VMWare (Hypervisor)  Migration


Migrate ESXI to an Alternative Hyper-V, Proxmox, XCP-NG

With the acquisition of VMWare by Broadcom, customers are seeing significant increases in costs to run VMWare. The elimination of Academic discounts, as well as the push toward a subscription model, are the main culprits.

One solution is to migrate VMWare vSphere (ESXi) workloads to an alternative hypervisor (virtualization) platform. Storage Networks has experience migrating workloads to Microsoft Hyper-V, Proxmox, XCP-NG, Oracle Virtualization Manager, and other KVM variations. Our experience will help minimize disruption of storage, VM, and network migration. In most cases, no new hardware will be needed. Services can be provided remotely as well as on-site. 

A short term solution is third party support. Your expiring VMWare Support agreement will allow you to access patches for the current ESXi revision (7.X or 8.X) for several more years. Storage Networks can provide the proactive and reactive support you may need to keep your environment running. 

Contact us today for a free consultation. We recognize this might be a long-term project and are happy to share some strategies and budgeting information to help you plan the conversion to HyperV, XCP-NG, Proxmox, or another platform.
