Data Migration Software

There are many data migration software tools available to facilitate the process of moving data from one system or platform to another. The choice of a specific data migration software tool depends on factors such as the type of data, the scale of data migration, source and target systems, and other specific requirements.

For semi-structured and structured data sources, extraction, transformation and load (ETL or ELT) tools are often used for data migrations. For unstructured data migrations, where the data lacks a predefined data model or structure, the challenges are different from migrating structured data. Unstructured data can include text documents, images, videos, audio files, and other content that doesn’t fit neatly into a relational database.

Cloud Migration Software Options

EasyPathtoCloud_2-150x150Cloud migrations of file data can be complex, labor-intensive, costly, and time-consuming. Enterprises typically consider the following options: 

  • Free Tools: These tools require a lot of custom development are less reliable and resilient and generally aren’t built to migrate massive volumes of data. It’s important to look at broader unstructured data management requirements, not just one-off data migration requirements.
  • Point Data Migration Solutions: These data migration tools typically have complex legacy architectures that were not built for the modern scale of data, which can create ongoing data migration and data management challenges.
  • Komprise Elastic Data Migration: Designed to make cloud data migrations simple, fast, reliable and eliminates sunk costs since you continue to use Komprise after the migration, Komprise gives you the option to cut 70%+ cloud storage costs by placing cold data in Object classes while maintaining file metadata so it can be promoted in the cloud as files when needed.
