Features and Benefits
- Free standalone tool
Doesn't require any additional software licenses.
- Enables conversion without VMware service interruption
Does not require 'removing' the guest from the source VMware environment prior to conversion.
Thus this version does not perform the ‘online’ conversion, but the downtime is much less than in case you need to store the guest in the library in order to migrate.
- Fast, effective and easy to use
Performance testing showed up to x10 times higher conversion speeds than the current competition.
- Supports migration of the guests with different configurations
This includes large disk(s) and shared disks – these scenarios are specifically prone to the errors that other tools suffer from.
- Allows to modify the target guest configuration parameters
Although the source VM configuration is preserved by default.
- Supports conversion of both WindowsOS, Ubuntu and CentOS VMs in most configurations.
