Fortune 50 Insurance Company

Cisco is pleased to announce a Cisco ® MDS 9000 Family data migration win using Cisco Data Mobility Manager (DMM) at a very large Fortune 50 insurance company (Figure 1). Dan Williams, Cisco consulting systems engineer, said this about the product use: "The customer found great value in streamlining their migrations from old disk subsystems to new ones, using DMM. DMM accelerated customer's move to HDS's new USP virtualized disk platform and decreased the load on the SAN team by simplifying and accelerating the migration. DMM migrated hosts 10 times faster than the server-based migration tools they had been using. Since DMM is a SAN-based tool, coordination with the server team was minimized, which saved considerable time and effort."

Large Insurance Company Based in USA

Cisco is pleased to announce a Cisco MDS 9000 Family data migration win using Cisco DMM at a large insurance company based in the United States (Figure 3). Carl Radom, Consulting Systems Engineer, had the following to say about the product use: "DMM is a perfect fit for customer's heterogeneous storage and server environment. They pushed the tool perhaps in ways it was never intended because of unique SAN configurations or business needs; however, DMM responded every step of the way. DMM is a tool now positioned solidly within customer's operational storage model, and our partnership has given them confidence that service-oriented SANs are indeed possible and the right way to go."
