Tech Specs

Overview

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

Automated migration enables you to 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.

PlateSpin Transformation Manager can track the status of manual migrations you perform using your PlateSpin Migrate servers for workloads imported to PTM. You can view project progress and transformation history across multiple Migrate servers.
