MultiStore enables you to migrate data from one storage system to another without extensive reconfiguration on the destination storage system. Migration moves a specified vFiler unit from a remote storage system to a local one. Migration is initiated on the destination storage system that hosts the vFiler unit after the migration.
Migrating data across storage systems enables you to manage the workload efficiently. Migration automatically destroys the source vFiler unit and activates the destination vFiler unit. The destination then starts serving data to its clients automatically. Only the vFiler unit configuration is destroyed on the source, not the data contained in the vFiler unit.
When performing offline migration, static route entry can be added, if required, because static routing information is not carried to the destination storage system.
You can add static route entry, if required, because static routing information is not carried to the destination storage system.
However, when performing online migration, static routing information is carried to the destination storage system.
MultiStore supports both online migration and offline migration. Offline migration is the default method of migration.
