Integrated Testing for Safer Migrations

Test the target server while limiting downtime.

Integrate testing into server migration workflow

Only PlateSpin® Migrate recognizes the need for testing as an important key to successful migrations and includes testing in every server migration workflow. With PlateSpin Migrate, you can remove the hidden dangers of server migration.

Testing is often an overlooked aspect of a migration project. All data center infrastructure projects are expected to move at the speed of business, and migrating individual servers or even entire sites is no different.

Because of time crunches, many organizations make the dangerous decision to cut out testing in order to accelerate timelines and reduce downtime. It is critical to design your projects with solutions that recognize this challenge and integrate testing right into the process. PlateSpin Migrate meets this need with proven features such as Server Sync. With Server Sync, after an initial full server replication, the target server is kept in sync with the source server via automatically scheduled incremental replications.

Run in the background to limit downtime

Advanced features such as Server Sync and live transfer allow you to run migrations in the background without shutting down source servers. You can test the target server while running a final synchronization and cut-over to ensure up-to-date data, all while limiting downtime.

This process can even be run multiple times to remove unexpected surprises with the performance not only of individual servers, but also of the business services these servers run.

Integrated testing ensures that your projects will be completed efficiently, correctly and without unnecessary risk. Server migrations and new platform investments cannot yield any ROI unless they work correctly and as expected. PlateSpin Migrate can help you make sure your projects are successful.
