Carbonite Migrate Primary Use Case

Solutions Architect at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
Technically, we use this product in regards to cloud data infrastructure migration; however, these are all things that are driven by the customer. If they are interested in a solution, we make suggestions and provide recommendations. When it comes to cloud data infrastructure challenges, mostly we are attempting to achieve cloud migration from an infra point of view. That's where tools like Carbonite Migrate and RiverMeadow come in handy. We use Carbonite Migrate to migrate our customer's data. The migration of data refers to application data and application infrastructure resources — how many Physical/Virtual servers and CPUs, VM’s, Containers, etc. We also focus on Applications data server dependency. In other words, if your application has 10 different servers, then 10 individual servers need to be migrated Afterward, Carbonite Migrate creates an original migration plan for the new environment and lays out the steps to accomplish this. As data migration can be risky, often it creates an automated pathway in order to reduce migration risk. Let's say a customer has a data problem, we then use these tools to gain access to the customer's environment, run an assessment and come up with the best migration route, identify the blockers and in return, they can create a migration plan. That's how we use this solution. View full review »
