What about hackers?
Microsoft recently posted that of the 45 critical XP patches released
in the last year 30 were applicable to Windows 7 too.

Windows XP Migration - Three Questions
1
How can we complete our Windows 7 Migration
on time and on budget with the resources we have?
2
How can we easily rollback a user to their Windows XP
system if the Windows 7 Migration does not complete
successfully?
3
How can I migrate my users who work from home,
the road, or a remote office, without installing additional
branch infrastructure?

IT Managed
 Does not actually shift contents
merged together at the endpoint

 Empowers IT to perform granular

 User-Installed apps are preserved
for use during migrations or
desktop recovery
Automated Windows 7 Migration
The Challenge. Microsoft announced end of support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014.
The Solution
How Mirage Helps
1. Automates staging of Windows
7 image on each PC
2. It minimizes end-user downtime
compared to competition
3. Migrates XP / Vista to Win 7
4. Transfers user profile and data
from old OS to New Win 7
install
Careful planning is essential. Windows 7 migrations are a difficult and time-consuming
project for any tool. Understand critical parts Mirage supports and what is out of scope,
such as Application Remediation.
Automated Windows 7 deployment
Step 1: Intelligent image delivery

Windows XP ‘Insurance’
The Challenge. End of XP Support – Prohibitive Support contract & diminishing time…
The Solution
How Mirage Helps
1. Continuous back-up of
Windows XP image
2. Ability to ‘roll-back’ to clean
Windows XP image
3. Ongoing Snapshots of XP
image
4. Store Data/Profiles ready for
Windows 7 migration
Careful planning is essential. Use of Horizon Mirage for ‘managing’ Windows XP will
not protect your devices/image from any attacks.
Horizon Mirage™ Multiple Use Case Scenarios
IT manages a single image centrally
Automated Win7 Deploy.
Endpoint Backup & DR
Highly efficient de-duplication &
synchronization (even over WAN)
PC Refresh $ Savings

Who Has Done This Already?
Needs
VMware Solution
Migrate 2,400 desktops to new laptops
while preserving user data and 1,110
various user-installed applications.
Horizon Mirage allowed ADAC’s IT
team to quickly get their end-users up
and running on their new laptops
without sacrificing any of their user
data or user-installed applications.
Benefits
• Saved 250,000 Euro using Horizon
Mirage over other solutions.
• Completed entire migration in just
three weeks, drastically reducing the
time of the project.
• Had full rollback capabilities if
needed during migrations.
“With VMware Horizon Mirage we had exactly the
same IT environment on the PC, but were able to
migrate over everything that made that desktop
personal to our users... IT was able to separate the IT
images on the desktop PCs from the user space —
applications, files and personalization. ”
Stefan Brandstetter, IT Manager, ADAC e.V.
