Build confidence before doing final migration or cutover

Test migrations help to configure IT workloads settings (CPU, RAM etc.) and build confidence in a migration process before performing the final migration and switching from source platform to Alibaba Cloud. Hystax Acura Live Migration provides an ability to do any number of tests for migrated workloads.

Run a set of functional and performance tests and, only when you are 100% confident in result, do a final migration or cutover that happens without any data loss and in a controlled manner with a small maintenance window.

As soon as full replicas are on Alibaba Cloud, Hystax Acura Live Migration can run unlimited number of test migrations which do not prevent production workloads to operate in a usual manner and Hystax to take incremental replicas preparing for final cutover.
