Dear All,

Today we are going to learn about Huawei FusionSphere Service Migration Solution.


Introduction to Huawei Rainbow

Huawei-developed migration tool Rainbow hConvertor supports migration of mainstream OSs (Linux and Windows) on the X86 architecture. The tool is easy to deploy.

The solution supports FusionSphere-based P2V and V2V service migration.

It supports Windows- and Linux-based block-level and file-level migration, and data synchronization.



  • Rainbow Server: the tool control software

  • Rainbow sAgent: the agent of the migration source

  • Rainbow dAgent: the agent of the migration target

Service Migration Process


Based on Service Migration scenarios, FusionSphere Service Migration solution consists of the following types:

  • Physical to Virtual (P2V) migration: Migrates the OSs and applications from physical servers to virtual servers on Huawei Unified Virtualization Platform (UVP) cloud platform. In this migration, system status and data are mirrored to the VMs on the UVP cloud platform using multiple tools and software. On the VMs, replace the storage hardware and network interface card (NIC) drivers of the physical servers. Virtual servers can take the place of the physical servers if drivers are installed as required and the IP addresses of the virtual servers are configured the same as the IP addresses of the source physical servers. After restart, virtual servers take over the work from physical servers.

  • Virtual to Virtual (V2V) migration: Migrates the OSs and data from one Virtualization to platform and involves different hardware. For example, V2V can be used to migrate VMs of VMware to the UVP or migrate VMs on the KVM to the UVP. Different ways can be used to migrate VMs from a source cloud platform to another cloud platform.

  • Data migration between VMs in Huawei's cloud platform migrates OSs and data between VMs that are hosted on the Huawei FusionSphere platforms of the same version or of different versions.

Comprehensive Migration Tool

Huawei migration tool is a comprehensive one. It supports information collection and cloudification evaluation for hosts before migration, implements Service Migration from a traditional IT system to a cloudified IT system, and synchronizes data after the migration.
