File System migrations can be a giant pain, especially when the data is subject to compliances. DTS developed Shadow FS to make NAS migration simple and fast.

The life cycle of an organization's data will most likely out live the infrastructure that hosts it. In the current regulatory environment, the types of data subject to complianceare increasing rapidly and the retention duration is extending. As a consequence, managing "regulated" fixed content is a growing problem and it is taking a bigger byte out of IT budgets.
Refreshing storage systems and transitioning data from the legacy storage system to a new one is becoming increasingly complex due to compliance and governance requirements. Not only does the data, meta-data, permissions, ACLS and retention information have to be physically moved, but it must be done in a manner that allows the organization to prove the data was not changed or tampered with during the transition. Shadow FS provides an exact mirror of files on a new target, verification of every migrated file and chain-of-custody reports, but this is not what makes the software so special.
Shadow FS enables migration of files in a transparent and compliant manner without any resynchronization between the legacy and new storage systems - this happens dynamically. It avoids the classical problem of slow file system trolling to get started or lenghty cut-overs to close out projects.
Transitioning retention from one system to another should not be an event, rather the software should automatically adjust and update the new system. File system migrations in compliant environments will become routine and the process needs to be efficient and effective rather than a dreaded IT assignment. This is why DTS developed Shadow FS.
