I need to migrate files from DELL EMC SourceOne – Now what?

A common phenomenon in large companies or organizations is leaving large transformations in the IT space until the last minute. A common example can be seen right now as Windows Server 2012 reaches end-of-life and companies scramble to transfer their systems onto a still-supported alternative. The same experience waits for companies using DELL’s EMC SourceOne archive, which is likewise reaching end-of-life. You need to migrate files from your DELL EMC SourceOne archive – but how can you do it, and how do you preserve the integrity of your data in the process?

Archive migration is a stressful occurrence for organizations, which is part of the reasons why it is badly neglected and why companies tend to stay with outdated legacy software far longer than they should. Archives are a necessity on several levels, including for purposes of regulation-mandated long-term storage and eDiscovery, meaning that changes to them are no small matter.

However, leaving them in place for too long ends up causing cascading issues, especially if the archive is no longer regularly updated to take into account new industry needs and government regulation – or, as with SourceOne, if it ceases updating and being supported entirely. At this point, the organization acting as the end-user is left holding the bag and having to rescue their stored data without support.

Fortunately, there is an easy solution to all of these problems: dedicated migrator software with trusted partners who can help you complete your data migration. This way, you have a level of control over the process, preventing data loss.
