10.0 Synchronizing Workloads with Server Sync

The Server Sync feature enables you to reduce the scope of data that is transferred from your source to your target to just data that is different between a source and a target, effectively synchronizing their volume contents.

For example, when setting up a job for a workload migration operation, you can choose to update an existing physical or virtual machine to match the state of your source workload without transferring volume data in its entirety. PlateSpin Migrate compares the target physical or virtual workload with the selected source and transfers only data that is different between the two, overwriting files on the target with those on the source workload.

Server Sync is useful in situations where the size of volume data or network conditions are prohibitive for a direct source-to-target virtualization over the network.
