Transcript of "Migrating to Linux Without Losing Your Data - Managing Migration in Production Environments"

  1. 1. www.linuxit.com MIGRATINGTOLINUX WITHOUTLOSINGYOUR DATA-MANAGING MIGRATIONINPRODUCTION ENVIRONMENTS
  2. 2. www.linuxit.com No computer system lasts forever. Upgrades can take you so far: adding extra hardware, newer software and bigger databases than the original system designers ever thought possible can prolong the life of old systems for a long time, especially in environments where business continuity is the number one priority. There comes a time though when the venerable, hacked and patched old UNIX system has to go and be replaced by a modern Linux system, and when it is the possibility of data loss can make the most experienced CIO feel faint.
  3. 3. www.linuxit.com DATALOSS Potential issues that could lead to data loss include: 1/ Failure to copy it correctly from the old system to the new so it becomes corrupted to a greater or lesser extent, or is completely lost.
  4. 4. www.linuxit.com DATALOSS Potential issues that could lead to data loss include: 2/ Losing control of it so that while you keep a perfect copy, other people are able to access it too.
  5. 5. www.linuxit.com DATALOSS Potential issues that could lead to data loss include: 3/ Failure to define the data that is required for the migration.
  6. 6. www.linuxit.com DATALOSS Potential issues that could lead to data loss include: 4/ Insufficient testing prior to actual data migration.
  7. 7. www.linuxit.com DATALOSS Potential issues that could lead to data loss include: The first can cripple any business; the second may not matter too much if the data concerned is a price list for car spares, but if you are in financial services or running an eCommerce operation, the legal consequences of failing to protect customers’ data can be severe. The more complex the data migration project, the greater the margin for error. That’s why it helps to follow best practice to reduce the likelihood of data getting lost or corrupted during the migration, and to minimise the potential impact on the organisation.
  8. 8. www.linuxit.com GETHELP Designing a new system and migration management are specialised tasks. Your IT team of developers and operators (or DevOps) are not going to be able to fit it in around their regular jobs that keep the existing system working - you are going to need help. A specialist Linux and Open Source Software IT Consultancy with experience managing migrations for organisations large and small can help you choose the right system and manage the migration, keeping disruption to a minimum.
  9. 9. www.linuxit.com GETTHETOOLS A good consultancy will have strategic partnerships with many leading Open Source Software providers giving them access to the best tools needed for migration management. The key to preventing data loss is thorough backups. The first stage of any migration is to establish a cloud-based backup of all your data, not just the obvious databases but all your software, licenses and configurations too.
