NetApp DataMotion Software

NetApp DataMotion gives you always-on data mobility. Perform live data movement and maintain continuous data access.

 NetApp® DataMotion™ data migration software lets you move data from one logical or physical storage device to another, without disrupting operations. You can keep your shared storage infrastructure running as you add capacity, refresh infrastructure, and balance performance. 

NetApp DataMotion for vFiler® secure partitioning integrates three proven NetApp software technologies—MultiStore®, SnapMirror®, and Provisioning Manager—so you can:

  • Keep your clients and applications connected to their data regardless of its physical location.
  • Implement multi-tenancy with the high service levels expected in virtual server environments and IT-as-a-service.

NetApp DataMotion for Volumes moves storage volumes, with or without LUNs, from one aggregate to another. You can:

  • Manage logical resources by rebalancing load and performance for specific datasets. 
  • Avoid hot spots, manage capacity, and adjust service levels by assigning each volume to the appropriate disk pool.

NetApp DataMotion integrates with all major virtual server environments, including VMware®, Microsoft® Hyper-V™, and Citrix XenServer.
