A customer recently asked, “What’s the difference between PlateSpin Protect and PlateSpin Migrate?”
Well the difference really is in usage and use case.
While both products do share some common code, ultimately PlateSpin Migrate is designed — from a capability, workflow and UI perspective — as a migration tool. It is a best-of-breed tool that enables users to quickly and easily migrate whole server workloads to and from any underlying infrastructure.
PlateSpin Protect, on the other hand, has been designed from a capability, workflow, and UI perspective as a flexible solution for creating, replicating, and managing virtual machines used as backups for both physical and virtual production workloads.
