Cloud migration plans are often challenging due to the unforeseen differences between on-premises and cloud environments. Organizations are finding out the hard way that the lift-and-shift approach isn’t as easy as it sounds, as it takes an effort to rearchitect workloads to fit the cloud.

BlueXP provides you with tools for freeing up your data-center capacity while validating that the migrated workloads operate properly on the cloud before you actually move them.

Know what data you’re migrating

Learn More

Understand the nature, quality, and sensitivity of your unstructured data using BlueXP classification so that you can optimize your data set before you move it to the cloud

  • Collect file information such as age, ownership, and permissions
  • Identify and tag PII and other sensitive information
  • Categorize data and apply migration polices for the different data categories

Move your secondary data

Free up storage by moving your secondary data first, as well as tiering your cold data - so that no matter how long the primary migration takes, you won’t run out of space

Test workloads in the cloud before migrating

To ensure your primary workloads work properly in the cloud, BlueXP lets you easily burst small portions of data to the cloud to verify compatibility before the full migration takes place

Workload migration_ 3A

Create a lightweight version of the on-premises ONTAP data in the cloud using BlueXP bursting

Workload migration_ 3B

Easily test, fix, and repeat until the workload operates perfectly in the cloud

Workload migration_ 3C

Delete the test data set and migrate the full data set using BlueXP replication

Migrate primary workloads and maintain hybrid cloud data mobility

Move your primary workloads to the cloud and reduce ongoing operational overhead and complexity afterward by using the same storage operating system both on-premises and in the cloud

  • Leverage your IT team’s existing on-premises knowledge and skills to manage cloud workloads
  • Move workloads effortlessly back and forth between on-premises and cloud environments
  • Ensure enterprise-grade data performance, resilience, and cost-efficiency no matter where the workloads run
