This walk-through will guide you through the steps to deploy a production Velostrata environment which is equipped to migrate systems from AWS to GCP. It will leverage articles from our official documentation.
For more information on the Velostrata solution, including capabilities, terminology, technology, and networking, please read through this section.
Before deploying Velostrata, you'll need to complete some pre-requisites in GCP first which are outlined here.
You'll also need to configure AWS properly by using the steps outlined here.
Velostrata Appliance Installation(s)
Once pre-requisites are met in GCP, you can proceed to installing the Velostrata deployment within GCP. You can do that using guide here, which outlines how to add a Cloud Extension to GCP from the Velostrata Web Manager (appliance in GCP).
If you ALSO have systems to move from on-prem, you must also install a Velostrata appliance on-prem by following this guide here.
Velostrata Cloud Extension Installation
Once we've installed the Velostrata appliance(s), we'll need to install Cloud Extensions in GCP by following these steps here.
If you ALSO have systems to move from on-prem, you must also install a Cloud Extension in vCetner by following these steps here.
For more detailed information on Cloud Extensions, see this guide here.
Once the Velostrata appliance and Cloud Extension are installed, you're ready to start migrating systems from on-prem to GCP. Instructions for some of the most common operations can be found here:
- Migrating Workloads directly from vCenter
- Batch Migration / Ordered Migration
For all Velostrata operations, please refer to this guide here.
