Live transfer

Use live transfer for the migration or image capture of active servers without taking the source servers offline or having to reboot.

Fast incremental replication

Reduce the risks associated with server migration projects. First, perform an initial full replication to the target site or host, and then test the server workloads in the new location while continuing to run the source in production. PlateSpin Migrate automatically keeps the target updated via automatic scheduled incremental replications. You can perform a final and quick incremental replication before cutting over the server.

Role-based access

PlateSpin Migrate includes a range of security features. User authentication, authorization, and logging let you manage and monitor user activities. This also lets you grant access rights to the users who really need them.

Migration speed and scalability

PlateSpin Migrate enables up to 40 simultaneous server migrations. This dramatically reduces the time required to complete cloud and data center migration projects.

Broad support for platforms, operating systems, and hardware configurations
