Maybe this will help.

Since sandboxed solutions are deprecated in SharePoint 2013, and Microsoft is pushing SharePoint Online and the App model, many developers are finding that they must move from the server side object model to the client side object model (CSOM). With this, there are a number of challenges: many features are missing in the client object model, and many tasks that were once easy are now difficult.

Presumably as time goes on, the client object model will continue to mature and these issues will improve. However, one thing that won't change is the requirement to write efficient code: we are now, after all, talking across a network - our code is usually executing on a different machine whereas we used to be executing right there on the SharePoint server. And if your experience is anything like mine, you'll soon be spending time on improving your app latency and other performance issues.

In this article, I'll outline a number of techniques to make sure your code runs as fast as possible. My examples are written using the managed CSOM, however many (if not all) of the concepts can also be applied to the JavaScript version.

Thanks for your reply. I need to move the docset either using SPD workflow or JSOM provide me  specific solution to it.
Maybe this would work.

One out of the box feature you can try is to use "Manage Content and Structure" from Site Collection Home --> Site Actions --> Manage Content and Structure.

This will allow you to move your items with the metadata. I have not tried managed metadata and hence that is something you will have to verify. Also I am not sure about the workflow history.
I know the out of box Move feature , But I require a sharepoint designer workflow where users can start the workflow whenever they require and start to move the documentset from one library to another library .Any solution that works precisely .Thanks
