Speed of Server and data migration


I work on data center migration project and consider using plate spin
migrate. I need to know how much time will it take to migrate typical
Windows 2008 server with attached SAN disks of 1 TB ?
Interconnection between source DC and target DC is 200 Mbit WAN link.

Re: Speed of Server and data migration


Hi Pskura,

The amount of time that any migration of a server (workload in our
terms) will take to migrate is not something we can calculate for you.
Since there are many variable we cannot account for we only suggest that
you try an Evaluation license and test for yourself in your
environment.

For example, things like if you use our WinPE 1.5 (the default) or the
second WinPE 3.0 which comes with the target physical Take Control zip
file, these can change the speed as newer drivers are available in WinPE
3.0 then in WinPE 1.5. Also your connection may have QoS or compression
or other elements like switch settings which may affect the speed you
would get.

For the most part PlateSpin Migrate does not throttle any speed of the
migration unless you configure it to do so, however the original
(source) OS has the ability to limit how much bandwidth it gives our
process, your internal network on both side and the WAN link can also
affect the speed, and there is also the speed of disk read on the source
and write on the target which can affect the speed of the transfer you
would see.

In short, grab an Eval license and try it yourself on a test system.
This is the best way to really to find out how fast you will get in your
environment.
