Back in April Microsoft announced the beta version of the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter Solution Accelerator. The Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter allows you to migrate your VMware vSphere Virtual Machines to your brand new Microsoft Hyper-V environment.
Today the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter Release Candidate is available for testing. The best thing at the RC is the support of Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012, but there are also other new capabilities.
New in the Release Candidate
In addition to the capabilities that were delivered as part of the beta release, the MVMC Release Candidate:
- Converts and deploys virtual machines from VMware hosts to Hyper-V hosts running:
- Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate
- Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 Release Candidate
- Adds virtual network interface cards (NICs) to the converted virtual machine on Hyper-V
- Configures dynamic memory on the converted virtual machine
- Supports migration of virtual machines that are hosted on a vSphere cluster
- Supports migration of virtual machines to a Hyper-V host that is part of a failover cluster
- Enables Microsoft partners to cobrand the tool so that it incorporates their logos
