Release Highlights

Target Match

Target Match is now available in the UI and provides the additional option for migrations to scan both source and target to not only add but also remove any extraneous files. Data Migrator provides migration capabilities and utilization of filesystem events to ensure changes made on source are also made on target. However, situations can occur such as network failures, maintenance periods, unexpected changes, or even lack of confidence in the consistency of data. With Target Match, discrepancies (i.e. extra files or missing files) by such events will be resolved alongside the migration to ensure the source and target are 100% identical. More information can be found here.

Live Catalog

This release is also introducing Live Catalog. This feature extends Data Migrator’s metadata functionality by providing additional flexibility in managing metadata migration rules. Previously, rules that define what metadata is migrated can only be created when creating a metadata migration. With Live Catalog, the definition of what metadata is migrated can now be created separately. This allows the association of the definitions or "rules" for the metadata migration to be better managed by the user. More information can be found here.

Other Improvements

Recurring Migration for ADLS Gen2 Source

For ADLS Gen2 sources, users now have the additional migration type "Recurring". This can be used similar to One-time migrations, when there is no event feed for the source Gen2 storage. Existing data on the source will be moved to the target, then the migration scan will be repeated to discover and migrate new changes after a user defined set of time.

License Usage Metrics

Updates and new metrics in the usage to reflect data migration have been made in this release. The UI will now display the lifetime usage of the data migrations.

UI Updates

In this release a variety of UI updates have been made to improve the consistency of Cirata branding and experience. This includes some updates in the page layouts, icons, and language.
