Abstract: This presentation discusses data migration techniques and methods using AIX Logical Volume Manager (LVM) to move data volumes between IBM storage subsystems concurrently. Data migration is no longer confined to annual refreshes or data center moves; it has become an everyday task. We will explore migration triggers, key decision factors and planning, project plans, and commands and scripts that Power Systems administrators can use to move data seamlessly and avoid issues and risks.
