2.0 Getting Started with Portability Suite

This section introduces the main features of the PlateSpin® Portability Suite products (PlateSpin® Migrate and PlateSpin® Protect) and how you use the Portability Suite Client to interact with either product.

Portability Suite Client connects to a specified Portability Suite Server (the workload portability and protection engine underlying both products of the suite) and provides access to information in the Portability Suite Server database.

Most of your interaction with the server takes place through the client, including the discovery of source workloads and targets; setting up, executing, and monitoring jobs; managing license keys; and configuring the default behavior of the server.
