Red Hat has announced the general availability of Red Hat’s migration toolkit for virtualization to help organizations accelerate open hybrid cloud strategies by making it easier to migrate existing workloads to modern infrastructure in a streamlined, wholesale manner.
By bringing applications based on virtual machines (VMs) to Red Hat OpenShift, IT organizations can experience a smoother, more scalable modernization experience while mitigating potential risks and downtime.
With Red Hat’s migration toolkit for virtualization, organizations will benefit from a migration plan with new on-premise migration analytics capabilities that help find potential migration issues before executing. When selecting VMs to migrate, the migration toolkit for virtualization will automatically highlight any potential issues and provide information on how to solve them when possible.
VMs can then be filtered down by names, folders or other parameters to review all VMs related to specific applications. Once VMs are selected, organizations may launch their automated migration – letting Red Hat do the work.
The migration toolkit for virtualization adds to Red Hat’s existing toolkits. These include Migration toolkit for applications which offers an assembly of open source tools for large-scale application modernization and migration; and Migration toolkit for containers which migrates stateful and stateless applications from a source cluster to a target cluster.
