Zinstall allows IT teams to automate migrations and recoveries.

Turn migrations from tedious busywork into efficient, predictable jobs –
and deliver consistently incredible results to your users.

IT teams use Zinstall software to automate PC and Server migrations. Not just files; Zinstall migrates applications (even custom or in-house), settings, profiles, personalization, shares, permissions – and, of course, all data.

This also includes all those little things that make the end-user feel at home: emails, accounts, favorites, passwords, personalization tweaks, shortcuts, icons on the desktop.

You can migrate across different Windows versions, different hardware, 32bit to 64bit, different platforms (physical to physical, on-prem to Cloud, one Cloud vendor to another and so on).

Among Our Customers

“Zinstall is the only tool that could cover, with a consistently high standard of quality, all the migrations options we were looking for: network transfers, docked drives, failing systems, new workstation provisioning, backup.”

Timothy Moore | Founder and CEO, Razelle

How do IT teams use Zinstall?

Server Migration

Cross-OS migration (such as 2008 or 2012 - to 2019), migration to new server hardware, on-prem to Cloud (migrating the entire application stack, not just common apps), or even Cloud-to-Cloud Server migrations (breaking out of vendor lock-in).

Azure AD

One-step migration from on-prem profiles (local or domain) to Azure AD profiles - keeping user accounts, personalization, and all files. Both in-place (same PC) and PC-to-PC.

Dead machines

Automatic recovery of applications, settings, accounts and files directly from an old drive -even if the original machine won't boot and even if the drive has bad sectors (as long as it still has the data, of course).

PC Migration

New PC provisioning while keeping the entire user environment intact, migration from old end-points to new hardware, wipe-and-reinstall without losing programs and files.

New domain

Migrating from one domain to another, while keeping user accounts, personalization, and all files. Both in-place (same PC) and PC-to-PC.

Cloud onboarding

Migration of on-prem workstations and servers (physical or virtual) to their Cloud-hosted counterparts - even if Cloud-hosted templates have a different OS version or other limitations.

“We are totally happy with Zinstall results, and are impressed with the way it goes about migrating applications – even on obscure legacy servers. By our estimate, this is saving us from dozens to hundreds of hours per server.”

Robert “Rocky” Livingston | CIO and SVP of Operations, USAN

PC Migration - Intro Video

Not just faster. Better.

Saving time is not the only thing Zinstall is used for. It also allows you to do migrations and recoveries that are not feasible or just plain impossible to do manually.

Got a line of business server with 20 different interconnected apps that no one even remembers how to install? Zinstall is automatic, so migrating that entire stack takes the same amount of effort as migrating a single app.

Replacing user laptops with new ones? Zinstall will deliver a seamless migration, even for BYOC or remote devices.

Switching users to Azure AD? Don’t just manually their documents and pictures; use Zinstall to recover everything, including applications, profiles and settings.

Trying to get a client to switch from on-prem to Cloud? Close the deal by showing them that transition will be quick and their Cloud-hosted systems will be just like the on-prem ones.
