Data Services Migration using ECC
We are looking for options of migrating from SAP R/3 from 1 ECC system to another ECC system.
Both these ECC system were on different version ECC 4.7 and ECC 6.0 .
Is it possible through SAP Data Services ?

I'm afraid I've never had to deal with "huge" data volumes. For a full material load at one of my clients, we've got around 60K materials to send in, and the whole process takes under an hour or so, where the "whole process" is as follows:
1) Stage source ECC tables (we're doing an SAP-to-SAP import in this case) related to the material object -- MARA, MARC, MARD, etc.
2) Run the (complex) ETL to create the tables that feed the BPDM "map" dataflows.
3) Run the BPDM job: map > validate > enrich > iDoc import into ECC
4) Process the iDocs (in ECC)
There's nothing particularly special about the DS job server -- 64-bit Windows w/ a couple Xeon's @ 2.7Ghz, 8G memory. Not really sure about the hardware on the target system, but we send records into lots of different clients and it always seems to run fairly fast. Where, exactly, are you seeing the performance problems?
