Product Description

PlateSpin Migrate enables you to migrate heterogeneous workloads across x86-based physical, virtual, image, and cloud infrastructures in your data center. It decouples the workload infrastructure from its software (operating system, applications, and data) to allow any-to-any migrations. Migrate provides tools to easily discover workloads and hosts in your environment. You can efficiently configure, execute, and test workload even before the actual cutover, and also monitor the status of workload migration.

PlateSpin Migrate 12.2 introduces support for migration of workloads to VMware vCloud Director and Amazon Web Services (AWS). It also enhances the support for migration of workloads to Azure Cloud.

PlateSpin Migrate 12.2 supports automated migrations to VMware targets using PlateSpin Transformation Manager 1.1 and PlateSpin Migrate Connector.

This release is supported by a Web-based documentation set. You can view the product documentation online or download individual PDF files according to your information needs. Visit the PlateSpin Migrate 12.2 Documentation website.

File Description

Filename Usage
PhysicalTarget-12.2.zip Contains the compressed file bootofx.x2p.iso, which is used to boot BIOS or UEFI firmware-based physical targets during a semi-automated migrations and semi-automatic Server Sync operation. The semi-automatic migration is used to transfer the workload to a physical machine that has been registered in PlateSpin Migrate. This registration occurs when you boot the target physical machine with the PlateSpin Migrate boot ISO image and register with the PlateSpin Server by following the prompts.

PlateSpinMigrateSetup-12.2.0.xxx.exe  

(where xxx denotes the number of the build that is available for download. For example, PlateSpinMigrateSetup-12.2.0.260.exe installs PlateSpin Migrate version 12.2, build number 260.)
Use this PlateSpin Migrate setup executable to install the product. The program checks your system for the necessary prerequisites and interactively installs the required software components.
VolumeManager.exe  

Use to change the local volume serial numbers to match on each node of the Windows cluster that you want to migrate. See "Synchronizing Serial Numbers on Cluster Node Local Storage" in the PlateSpin Migrate User Guide.
PlateSpinReplicationEnvironment.ZIP
