For a potential customer we have to migrate 130TB of NAS data with 9000+ DFS links. About 98% is CIFS and 2% is NFS. They are now using a EMC Celera with EMC DX as back end storage. The customer now has a 600GB limit per DFS link they want to decrease the amount of shares and increase the size of the shares (volumes) to at least 2 or 4 TB.
Has anybody experience on moving this much data of a EMC? I wanted to uses SecureCopy for the CIFS part but then you need about 10-15 servers to do this in a resonable time frame.
You need more than one SecureCopy server just because of the volume of the data. You would be limited by the thrue of one single Windows server to move the data. In that case it may take a long time before all the data has been moved. So theoreticaly the more SecureCopy servers you have the faster the migration will happen.
