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 😛
