Platespin is a great product, however quite pricey. As VMware Converter is free (Starter Edition). Also, platespin, if never used before may be a little more difficult to work with as apposed to converter.

1. PlateSpin Migrate enables up to 40 simultaneous workload migrations to dramatically

2. With the new version they provide partition alignment.

3. Look at the vmware converter 4 beta program
