Storfirst Migration 5 is available now.

Despite repeated efforts to modernize storage infrastructure, many enterprise customers still face spiraling data growth and operational complexity caused by specialized software tools and siloed storage media. Moving data from one storage platform to another often entails conventional methods which interfere with critical business applications as they are slow, risky, expensive, and complex. Storfirst Migration 5 provides enterprise customers a graceful and fully automated data movement solution to next generation infrastructure without any traditional migration complexities.

“Managing massive data growth continues to rank as one of enterprises’ most significant challenges. For years, IT administrators have been asked to deploy complex customized solutions based on freeware or to lean on professional service experts to help transition from legacy storage to new storage platforms. The risk, cost, time, and disruption associated with these efforts compromises organizations’ abilities to effectively manage their assets on modern infrastructure” explains Bobby Moulton, Seven10’s CEO. “By all accounts, the innovation taking place at the storage layer is impressive, but the technology designed to help customers evolve is frankly embarrassing. Seven10 dedicates its entire engineering process to solving the management problems associated with new storage adoption and delivers customers a complete software solution that makes new storage adoption effortless. Storfirst Migration 5 the result of years of planning, research, and development. Seven10 has created a product that will forever change how storage is adopted and how innovation is embraced by not only the end-user, but also by the application world.”
