IBM FileNet P8 has been an integral part of many organizations business critical workflow for years. Now many IT departments have important content repositories in storage locations on aging storage hardware that need to be upgraded to new technology.
DataTrust Solutions Professional Service team has been moving Filenet Images Services and P8 content to new storage systems for almost a decade. During these projects one of the primary considerations has been how to minimize User disruptions during the migration process and similarly avoid long outages during the cutover process. The second primary challenge is keeping the IT organization and their end-customers up to data without burning through PS hours.
LiveMigration for FileNet P8 was developed by DataTrust Solutions to transparently move the content. There is no User disruption during the migration and no cutovers. As its name implies, LiveMigration moves content from one storage area to another in real-time. LiveMigration support all valid FileNet P8 storage locations including: Centera, NAS and object. To do live migrations effectively managing the transactions with the FileNet database is of critical importance. LiveMigration has integrated processes to manage the flow of content from one storage area to another while not overwhelming the FileNet database. These processes were developed and refined over the years by our Professional Services organization.
