Their priority is to deliver high quality patient care, and they have a highly qualified rehabilitation team, unparalleled depth of experience, and the most advanced technology.

The Challenge

The company’s focus is solely on the patient and providing the best care with the most advanced technology. They wanted to migrate data to a more flexible environment for their needs. A significant amount of their critical SourceOne data was stored on an aging, near-capacity Centera®. This large healthcare provider turned to their trusted technology partner, Data Blue, to assist in this mission-critical project to move 34TB of data from the old Centera to an Isilon®.

The Solution

Data Blue wanted to ensure that this data was migrated quickly, cost-effectively and most importantly, accurately, without any disruption to their day-to-day business. Data Blue enlisted the assistance of Datagr8, the experts in storage platform migration, to deploy the DobiMiner software for this technology transition.

DobiMiner extracted the metadata from the customer’s existing storage platform and gave their team powerful insights, so they were armed with a complete, holistic view of their data and users to intelligently plan their migration.

Metrics for Success

It was important that this migration be completed quickly and that all of the critical data was available without any disruption to the 24/7 life in the healthcare industry.

Business Benefits

The large healthcare provider was able to streamline their technology transition and migrate its data according to plan. The migration was done in less than a week, which was a much shorter duration than originally anticipated. The customer’s Information Technology team was able to focus on their core competency, which is to provide unparalleled support and service to their patients and their families with the most advanced technology.
