checksum-based Chain of Custody process scans source data completely on the source Object or File systems before migration for any potential issues. All migrations are followed up with a post-migration audit of the target NAS (File) or S3 (Object) system to confirm all files or objects were migrated to ensure a 100% accurate data migration.
Reciprocal has delivered hundreds of successful migrations of billions of files & objects comprised of both User Data and Application Data. Little or no production downtime is a key benefit of Reciprocal’s storage layer, side band migration methodology. Reciprocal’s experienced migration engineers are adept at managing complex, petabyte-sized migrations of all types.
Reciprocal works closely with the major application vendors `like Veritas Enterprise Vault, Nice, Verint, IBM Filenet, Open Text Documentum and is either certified for end-to-end migration, or has a co-engineered process that ensures the application functions to vendor specifications post-migration. This is extremely important as our vendor-supported application domain expertise allows us to seamlessly integrate legacy data into new storage infrastructures. This includes migrations from NAS, Object, S3 or Tape.
