Demo License

A Demonstration (Demo) License for 100 workloads is automatically activated when you deploy the PlateSpin Transformation Manager Appliance. The evaluation period of 6 months begins when you install the product. A workload license is consumed when you edit a workload to plan its transformation. You can configure users, projects, platforms, resources, and configuration settings without consuming a workload license.

For more information, see "Demo License" in the PTM 2 Administrator Guide.

Product Description

PlateSpin Transformation Manager is a planning, tracking, and automation solution for data center transformation projects. It features familiar project roles and progress visualization with a dashboard. Import with automatic discovery simplifies and standardizes the setup of workloads and target platforms for planning. With automated migrations, you can control the transformation workflow from import to cutover from a single point of control across large server farms of PlateSpin Migrate servers. Your team can increase project predictability, transformation speed, and success ratios, which helps reduce overall project costs and time to completion.

PlateSpin Migrate Connector supports workload and target platform discovery, load-balances the assignment of migration jobs to PlateSpin Migrate servers, and manages communications for the execution and monitoring of transformation plans.

Documentation for this release is available online in HTML and PDF formats. Visit the PlateSpin Transformation Manager 2 Documentation website.
