    Systems Migration    Duplication:    Disaster Recovery/ Business Continuity    Litigation Discovery

    Data Migration is the process of moving static or preexisting long-term retention data to a newer technology. This involves the moving of data on specific media one or a combination of disk or tape technologies. The process and issues are largely dictated by the platforms and applications involved.
