Great tool for one-to-one migration, but not suitable for multi-cloud migration

What is our primary use case?

Technically, we use this product in regards to cloud data infrastructure migration; however, these are all things that are driven by the customer. If they are interested in a solution, we make suggestions and provide recommendations. When it comes to cloud data infrastructure challenges, mostly we are attempting to achieve cloud migration from an infra point of view. That's where tools like Carbonite Migrate and RiverMeadow come in handy. We use Carbonite Migrate to migrate our customer's data. The migration of data refers to application data and application infrastructure resources — how many… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Carbonite Migrate is helpful on an infrastructure level."
  • "We find it very difficult to use these tools in a multi-cloud environment"

What other advice do I have?

Overall, out of 10, I would rate Carbonite Migrate a seven. It's quite popular — we are using it, a lot of customers are using it. From an architecture point of view, I'd rate it seven out of ten.

A third-party migration tool that works well in Windows environments but needs improvement in Linux environments

What is our primary use case?

The primary use is to monitor any type of migration.

In this instance, you cannot use native tools for the migration in case an application path is present. You have to use a third-party tool, such as Carbonite Migrate, that can do the migration from one platform to another platform when you switch the setting.

Pros and Cons

  • "Carbonite Migrate works well in Windows platform migrations and in the case of a VML platform. The migration is smooth in Windows environments."
  • "Migration in RHEL and Linux environments can be improved. During RHEL migration with multiple data areas, you have to create a similar source environment at the destination. This can be challenging because you have to install it, create the VM, install over it, and mount it at the mount point. Only then can you do the migration."

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I give Carbonite Migrate a 7. It is a good third-party migration tool because it can be used with clients who have heterogeneous environments. It is a good tool for any-to-any migration.
