Case Study<br />The Solution<br />Looked at VMware Converter initially – no P2P, V2P<br />PlateSpin Recon to monitor the existing estate for new hardware planning and consolidation<br />PlateSpin Migrate for 260 migrations (P2P and P2V) across sites<br />New Site<br />
Case Study<br />“If we hadn’t gone with PlateSpin, it would have taken a team of 25 half a year to build all the applications in the new data center, an estimated cost of over EUR 3 million. <br />With PlateSpin, we were able to migrate all of our servers in one month with a team of less than eight people. <br />The PlateSpin solution brings a high return of investment. In retrospect, after seeing the time and cost savings, we would have been willing to pay a lot more for the PlateSpin solution.” <br />Marco Spoel, Project Manager, IT Infrastructure, Essent<br />
