VMware Converter 4 migrates Win to VM on Macs and others

Monday, February 16, 2009

VMware just posted its latest version of VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 4.0, a new version of the free software that can import physical Windows and Linux installations into virtual machines. The Converter software runs on Windows and Linux, but the resulting virtual machines can run on any VMware virtualization package, including VMware Fusion for Mac OS X.

VMware Converter 4.0 can now migrate a physical Windows Server 2008 to a virtual machine. It can also migrate three Linux source OS's, RHEL, SUSE, and Ubuntu, and can convert other virtual image formats to VMware. Those include Parallels Desktop virtual machines, newer versions of Symantec, Acronis, and StorageCraft.

The new version of Converter adds workflow automation enhancements, such as automatic source machine shutdown, destination start-up as well as shutting down one or more services at the source and starting up selected services at the destination. For more, see the VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 4.0 release notes.

VMware also just released VMware Fusion 2.0.2 for Mac OS X.

If you've tried VMware Converter 4.0 what you think.
