Product Advantages

  • Seamless Migration

    SMS seamlessly migrates workloads to HUAWEI CLOUD ECSs without interrupting services. SMS ensures minimal downtime during the final cutover.

  • Fast Transmission

    SMS transmits data over the Internet, or over a Direct Connect or VPN connection. It identifies valid data on source servers by analyzing disk partitions and file systems, and automatically switches transmission methods as needed to improve efficiency.

  • Strong Compatibility

    SMS migrates x86 physical or virtual servers on premises or in many popular private or public clouds. SMS supports migration of over 40 different system versions.

  • High Security

    SMS authenticates the Agent using the AK/SK pair and uses dynamically generated SSL certificates and keys to encrypt the transmission channel for data security.
