PlateSpin® Migrate is part of the PlateSpin® Portability Suite (formerly PlateSpin PowerConvert) and specializes in helping IT staff to relocate a workload—an operating system along with its applications and data—from one physical or virtual infrastructure to another, and to reconfigure the relocated workload to operate on the new infrastructure.
For example, you can migrate a workload:
From a virtual machine infrastructure to a target physical (bare metal) Dell PowerEdge* server. This is known as a virtual-to-physical (V2P) migration.
From a Dell PowerEdge server to a virtual machine infrastructure. This is known as a physical-to-virtual (P2V) migration.
From one Dell PowerEdge server to another. This is known as a physical-to-physical (P2P) migration.
Workload portability capabilities and features of PlateSpin® Migrate depend on your specific license.
