Vizioncore Inc. Debuts esxMigrator

Quoting press release:

Vizioncore Inc., a leader in backup, restoration, and disaster recovery tools for VMware ESX Server, today announced the release of esxMigrator, a Windows(R)-based GUI-driven management tool that automates migration from VMware ESX Server 2.5 to VMware Infrastructure 3. esxMigrator can save companies many hours of manual work and avoidable downtime in the migration effort.

VMware Infrastructure 3 offers many new features that enhance the enterprise deployment of server virtualization. esxMigrator provides a powerful tool that can assist and automate the VMware Infrastructure 3 migration process for customers with existing production scale ESX Server 2.5 installations. esxMigrator allows multiple VMs to be migrated simultaneously. Both source and destination VMs stay intact during the migration process to support a roll-back, contingency plan in case of migration failure. End users can have access to applications right up to the point where the destination VM must be rebooted, which can take as little as 60 seconds. A built-in scheduling option allows administrators to control timing of reboots for minimal disruption to business operations. Because esxMigrator is a GUI-based management tool and eliminates scripting, it can be used by any level IT administrator to achieve consistent, predictable results.

"Today, virtual machines power many business-critical and mission-critical applications. Some companies already run hundreds of virtual machines to support all their applications. This means that any downtime can have a direct affect on a company's ability to conduct business and therefore, their bottom-line," said Azeem Mohamed, senior director of marketing at Vizioncore Inc. "We designed esxMigrator(R) to streamline migrations and ensure that virtual machines are upgraded with their integrity intact, while minimizing impact to the business."

"As an ecosystem partner for the VMware Infrastructure platform, Vizioncore delivers valuable toolsets for VMware Infrastructure that allows users to more easily accomplish their objectives for their virtualized applications and servers", said Karthik Rau, senior director of infrastructure products and solutions at VMware. "esxMigrator stands to accelerate and automate the task of migration in order to help our mutual customers to realize the ground-breaking capabilities of VMware Infrastructure 3, the industry-leading, third-generation infrastructure virtualization software suite."

esxMigrator is the latest offering from Vizioncore Inc., a leading provider of industry proven software tools to enhance VMware Infrastructure capabilities. Vizioncore's products include esxCharter, esxRanger Professional, esxReplicator, and now, esxMigrator, which are designed to allow companies to efficiently manage, monitor, migrate and backup their VM environments to take them to the next level of usage.
