Server Migration Service

Server Migration Service (SMS) provides P2V and V2V migration services to help you migrate workloads from on-premises x86 physical servers or VMs on private or public clouds to ECSs on HUAWEI CLOUD.

The Server Migration Service is free, but there is a small fee for the temporary EVS disks used for each migration task.

Product Advantages
  • Seamless Migration

    SMS seamlessly migrates workloads to HUAWEI CLOUD ECSs without service interruption. SMS ensures minimal downtime during the final data migration cutover.

  • Fast Transmission

    SMS transmits data through the Internet, private lines, or VPNs. It identifies valid data on source servers by analyzing disk partitions and file systems, and automatically switches transmission methods to improve migration efficiency.

  • Strong Compatibility

    SMS migrates VMs on mainstream private or public clouds and x86 physical servers. SMS supports over 40 OSs.

  • High Security

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