TechTarget: Repurpose legacy storage systems for reliability and savings
Planning to move to a new data storage platform? Before kicking your older legacy storage hardware to the curb, consider the benefits of repurposing your existing technologies.
“When moving from one storage back end to another like HDD to SSD, SSD to NVMe, or on premises to cloud, you can prevent [a] complete rip-and-replace and repurpose storage by following a few guidelines,” said Gaurav Yadav, founding engineer at Hedvig, which sells cloud data management technology. “Your storage vendor should be capable of supporting your outgoing and incoming storage device, so you can pin less demanding applications to low-end storage.”
