Windows Server Migration
Zinstall WinServ turns Windows Server migration into a straightforward, efficient and inexpensive process.
No matter where you are moving the server - from old hardware to new one, from a physical machine to a virtual one or to a cloud infrastructure - WinServ will migrate your Windows server to its destination, including all applications, data, settings, roles and configurations.
WinServ supports all Windows Servers versions, including Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2012, Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2003, 2008 and 2011, and Cloud-based Windows server implementations (Amazon, Azure and others). WinServ is hypervisor-agnostic and cloud-independent, and works across all Windows-capable platforms, including physical to physical (P2P), physical to virtual (P2V) or physical to Cloud (P2C).
The WinServ package transfers all server roles and applications, including DNS, DHCP, Domain controller, Group policy, User shares, security configurations, user shared data, login scripts and other components. WinServ is domain-aware, and will maintain domain configurations, user permissions and settings, network settings etc. Among the server roles WinServ supprots are Oracle, MS SQL, Exchange and other server components.
Zinstall WinServ can migrate between different Windows Server versions, as well as between 32bit and 64bit systems. For example, you can move from Windows 2003 Small Business Server 32bit to a Windows Server 2012 64bit.
Zinstall WinServ works using the Zinstall LEM technology (see whitepaper here). It decouples the many computing layers of your system - OS, applications, settings, data - and migrates the entire server to the new system. It transfers all server roles, all settings and all data - the complete package - with no reinstalls, and leaving nothing behind.
You do not have to invest your time in the migration - a Premium Migration session, performed remotely by Zinstall engineers, is included in the package at no additional cost. And unlike a "swing" migration, a WinServ migration is performed directly between the two servers, without any intermediaries - as a "hot swap". For mission critical deployments, weekend and off-hours migrations are available - keeping your users unaffected by the migration.Upgrading your company servers? Consolidating and virtualizing your datacenter? Moving to a Cloud infrastructure?
Zinstall WinServ will do the job.
Nothing is left behind, and all roles work on the new system - exactly as they did before. Microsoft IIS, CMS, Exchange Server, Domain Controller, SMS, SQL are all supported and transferred.
WinServ has the ability to perform a live migration (server-to-server) or deferred migration - through an intermediate capture of the source server, removing conflict issues and downtime.
Zinstall WinServ provides a complete transfer of your entire server. Once the migration is complete, the server is operational - with the environment configured just as before.
WinServ supports migrating roles such as Active Directory, DHCP, DNS, Domain Controller, Exchange, as well as third-party applications.
WinServ is a package product, and includes a migration session, performed by Zinstall server migration experts, to ensure the new server is properly configured and ready for work.
