Subject Re: DISCUSS : Vmware to Cloudstack migration support
Date Wed, 05 Jul 2017 08:21:40 GMT

We are trying to migrate the vSphere environment to cloudstack (based on
XenServer) due to some internal product dependency which can be addressed
by the CloudStack environment.


Thanks & Regards,

Shreya
