This document describes how objects can be moved to a different COO service, and eventually copy the corresponding contents to an associated MMC store. In this case objects keep their identity; they still have the same object address, but the home store identified by an object address only holds a reference of the objects current service.
A typical use case for this feature is to keep vital data stored in specific services and stores. In this case the infrastructure and procedures can be optimized to minimize the disruption of normal business operations after an emergency.
Another use case for this feature is to move objects close to its clients, who may change over time. In this case the benefit may be better response time and less network traffic.
