GlassHouse Bows Migration Tool

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- GlassHouse Technologies, a global provider of independent IT infrastructure consulting services, today announced the release of Reflector, a proprietary tool for managing data center migrations and consolidations. Reflector acts as a single point of truth,” creating an efficient and streamlined process for managing a successful migration or consolidation project.

Often a challenge for IT managers, data center migrations are a necessary, yet complicated initiative for any IT department. By tracking all the requisite details of the migration or consolidation and then modeling potential outcomes, IT managers are provided with a roadmap to reduce costs and minimize risks. Once the appropriate migration strategy is solidified, Reflector then helps manage the entire process by flagging task and application interdependencies and serving as a central filter through which the data center team can track progress. This “single point of truth” details which tasks are completed, what’s yet to be done, and what could happen if there is a change in plans. Reflector not only helps IT managers save money and time, but greatly enhances their chances for success.

“Data center migrations rarely, if ever, go as planned, leading to increased exposure to downtime and ballooning costs,” said John Webster, principal IT advisor for Illuminata, Inc. “Here, even for highly competent IT organizations, it pays to have expert help to minimize risk and control costs.”
