WDI Device Uses SUREedge® to Efficiently Migrate Workloads to the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform
SANTA CLARA, CALIFORNIA, US, July 12, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — #SurelineSystems, a leader in physical, virtual and cloud migration and disaster recovery solutions, announced today that #WDIDevice, a global provider of Digital Autofocus Sensors, based in Ontario, Canada, used the #SUREedge Migrator software to successfully migrate existing services to its newly purchased #Nutanix platform. After making the decision to move to the Nutanix enterprise cloud platform for performance reasons, WDI began moving their business-critical applications, such as #Autodesk, Jira, and Vault from a physical to virtual environment using free migration tools. However, after further analysis and initial deployment, they found the P2V tools they were using caused errors. WDI then decided to move forward with Sureline’s SUREedge®-Migrator solution based on several successful migrations completed with other Nutanix customer’s critical applications. Sureline installed SUREedge®- Migrator software remotely into the WDI environment, planned the migration requirements, and then migrated both the physical servers and virtual VM’s securely and reliably to Nutanix with AHV. Once the migration to Nutanix on AHV was complete, they were able to validate their applications were running properly. “I was impressed with the Sureline Systems team. They were very confident, efficient and knowledgeable. I was able to get my work done while they were fixing my problems. My servers are healthy now, and I spend less time managing them and more time providing service, I’m looking forward to purchasing the Sureline DR software solution as well”, said Shane Archibald, IT Administrator, WDI Device. There are many reasons why migrating business-critical applications is challenging: •Many applications are multi-tier and run on multiple servers •Often there is large data storage associated which consumes significant network bandwidth •Data continues to change as the applications are migrated •There is a very small downtime window available for cut over.
