Red Hat, Inc. announced the general availability of Red Hats migration toolkit for virtualization to help organizations accelerate open hybrid cloud strategies by making it easier to migrate existing workloads to modern infrastructure in a streamlined, wholesale manner. By bringing mission-critical applications based on virtual machines (VMs) to Red Hat OpenShift, IT organizations can experience a smoother, more scalable modernization experience while mitigating potential risks and downtime. As more and more companies embrace containers and cloud-native technologies, IT organizations are tasked with addressing existing systems and workloads, many of which may run on infrastructure or resources that arent compatible with the realities of modern computing. Modernizing these deployments can be time consuming, costly and overwhelming for developers, IT operations teams and business users without the necessary tools. In an effort to help organizations break down application barriers between traditional and cloud-native workloads, Red Hat announced OpenShift Virtualization  in 2020. With OpenShift Virtualization, Red Hat brought traditional application stacks forward into a layer of open innovation, enabling customers to truly transform at their own speed. As this trend continues, Red Hat is working with customers and partners to modernize and migrate projects to help enable cloud-native capabilities through migration toolkits  that come with OpenShift. These offerings now include the migration toolkit for virtualization by Red Hat, which helps migrate VMs at scale to Red Hat OpenShift. This gives organizations the ability to more easily access workloads running on virtual machines, while developing new cloud-native applications. Migrations are performed in a few simple steps, first by providing source and destination credentials, then mapping the source and destination infrastructure and creating a choreographed plan and finally, executing the migration effort.
