ATAmotion 4.0 gives users the ability to migrate and auto-provision multiple enterprise, multi-tiered live workloads directly to any physical machine, cloud or hypervisor.

ATADATA stands alone in our ability to discover application dependencies and then migrate any supported OS to any SoftLayer or data center target and back again without installing agents

ATADATA - These enhancements include agentless single-stage live workload migration and auto-provisioning for IBM and SoftLayer environments. The IBM enterprise workload portability improvements include increased SoftLayer Cloud integration, as well as data center specific migration for AIX and LPAR auto-provisioning.

“We have offered significant SoftLayer integration since 2012,” said ATADATA CTO Charles Wright, “and these latest IBM platform features – auto-provisioning to Softlayer’s Private Cloud and Bare Metal – improve our position as the only holistic enterprise level workload portability suite for IBM platforms. We have established a baseline in the industry by migrating faster than anyone else with the advantage of our ‘any-to-any’ agentless architecture, source-to-target data flow, and proprietary scripting intelligence. We continue to push the envelope by constantly improving our offerings.”

ATADATA’s migration technology leads the space with the ability to migrate and auto-provision enterprise, multi-tiered live workloads directly into SoftLayer’s Private Cloud, and Bare Metal targets. This migration capability includes migrating any given supported operating system, application stack, configuration, and associated database layer synchronization. In addition to new auto-provisioning capabilities, ATAmotion allows for automated windows server OS upgrades, as part of a re-platformed migration to SoftLayer, including Windows 2003.

In addition to the new cloud features supported in SoftLayer, the same ATAmotion module allows for unique capabilities regarding automated AIX workload migrations in supported target data center or hosted environments. Regardless of the location of the source or target, ATAmotion can automate the cloning, migration and synchronization of AIX workloads across the internet, without installing software agents, or shared storage requirements wherever AIX is supported.

"The IBM enterprise market requires non-intrusive, secure, synchronized and rapid migrations into regulated, privately networked environments, as enabled through auto-provisioning.” said Ian Easton, ATDATA Chief Commercial Officer, “Given such demands, ATADATA stands alone in our ability to discover application dependencies and then migrate any supported OS to any SoftLayer or data center target and back again without installing agents."

In summary, enhancement advantages for the ATADATA IBM technology platforms include:

  • Auto-provisioned live migrations to SoftLayer VPC and Bare Metal targets
  • Integration for live auto-provisioned AIX LPAR migrations in supported targets
  • Windows upgrades in-flight, including off Windows Server 2003 (withdrawn)
  • Integrated agentless Discovery on any source subnet
  • Agentless migration engine interface for dozens of rapid workload migrations simultaneously to SoftLayer
  • Single stage “source to target” data flows. (No intermediate steps/stages)
  • Fastest migration engine available with data transfer rates at 80-100% of available pipe speed
  • Support for live migrations on all Windows Server versions 2003-2012
  • Support for live migrations on all Linux versions and derivatives
  • Synchronization at the file and database layer for live online migrations
  • Unlimited database size restrictions for cloning, migration and synchronization
