Collect Data from VirtualWisdom

If you have a VirtualWisdom account, you can automatically generate and upload data collection information from VirtualWisdom to Virtana Platform. This file is required if you are planning a migration to the cloud using Virtana's Migration module.

In VirtualWisdom, the file is generated as a JSON or ZIP file. Only a ZIP file can be exported from VirtualWisdom and directly uploaded to the selected organization in Workload Placement.

Tip

For more information about creating a data collection file in VirtualWisdom for migrating data to the cloud, see Migration Analysis in the VirtualWisdom User Guide. If you want to use custom pricing for cost calculations, follow the instructions for Adding Custom Pricing for Migration in the same guide.

About This Task

You can upload up to 3 files from VirtualWisdom to establish Virtana Platform projects. If you upload more than 3 files, an equivalent number of project files will be removed from Virtana Platform so that the number of active projects does not exceed 3.

OAuth credentials are generated for the Virtana Platform organization under which you logged in and are unique to that organization.

Prerequisites

You must have administrator privileges in both Virtana Platform and VirtualWisdom to perform this task.

Your Virtana Platform account must be configured with a supported cloud provider instance.
