PlateSpin Migrate Server Migration Use Cases

With over 1,000,000 servers migrated PlateSpin Migrate is one of the world-leading, comprehensive migration tools.

Transform with PlateSpin Migrate

Complete data center transformation and migration projects performed quickly and efficiently with automatic, unattended high-speed Physical-to-Virtual (P2V), Virtual-to-Virtual (V2V), or anywhere-to-anywhere server migrations – even to the cloud.

Avoid Business Interruptions With Near-Zero Downtime

PlateSpin Migrate allows you to copy a physical server to a virtual host without taking the source physical server offline. You can even synchronize changes to keep the virtual copy up-to-date while the original is still live in production. This means that the longest parts of a typical migration – the initial copy and testing that copy – can both happen without any downtime at all.


Minimize Risk: Unlimited Testing Before Going Live

We let you test new workloads before they go live. And with the Server Sync technology in PlateSpin Migrate, you can even synchronize production changes that occurred during testing so you don’t have to copy the workload all over again. Your data center migration will be much less stressful because of the ability to thoroughly test before you go live.


Simultaneous Migration of Multiple Servers

We help you to dramatically reduce the time required for large-scale server consolidation projects. PlateSpin Migrate performs multiple migrations – up to 40 – concurrently, which helps you complete your server consolidation projects on time.

Automated Migration and Rebuilding Processes

We help you dramatically reduce the time required for hardware migration projects. We provide a fully automated way to migrate multiple concurrent workloads to and from a wide range of physical and virtual containers. With PlateSpin Migrate, you will not have to manually rebuild and configure new servers ever again.

A Comprehensive Approach: Move Windows, Linux and Cloud Workloads

Unlike competing offerings, PlateSpin Migrate offers complete migration support – both Linux and Microsoft Windows, as well as both virtual and cloud-based migrations. Create a single process for all your migrations, including cloud migrations, and avoid having to use several different tools, or having to rebuild workloads manually.


Migrate Servers to the Cloud

Moving to the cloud has never been easier. PlateSpin Migrate supports both Windows and Linux workloads, and makes migrations to the cloud as easy as migrations to more traditional environments like VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V. Administrators with a basic knowledge of these traditional migration types will have no problem understanding the functionality in PlateSpin Migrate that allows them to migrate workloads to cloud platforms.


Switch Server Vendors and Models With Ease

PlateSpin Migrate can move and copy workloads across a broad range of virtual machines and hypervisors, as well as across different makes and models of physical servers. By automatically adding required drivers and removing unnecessary ones, PlateSpin Migrate lets you upgrade hardware as easily as you upgrade software.


Secure the Workload Migration Process

The unique architecture of PlateSpin Migrate assigns administrator rights for the source and target workloads to PlateSpin Migrate, instead of to the human operator. This means contractors or junior staff members can be assigned to perform server migrations without having administrator privileges that could pose a risk to the migration project.
