PlateSpin Migrate uses the VMware vCloud Director for migrating workloads to VMware vCloud. For a list of supported workloads, see Supported Workloads For Migration to VMware vCloud Director.
Set up the vCloud Organization with at least the minimum required set of resources. See Section 10.3, Setting up vCloud Organization.
PlateSpin requires a replication environment to migrate workloads to a vCloud Organization. The replication environment is a virtual appliance based on a SLES operating system and contains all the required PlateSpin tools. It also contains a OVF PlateSpin Package that you must upload to the vCloud organization before you migrate workloads to a vCloud Organization. See Section 10.4, Understanding PlateSpin Replication Environment Used for Migration of Workloads to vCloud.
Migration of workloads with multiple NICs to vCloud is supported for Windows workloads up to the number of NICs supported by the VMware vcloud Director.
NOTE:When you configure migration for a workload, PlateSpin Migrate lets you specify four IP addresses per NIC on the Windows workload by default. However, you can configure the number of IP addresses that you want to specify per NIC on the workload. See Section 5.7, Configuring Multiple IP Addresses for the Network Interface on Windows Workloads.
