Downtime Calculator

Discover the TRUE cost of migrations.

Server migration projects can be costly, requiring considerable system downtime and a heavy load of labor hours. And when the source and target platforms are different, such as when migrating to a virtual environment, migration becomes more complex and can require even more work and more downtime.

Many operating system and database vendors offer “free” migration tools, but these tools are free only in the sense that they don’t carry additional licensing fees. Using them can still require considerable manual effort and significant server downtime. Thus, though free to own, they can be expensive to use.

Compute the cost of a migration using our calculator below. Start with entering the values for other tools. Please refer to the glossary on the right for assistance with determining these values. Then enter the values for Vision's migration solutions, and finish by hitting the "calculate" button.
