Tech Specs


PlateSpin Transformation Manager is a planning, tracking, and automation tool for large-scale data center transformation projects. It features familiar project roles, progress visualization with a dashboard, and support for all workload transformation methods. Import with automated discovery simplifies and standardizes the setup of workloads and target hosts for planning.

For workloads in Automated Mode, you can plan, execute, and monitor the transformation workflow from import to cutover from a single point of control across large server farms of PlateSpin Migrate servers. Your team can increase project predictability, transformation speed, and success ratios, which helps reduce overall project costs and time to completion.

For workloads in Planning Mode, you can plan and track their external migrations. You can receive state event changes for matching migrations that you execute on PlateSpin Migrate Servers.

PlateSpin Migrate Connector supports workload and host discovery, load-balances the assignment of migration jobs to PlateSpin Migrate servers, and manages communications for the execution and monitoring of transformation plans for your VMware migration projects.
