Migrating 500-600 endpoints scatted throughout the State of Maryland from a Novell to Windows Active Directory (AD) environment can be a challenge and when coupled with an aggressive timeline, can be completely overwhelming. End-user downtime was a primary concern as an afterhours migration was not optional. For this migration, GANTECH’s virtualization experts activated VMware Mirage, a product enabling simultaneous hardware and software upgrades on a large scale and with very little downtime. Mirage also provides the ability to restore systems to their prior state when needed.

All endpoints were migrated in a timely manner and without burdening IT staff at the end-user sites.
