Data migration is transferring data from one system to another, from an old PC to a new PC or from one storage device to another. Typically, data migration occurs during an upgrade of existing hardware or transferring to a completely new system. Examples include migration to or from the hardware platform, upgrading a database, or migrating to new software.
