Product Description

PlateSpin Migration Factory brings a project-management approach to large-scale cloud and data-center migrations. PlateSpin Transformation Manager and PlateSpin Migrate work together to provide discovery, planning, execution, and visualization of migrations for enterprise-grade servers.

PlateSpin Transformation Manager provides planning, tracking, and automation solutions for PlateSpin Migration Factory. 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, a component of PTM, is deployed in your migration environment to support workload and target platform discovery, to load-balance the assignment of migration jobs across its participating PlateSpin Migrate servers, and to manage 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 2019.5 Documentation website.
