Title: Data Movement Categories

Abstract

We have endeavored to classify the commonly seen data movement needs, as observed in data-intensive institutions (both commercial and non-profit), into four categories. Knowing how to map a data movement task into one of the four categories, helps select proper data mover tools. For each category, how the data storage is involved, high-level examples and the nature of typical solutions are described. Finally, some general remarks are provided to help further orient readers new to this field - the 4th IT pillar.
