Cloud Migration
Migrating data and applications to the NAN cloud requires a different process to traditional hardware-to-hardware solutions but is faster and easier because the cloud is a much more fluid environment. NAN’s cloud gives you the freedom and flexibility to access your files from anywhere, at any time, enabling users to operate more productively and ultimately increasing your bottom line. For customers that have already invested time and money into a local installation of vSphere, customers can leverage a free tool called “vCloud Connector” that will enable the migration of templates between environments and offer basic management from their vSphere client. For those virtualizing for the first time we offer a number of methods for migrating data from your local site to ours including third party and first party tools that can handle in place conversion or real-time replication to the cloud. Many tools are free to use and offer a variety of conversion time frames with little to no down time. NAN provides several options that make it possible for IT organizations to migrate their data into the cloud.
