19.0 Overview of Workloads

Workloads are the cloud, physical, or virtual machines that you want to transform from their current mode of operation to a future mode of operation. You can use a single import or bulk import method to add information about a project’s original workloads to the transformation database. You can modify the original workload information by re-importing the machine information.

NOTE:If you use PlateSpin Migrate Connector and PlateSpin Migrate servers for a project, a successful import triggers an automated discovery process that adds more information about each of the imported source workloads.

On import of an original workload, PlateSpin Transformation Manager automatically creates a matching proposed workload based on the original configuration. You can use individual edit and bulk edit to customize the proposed workload.
