Cloudfirst Rapid MigrateTM SaaS Solution

Rapid Migrate is our high-performance orchestration tool to automate migration off your legacy archive or storage management platform (we currently support most leading vendors) to your next-generation storage and archive platform regardless of your vision (on-premise, cloud or hybrid).

Rapid Migrate is a resilient on-premise deployed application which heavy-lifts digital assets off your legacy archive system while remaining laser focused on sustaining your existing production workflows. Leveraging deep-insights gathered during the analysis and modelling of your environment allows Rapid Migrate to elastically scale and contract migration resource utilization based on your sustaining production demands throughout the day minimizing operational impact. Best of all, legacy archive metadata (key to your digital transformation) is preserved throughout the migration process ensuring closed-loop integration with your important production and business systems (MAM, PAM, orchestration, digital supply chain).

With our SaaS-based approach, you only pay for the amount of data migrated off your legacy archive platform ensuring transparency on migration timeframe and costs. You can migrate at your own pace and when your migration is complete, you simply turn off Rapid Migrate. There are no unexpected expenses as our pricing model is inclusive of ongoing support, professional services and upgrades.
