Data Migration

Data Migration

Data migration is the process of extracting, transforming, and loading (ETL) the data from the sources/storage systems to other destinations/storage systems. We can change the type of storage systems and format of the data. We can migrate data from on-premises to on-premises, from on-premises to cloud, from cloud to cloud, from cloud to on-premises, or hybrid infrastructure.
