COLOGNE, Germany, April 5 /CNW/ - sepago, inventors of the Citrix User
Profile Manager, make version 2.0 of their Profile Migrator software
available as freeware for unlimited evaluation under http://www.profilemigrator.com. The new version extends the performance spectrum of the universal
enterprise solution for the migration of profiles by the GUI controlled
migration on clients: After provisioning the project definition, user
settings and data are collected "unattended" from source systems and
are written to newly created profiles and directories on the target
This results in simultaneous a profile cleanup along with the migration.
After the migration, users can immediately continue to work with their
familiar settings on the new system. This ensures business continuity
and avoids additional effort for the user helpdesk. Profile Migrator
significantly reduces the cost of a migration.
Windows 7 and Office 2010 out of the box
With the release of version 2.0, sepago also makes new ACS files
available free of charge. They permit the immediate and uncomplicated
migration of user settings for various standard applications. In a
single step, Profile Migrator masters not only a migration of the
operating system, e.g., from Windows XP to Windows 7, but also updates
of software versions, such as upgrades from Office XP, 2003 or 2007 to
The ACS technology developed by sepago for profile migration makes it
possible to migrate arbitrary application settings with Profile
Migrator. The required ACS files can be created with the "ACS Builder"
monitoring tool if the need arises and can be post-processed with the
Developed for enterprise use
The ACS technology enables Profile Migrator to be deployed flexibly, so
that even homegrown programs and windows-based special software can be
migrated. The adaptability for use in enterprise environments is
underlined by further features. For example, scripts can be executed
before and after the migration and Profile Migrator 2.0 can be
integrated into desktop management suites such as SCCM.
Like the first version, the new version of the sepago software also
supports all current migration scenarios. This also includes the
changeover of servers with a Windows Server 2003 operating system to
the latest version 2008 R2. In this context, Profile Migrator manages
the folder redirection that goes along with the introduction of 64 bit
as well as a change in language versions.
Profile Migration as bridge to the Cloud
With Profile Migrator, cloud service providers import selected user
settings and data of their customers from physical desktops to their
own virtual desktops. Even user profiles on clients running, e.g., on
Windows XP, can be switched to Windows Server 2008 R2 and 64 bit
technology in a single step. Profile Migrator is Citrix Ready and part
of the Citrix Desktop Transformation Model.
