HCX supports 3 methods for migrating VM’s to cloud:
- Cold Migration
- HCX Cross-Cloud vMotion
- HCX Bulk Migration
To know more about these migration methods, please read this post to know more about the migration methods.
HCX migrations can be scheduled from the HCX UI using the vSphere Client or can be automated using the HCX API. In last post of this series, I demonstrated few PowerCli commands that we can use for HCX system.
API/PowerCli is obvious choice when you think of automation. Using automation do not only help in reducing the amount of user input required in UI but reduces the chances of human errors as well.
