Free VMware and Microsoft Image File V2V Converter

StartWind famous company in the world of storage because of their free iSCSI target for Windows systems (which is supported inside VMware, Microsoft and Citrix virtual machines) has released a software tool to convert virtual machine between major vendors. (Between HYPER-V and VMWare…etc)

This will be a really good news for SMB and Enterprise customers who wanted a safe method to convert from one platform to another. From Microsoft point of view the only method to convert VMWare virtual PC to HYPER-V is using the SCVMM. Again this will be not a practical solution for SMB market since they don’t really need SCVMM if they are only managing one HOST. But with this free converter customer will get a relief to safely convert VPC’s between different vendors.

  You can download the software from here. Key Features of StarWind Converter:

— Converts from VMDK to VHD and vice versa

— Sector by sector copy

— Does not modify source image

— Easy to install and use

More information to come when i really test this in my lab environment 😛
