Migration to HC3


When moving from a traditional virtual and physical infrastructure to HC3 modern infrastructure, downtime  is not an option.  Traditional migration solutions can cause unneeded downtime with unneeded complexity.

Migration Made Easy

HC3® Move Powered by Double-Take® allows you to migrate physical, and virtual Windows and Linux-based server workloads with real-time replication from a single, intuitive user console. This unique technology eliminates user and application downtime during migrations. HC3 Move powered by Double-Take migrates your entire server including the system state, applications, file system, permissions, attributes, compression and encryption settings without suspending production operations. All system and application data is moved while it is live and online and HC3 Move powered by Double-Take ensures the write order integrity for all migrated data.

  • Captures all changes that users make during the migration and replicates them to the new server in real-time
  • Migrates the entire system or just file or application data for standard or custom file and application servers and even domain controllers
  • Continues replicating changes after the initial synchronization until the desired cutover time
  • Migrations can be performed during business hours or at any time that makes sense for your business

How It Works


Simple, Flexible Configuration

  • Continuously captures byte-level changes to a server’s OS, applications and data
  • Updates DNS for migrations across network subnets to help users easily reconnect after cutover, even across a WAN
  • Migrate to physical or virtual servers that have a different number of drives, drive sizes, CPUs or memory than the original source
  • A simple interface lets you efficiently manage large migration projects
  • Cutover to the new server can be executed manually or set up to be fully automatic
  • For virtual server migrations, take advantage of the Test Cutover capabilities to proactively validate your migration cutover will work as planned
