Zinstall Migration Suite
Zinstall Migration Suite allows you to perform a complete and efficient corporate-wide migration of end-user workstations to new hardware and/or to new OS. Using the Suite, IT staff can save 2-4 hours per each user migrated, which quickly translates in significant cost savings. In addition, using the Suite minimizes user frustration and rejection risk, and eliminates the "migration shock".
The Suite can be used for corporate-wide, concurrent migrations - and fully supports domain controllers, active directories, permissions and policies. The entire migration process can be performed remotely.
For each user, the Suite preserves all applications, settings, files and user personalization, so that the user's environment stays exactly the same. All IT tools remain operational as well after the migration, as well as domain settings, permissions and policies. The Suite supports all Windows versions (XP, Vista, 7), editions (from Home to Ultimate), 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
Among the migration modes enabled by Zinstall Migration Suite:
1. PC refresh and XP to Windows 7 Migration
Every 3-4 years, the workstations have to be refreshed with newer models. The user environment, however, has to be preserved and deployed on the new hardware. With ZMS, you can save 2-4 hours per each workstation deployed, and minimize user downtime, frustration and support calls.
In this case, the Suite performs a native migration - which means that the end result is one unified environment, with all transferred applications and personalization implanted into the target system and with no virtualization involved.
See Zinstall WinWin for stand-alone capability.
2. Keeping incompatible XP applications running on Windows 7
In addition to the benefits mentioned in PC refresh, a unique benefit here is solving application incompatibility. In an enterprise environment, 15-50% of all XP applications are incompatible with Windows 7, and have to be re-build or replaced, incurring significant cost and time investment. The Suite keeps all legacy and custom software fully operational, using Zinstall Virtualization technology, and allows the business to go on working.
See Zinstall XP7 for stand-alone capability.
3. Migration to virtualized environment
Businesses that look into deploying a virtual desktops solution, face the same problem - how to transfer existing users to the new environment while preserving their workspaces? Breaking the user's experience after the transfer also leads to dissatisfaction, and ultimately rejection of the solution in many cases.
Zinstall Migration Suite solves the issue by transferring all user environments, with all applications, settings and files, from the existing physical workstations to any centralized infrastructure (Citrix, VMWare, Zirtu or any other vendor).
See Cloud Migration for stand-alone capability.
Zinstall Migration Suite is made for IT - providing a versatile, manageable and resilient solution for all corporate migrations needs. The Suite decreases migration and deployment times, and dramatically reduces the TCO - while increasing user satisfaction, eliminating support calls and end-point visits.
