While some businesses make use of data migration software to avoid locking themselves to a specific storage vendor, this approach is not cost-effective in situations where migrations only take place at certain points in the technology refresh cycle. A solution that simplifies the management of data movement by eliminating the need for multiple products or additional management layers while simplifying scalability and availability improvements is needed.
