Just because your organization uses one vendor’s virtualization platform doesn’t mean that your organization is locked into using that platform in future. The ability to migrate virtual machines from one virtualization platform to another is as much a core systems administrator skill as the ability to perform physical to virtual migrations. Similarly, many organizations, especially those that have gone through mergers and acquisitions, are running workloads across more than one virtualization platform, moving VMs to the platform that best suits their requirements at the time.
In this session you’ll learn about:
- Challenges involved in migrating from one vendor’s virtualization platform to another
- Benefits and drawbacks of maintaining a heterogeneous virtualization platform environment
- Virtual to virtual migration best practices
- Disaster recovery technologies that can make V2V migration quick and painless
