Looking for the best way to replace a v7000 with a v7000...... why ? v7000 System A is coming off lease & will be sent back to leasing company. Need to install v7000 System B and move all data from v7k A to v7k B..... about 150TB worth. Which begs the question...... what is best / easiest way to do this ?
Some obvious options:
- install v7k B along side v7k A.... and do Host Mirroring from v7k A to v7k B. (doable but very labor intensive)
- establish Remote Copy - Metro Mirror between v7k B and v7k A
- externalize the v7k A BEHIND the v7k B and have v7k B migrate the data (is this even supported ? my guess is >> no)
- buy an SVC and put both v7k A and v7k B behind the SVC & use SVC to migrate the data
Any other options worthy of consideration ?
