“Not only was our migration less expensive with Source Data Products, it was the easiest migration in my IT career."
"What really made the difference was the approach that Source Data takes to migrate the system. We gave them a complete backup and they did all the work offsite. Our production continued to operate and we tested our new system remotely until we were ready to bring it onsite."
“My Migration From Our 9406-820 To Our New POWER i Took Less Than 4 Hours”
“I gave a complete copy of my system to Source Data. At their tech center, Source Data upgraded it from V5R2 to V5R4 and loaded it on our new POWER i. When our new POWER server arrived onsite, our migration from our 9406-820 to our new server took less than 4 hours.”
“The actual onsite conversion was simple and short.”
“The SDP preloaded 8202 migration really saved us a lot of time and went smoothly.”
“We Were Back Up In 2 Hours.”
“Your tech Mark took the drives out of our test POWER 5 server with our complete system upgraded to V7R1 and swapped them in our production 9406-520. He then restored the data from our backup done the night before. We were back up after 2 hours. Very, very, very cool.”

“What I really liked is after we ordered the IBM Power I server, it shipped to SDP’s Data Center where their techs preloaded my system. So when my server came on site, we had everything set up in about 4 hours on a Sunday. This is a really big deal!”
“So we had the entire thing restored, all the objects converted and the permissions set up in less than 3 hours."
"As far as upgrades have gone, this has been pretty nice. I think this is the smoothest one we’ve done”
“I shipped a copy of my system to Source Data to upgrade my environment to V7R1, preload my new POWER server and have it ready for testing. The whole process was very smooth. Overall, Source Data did a great job and was always very accommodating to my busy schedule”

“Working with Source Data on our OS400 was hassle-free – really easy. We got a seamless migration and smooth go live.”
“There Was No Downtime.”
“Your IBM i expert Matt said your High Availability solution could replicate our Retalix system from our 9406-800 on V5R3 to our new POWER i with V5R4 without the need for a complete backup or downtime. This way, we just role-swapped production from the 9406-800 to the POWER i. There was no downtime. We saved 20 hours.”
