I'm doing market research for H/W replacements in preparation for an RFI.  

Peers, what are the top 8 NAS solutions? Thanks.

Dear All,

Any use cases where dfs and non-dfs shares are migrated to Cohesity Data Platform with near zero downtime?

I feel below solutions are feasible:

1. Use Robocopy, pl

2. dfs replication provided windows OS supports the functionality

3. Backup and Restore.

4. Build a VM out of Cohesity and use VMware native tool to migrate everything.

If you any other methods, please share your views.
