HelioStor raised to Micro Focus Premier Partner for Workload Management.

From planning and scheduling to fast migration execution, Micro Focus solutions help you complete data center transformation and migration projects quickly and efficiently with automatic, unattended high-speed Physical-to-Virtual (P2V), Virtual-to-Virtual (V2V), or anywhere-to-anywhere server migrations—even to the cloud.

Move a data center while it's still running

Mergers and acquisitions can leave you with many data centers scattered around the country or the globe. Your job is to consolidate them—different hardware, different operating systems, and different hypervisors—with maximum uptime.

Accelerate adoption of enterprise and public cloud platforms

By using the right migration tool, you can dramatically reduce the risk in your cloud migration projects. PlateSpin® Migrate gives you the confidence you need to migrate Windows and Linux servers to the cloud, rapidly, safely and easily.

Virtualize and consolidate servers quickly

Trying to achieve better consolidation ratios or reduce resource contention on your virtual hosts? Need to finish by the end of the week, not sometime next quarter? We make it fast and efficient with Platespin server migration tools.

Migrate servers to new server hardware

Whenever you get new servers you have to spend a lot of time reinstalling and reconfiguring them. We can help. We can move entire servers to the new hardware, over the network, unattended, while the original servers are still running.
