A new IBM large-capacity portable storage device has been introduced with the goal of slashing the time and cost usually associated with mass cloud migration, with enhanced security.
The device offers a vast 120 TB usable capacity, and it is equipped with sturdy AES 256-bit encryption, intended to provide confidence during the major transition.
With this device, IBM said in a blog post on the introduction, customers will be able to migrate the 120 TB usable capacity in as little as seven days, a massive reduction from the weeks and months commonly required to complete the cloud migration process.
The IBM blog post on the introduction said: “IBM Cloud Mass Data Migration is an efficient option for any organization looking to transfer tens to hundreds of terabytes of data or more to the cloud. It can help companies free up on-premises storage, implement a backup and recovery plan, create an active archive or media repository, or take advantage of a range of services including database and analytics solutions offered in the IBM Cloud to extract deeper value from their data.”
