Shell Migrates Archived Data to New Storage System with Zero Downtime
Energy provider Shell runs one of the biggest BW systems in the world, used for storing and reporting on commercial and financial data. While their data management practices are best in class, Shell was facing a very specific challenge. The provider of their archiving system had announced that their software would be discontinued so Shell needed to figure out how to move their archived data into a new storage system, without reloading data back into their BW system.
Migrate 270 TB of archived data directly from the discontinued NLS software to SAP IQ NLS with zero downtime
Reduce monitoring efforts, saving 2 months of work
Comply with strict deadlines
