Introducing the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter BETA


For small business customers looking at migrating from VMware to Hyper-v…

Introducing the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter BETA (MVMC).

The Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter Beta Solution Accelerator is a 4 MB (yes, 4 MB) download that converts VMware virtual machines to Hyper-V. The Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter:

· Provides a quick, low-risk option for VMware customers to evaluate Hyper-V

· Converts VMware VMs, virtual disks and configuration, (memory, virtual processor, etc.) from the source to Hyper-V

· Uninstalls the VMware tools on the source VM and installs the Hyper-V Integration Services as appropriate

· Includes an easy-to-use wizard-driven GUI simplifying VM conversion

The current MVMC Beta supports converting virtual machines created with:

· VMware vSphere 4.1

· VMware vSphere 5.0

To virtual machines for:

· Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Hyper-V

· Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 SP1

Support for Windows Server “8” Hyper-V is in the works, but not in the current MVMC Beta release.
