Powerstore Storage Import from X1 array -Data transfer rate calculation.

Hello All,

Please help me with this.

We are trying to do an agentless migration on Powerstore to transfer data from XIO. There are two volume groups with sizes of 80 TB and 150 TB. The host is connected to Powerstore with two ports from each Fabric with 8GB bandwidth per port on Cisco Nexus switches. The same Powerstore frontend ports will be zoned with the source storage array XtremIO. The customer wants to know the estimated duration for copying data (transfer rate ) from XtremIO to the Powerstore. We are migrating one Application (Volume Group) at a time.


I know we can not get an accurate number, but I appreciate showing some light on this question.

Hello Pradeep,

It is hard to calculate the time it will take as there are many factors that account for when doing the migration.  In most cases when doing an import if the system is new with no data on it currently, then import is usually faster.  When performing a import, in most cases it can consume a max of 30% of resources that are available.
