PlateSpin Transformation Manager–Product Technical Info

PlateSpin® Transformation Manager is a planning, tracking, and automation tool for large-scale data center transformation projects. It features familiar project roles, progress visualization with a dashboard, and support for all workload transformation methods. Import with automatic discovery simplifies and standardizes the setup of workloads and target hosts for planning. In Automated Mode, 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 host discovery, load-balances the assignment of migration jobs to PlateSpin Migrate servers, and manages communications for the execution and monitoring of transformation plans for your VMware migration projects.
