Microsoft Announces Virtual Machine Converter Plug-in for VMware vSphere Client Beta

Microsoft has announced that a new beta version of its Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter Plug-in for VMware vSphere Client version 1.0 is now available on Microsoft Connect.

The Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC) Plug-in for VMware vSphere Client is a Microsoft-supported solution for IT pros or solution providers who want to convert VMware-based virtual machines to Microsoft Hyper-V-based virtual machines from vSphere Client. This plug-in extends vSphere Client to facilitate conversions from a virtual machine context menu and without changing configurations on the source VMware host.

The latest version builds upon Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter release candidate, which:

  • 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.
For more details about which guest operating systems are supported, see the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter documentation:http://connect.microsoft.com/site14/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?DownloadID=42754.
