Minimize downtime with live server migrations
To avoid costly downtime for each workload being migrated, switching from the physical servers to virtual machines is often scheduled during evenings or weekends. This can significantly lengthen the overall project timeline. It also makes projects more expensive if a lot of evening or weekend overtime is required. What’s worse, the migration project will often delay other projects that can’t proceed while the staff is busy.
PlateSpin Migrate allows you to copy a physical server to a virtual host without taking the source physical server offline. You can even synchronize changes to keep the virtual copy up–to–date while the original is still live in production. This means that the longest parts of a typical migration—the initial copy, and testing the copy—can both happen without any downtime at all.
