Features and benefits
Move data fast
Using a single IBM Cloud Mass Data Migration device, you can migrate up to 120 TB of data (at RAID-6) in just days, as opposed to weeks or months using traditional data-transfer methods.
Flexible and scalable
Whether you need to migrate a few terabytes or many petabytes of data, you have the flexibility to request one or multiple devices to accommodate your workload.
Moving large data sets can be expensive and time-consuming. For a limited time, enjoy IBM Cloud Mass Data Migration free of charge.
IBM sends you a preconfigured device for you to simply connect, ingest data and then ship back to IBM for offload into IBM Cloud Object Storage. Once offloaded, enjoy immediate access to your data in the cloud while IBM securely wipes the device.
Device design helps optimize security from the inside out. Trusted Platform Module (TPM), inline AES 256-bit encryption and RAID 6 configuration coupled with ruggedized waterproof and shockproof cases promote tamper-resistant data protection and integrity during device handling and transport.
IBM uses NIST data wipe standards to ensure complete erasure of all customer data from IBM Cloud Mass Data Migration devices.
Migrating data to the cloud
Whether you want to free up on-premises storage space, archive inactive data, or back up data for redundancy and recovery, IBM Cloud Mass Data Migration can quickly and securely move your data to the cloud.
At this time, IBM Cloud Mass Data Migration only offloads data to IBM Cloud Object Storage. View our documentation on moving data from IBM Cloud Object Storage to other IBM Cloud destinations.
Data center decommission
Jump-start your data center transformation and use IBM Cloud Mass Data Migration to securely move your sensitive data to the cloud as you downsize, expand or relocate your data center.
IBM Cloud Mass Data Migration is a great alternative if you are in a remote location or find over-the-network options to be cost-prohibitive, too slow, or unavailable for your data transfer.
Cloud storage and data migration options
IBM Cloud Object Storage is a web-scale data storage service that is highly secure, cost-effective and resilient, ensuring continuous access to your data.
Flash-backed, durable, fast and flexible NFS-based file storage with customizable IOPs and predictable billing.
