US personal data which stored in AD couldn't be transferred out of the country.

The days of Windows and MS SQL are over, at least as far as v Sphere management is concerned.
Over the past year, I’ve done a lot of migrations for customers.
The v Center Server Appliance is all the rage right now.
No, it’s not a fad, in fact if you want to make sure you can take advantage of all the latest cool features, you should make the jump.
And with Migration Manager, you’ll be able to move all types of objects including users, groups, computers, volumes, printers, contacts, organizational units, network topology (e.g., sites, subnet, site links) as well as directory permissions.
