Big Blue has announced that in 2009, the company, with the help of its Migration Factory software, has successfully lured 200 former Sun Microsystems and Hewlett-Packard customers, who have shifted their critical workloads to IBM’s system and storage technology.
IBM Migration Factory, which was launched by the New York based company, is aimed at those businesses which are no longer faithful to Sun or HP but don’t bother to shift their workloads to a different software system.
Migration Factory allows users to ‘migrate’ from their existing IT infrastructure in a way that ensures a smooth and effective transition, to IBM’s business infrastructure offerings.
Ever since it was launched, IBM has helped 2200 companies to move their custom elsewhere and shun its rivals for good.
Lately, the company has been aggressively trying to exploit the uncertainty of Sun’s fate after it was acquired by Oracle and has launched various critical updates for Migration factory software.
Interestingly, the company reported that it had managed to generate $200 million in revenue from Power Systems from competitive displacements of customers in the fourth quarter of 2009.
