WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ — Incipient, Inc., a leading provider of storage virtualization and automated data migration software, today announced the results of the Taneja Group's review of Incipient software. The report details Incipient software's impact on SAN data migration processes for enterprise environments. One of the many favorable conclusions of the report states that Incipient software reduces data migration time and effort by 89 percent when compared to manual data migrations. Additionally, the report underscores Incipient's ability to eliminate planned downtime associated with data migrations, allowing data center IT staff to maintain application up-time.

The Taneja Group report details the entire end-to-end process of a data migration operation. It provides detailed time metrics for a manual data migration process compared with an online, automated data migration process using Incipient software. The analysis provides total "man hours" for each migration phase from planning to pre-migration configuration, from the actual migration to the post-migration clean up.

In addition to the operational benefits derived from Incipient software, Taneja Group identified the following areas that offer additional savings:

— Elimination of professional services costs; — Reduction of operational costs that are incurred when old arrays remain online to support data migration long after new arrays are implemented; — Reduction in the costs created by the excessive purchase of unnecessarily high performance storage. Easy data migration enables better utilization of tiered storage than previously possible, and; — Elimination of application downtime costs created by traditional data migration.

"For many large data centers, data migration is still a manual task that puts tremendous pressure on IT resources. Data center managers are demanding data migration solutions that can handle the continuous need to move data across the network without interruption," said Arun Taneja, founder and consulting analyst, Taneja Group. "With minimal time and effort, Incipient can reduce complexity and cycle times and decrease the cost of manual data migrations. These findings can significantly and positively impact the overall cost of running a data center."

"At our recent CIO roundtable [in New York City] the discussion focused on data mobility in the next generation data center. We heard from financial services companies that one of their top priorities is maintaining high application up-time and driving down risk. These companies are global organizations servicing customers worldwide — they cannot afford any downtime," said Robert Infantino, Incipient senior vice president of Marketing and Alliances. "The Taneja Group's findings validate and reinforce what we have stated about Incipient's data migration solutions and we are delighted to publicly share the results."
