Preparing for Migration

Prior to processing data in the Virtana Platform Migrate module, data must be collected by VirtualWisdom. You should receive a Zip archive file to upload to the Migrate module for discovery.

The archive file incorporates information about a user-defined set of compute instances and applications. The file will include information such as VMware inventory and metrics, NetFlow conversations, applications from the CMDB, among other data.

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.
