What is more challenging than moving to the cloud? You guessed it - moving from one cloud platform to another. Fortunately, solutions such as Cloud Converter are able to reduce or eliminate most (if not all) of the transition troubles.
Cloud Converter's technology gives users a way to move their cloud servers between supported platforms. That currently includes all major Linux operating systems on physical or cloud servers, as well as cloud providers such as Amazon, Rackspace, GoGrid, Host Virtual, Linode and others based on VMware, Xen, KVM, or OpenVZ technology.
The solution works by creating a unique fingerprint based on the cloud provider, technology and other variables between the source and target servers. The service then uses this fingerprint to convert and move data from one provider to the other. Most server installations are moved in between five and twenty minutes.
