Wanova Mirage — In-Place Windows XP to Windows 7 Migraton (Read as PDF)
Standard Windows 7 Migraton
Gartner estimates that a standard Windows 7 migration will take between 3.5 to 4 hours per PC resulting in the migration of 2-3 PCs per day per technician. Using a migration tool alleviates some work associated with role-based application installation, but since the process stll requires a full standard installation of Windows 7, the migration throughput only increases to approximately 4-6 PCs per day per technician. During this period, the user is unable to do any work on his or her PC.
Centralized, In-place Migration using Wanova Mirage
With Wanova Mirage, Windows 7 migration is fully automated and centrally controlled. Specifically, Wanova transfers the Windows 7 image to the end points and swaps the XP image without requiring IT to touch the end point or use any external boot media. Wanova optimizes image delivery by employing network de-duplicaton and branch caching technologies, without requiring dedicated proxy hardware at each branch. Together with being zero touch, this makes the soluton ideal for remote and distributed employees. Wanova creates a back up copy of the XP image in the data center, which allows users to access their XP device if the Windows 7 image is missing applications or not fully operational. The user downtime is only 30 minutes.
The bottom line is that a single technician can concurrently handle 100 migrations per day for either local or remote employees. For a 5,000 person organization, this equates to a $600,000 in IT time cost savings and over $1,000,000 in user productivity savings.
What else can Wanova Mirage do?
Once PCs are migrated to Windows 7, IT can use the same Mirage solution for a centralized, single-image management o that IT only has to manage, patch and ensure compliance of a single copy of Windows and a single copy of each applicaton – instead of trying to manage thousands of diverse end points.
The centralizaton of the images as part of the migration process and the continuous synchronization after the migraton also provides back-up and recovery of the entire PC image including user apps, files, and profiles. Other benefts of Mirage include hardware refresh and centralized PC breakfix support such as malware repair, applicaton repair and registry issues.
How do we do it?
It’s a new way of managing your desktops. We take a snapshot of your entire desktop and save it in the data center for a complete image backup. Then we synchronize your desktop every hour while you work. This allows us to fix any issue that may arise, from virus infections, to blue screens of death, by simply restoring your computer back to a known good state without effecting any user data or applications on the desktop. This flexible approach between the Cloud and local desktops allows us to fix most issues within minutes – not days – saving you time and money.
If you are thinking of using OS deployment tools, here is an example of a Windows 7 migration comparing the use of legacy OS deployment tools versus the use of Wanova Mirage. The difference in downtime shown is 4 - 5 hours for the end user versus 30 - 45 minutes!
Windows 7 Migration using Mirage in a nutshell:
- Migrate a large collecton of Windows XP end points to Windows 7 across a WAN or LAN
- No loss of user personalization or user fles
- Zero touch by IT and minimal downtime for end users
- Full backup of the XP image
- Central configuration and monitoring, without requiring dedicated proxy hardware at each branch
