 Customer Quote:

“Near-Line Storage (NLS) is an important component to the Business Warehouse landscape as it enabled us to store data within a lower cost “online” option.  As part of our current BI optimization initiative, it became even more critical.  The production migration was vital since our reporting relies on NLS to work.  I am happy to announce that we experienced a flawless migration with zero business disruption. 

Thank you all for your efforts in making this migration successful!”
