How to Migrate without Downtime: An Executive Overview
Migrating applications, systems, and data has always been a challenge for IT staff; in fact, most have just gotten used to the pain and suffering that comes with migrations. To properly migrate applications and data to new platforms involves risk and takes time to complete, meanwhile users have to stop changing data while it's migrated. The larger the storage footprint, the longer that it's going to take, and migrations routinely take hours or days to complete.
Near-zero downtime migration
MIMIX Move uses powerful real-time replication and automated cutover technology to reduce downtime to just a few minutes. Your production server remains fully functional and your users remain online as replication is performed in the background. Once you have verified that your new server is ready to assume the production role, your business experiences only the few minutes of downtime required for the cutover.
