Virtualizing Workloads: There Has to Be a Better Way
Discover top features of workload portability that uou can take advantage of

The need for moving, provisioning and migrating workloads in real-time for server and storage consolidation is necessary to help IT organizations deploy more efficient and flexible technology, as well as consolidate other site locations for centralized facility management. Many organizations have been reluctant to embrace migration projects because of downtime and interruption to production systems. This is no longer the case as the workload portability solution moves active workloads, eliminating downtime while keeping the data consistent – helping you avoid the challenges associated with the migration paradigm. Workload portability solutions also provide X2X migration regardless of distance or physical or virtual platform, facilitating an easier way to consolidate more flexible and dynamic data center infrastructure.

Top Features of Workload Portability

  • No Time for Migration Downtime? No Problem: With Double-Take behind your migrations, users always have access to data and applications so there’s little or no downtime.
  • Efficient, Flexible Datacenter Consolidation: By using WAN-friendly, real-time data replication to move workloads, migrating from Los Angeles to Chicago is as easy as migrating between servers in the same location.
  • Simple Storage Migration: Double-Take simplifies server and storage migration for administrators and works on any Windows or Linux® server, regardless of the underlying server hardware or storage architecture.
  • P2P or V2P Migrations: Operating systems, applications and data can be easily moved from one make, model and server configuration to another.
  • P2V or V2V Migrations: you can migrate physical or virtual servers directly into VMware® .vmdk files or Microsoft® Hyper-V™ .vhd files, all in real-time and seamlessly move between virtual platforms.

As organizations look for ways to reduce costs they are increasing looking for a single vendor solution that provides the maximum flexibility to enhance existing data center infrastructure and more than just the ability to move physical to virtual machines. The Rip-and-Replace hardware vendor locked solutions are no longer acceptable. The need for moving workloads across multiple physical or virtual platforms in real-time is required not only to consolidate the infrastructure but also for a more efficient method of managing the existing workload environment. No matter if it is server consolidation, storage or desktop consolidation, a centralized management solution to move, provision and rapidly deploy without interrupting production operations is required.
