Red Hat Migration Toolkit for Virtualization Makes Cloud-Native Migration an Achievable Reality
Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, announced today the general availability of Red Hat’s migration toolkit for virtualization, which will assist organizations in accelerating available hybrid cloud strategies by making it easier to migrate existing workloads to modern infrastructure in a streamlined, wholesale manner. IT companies may have a faster, more scalable modernization experience while minimizing possible risks and downtime by bringing mission-critical applications based on virtual machines (VMs) to Red Hat OpenShift.

As more companies start containers and cloud-native technologies, IT teams are being challenged with handling old systems and workloads, many of which may be running on infrastructure or resources incompatible with current computing realities. Without the proper tools, modernizing these deployments may be time-consuming, costly, and overwhelming for developers, IT operations teams, and business users.

Red Hat introduced OpenShift Virtualization in 2020 to assist companies in breaking down application barriers between traditional and cloud-native workloads. Red Hat advanced traditional application stacks into a layer of open innovation with OpenShift Virtualization, allowing clients to transform at their own pace truly.

As this trend continues, Red Hat collaborates with customers and partners to modernize and move projects to offer cloud-native capabilities via migration toolkits included with OpenShift. These services now feature Red Hat’s migration toolbox for virtualization, which helps convert VMs at scale to Red Hat OpenShift. This enables companies to access virtualized workloads while creating new cloud-native applications more easily. Migrations are carried out in a few easy steps, beginning with the provision of source and destination credentials, followed by mapping the source and destination infrastructure and creating a choreographed plan, and lastly, by the execution of the plan.
