Simple VM Migrations

Adopting new infrastructure platforms often require organizations to migrate existing workloads against tight timelines. Nutanix Xtract simplifies this process with infrastructure-level bulk VM migrations, removing the friction associated with onboarding new infrastructure, and enabling businesses to quickly leverage the full potential of Nutanix Enterprise Cloud, with near-zero VM or application service outage during migrations.

Xtract provides granular, project based control via an easy to use UI for automated workload migrations in a simple three-step process.

Select the source

User can specify the source cluster where the VMs need to be moved from - Nutanix Xtract supports both ESX and Hyper-V* for the private cloud and AWS* for the public cloud.

Define the migration plan and seeding

Once the source VM’s have been identified and put in a migration plan. The VM’s get replicated through a efficient seeding mechanism to the target AHV cluster.

Migrate with minimal downtime

Non-disruptive replication of VMs via VMware’s VADP ensures consistent and efficient replication. Whether VMs are powered up or off, they are kept up-to-date until ready to cutover.
