Beta tool available now
Microsoft has pulled the wraps off a new free
Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC)
. The new MVMC coincides with the launch of
later this week.
The MVMC will convert
virtual machines running on VMware vSphere
to a format that will work with Microsoft virtualization environment Hyper-V. The tool will also convert virtual disks using the VMDK format into Hyper-V compatible versions. The virtual machine encapsulates an entire service for the desktop environment into a file.
The MVMC can convert virtual machines made with vSphere 4.0, 4.1, and 5.0 to be able to run on Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, and the Hyper-V Server versions of those operating systems.
Network administrators can choose between two different versions of the conversion tool. One version of the tool has a graphical user interface with a wizard to apply the conversion and another uses a command-line interface.
Microsoft is offering the MVMC as part of its “
Switch to Hyper-V
” campaign that was announced at its Worldwide Partner Conference this year.

No, they're not. They're anti-competitive and idiotic. Compete based on technical merit, not based on how many lawyers you have, and how many $Billions you have in the bank. When ANY company, whether it's Microsoft or Apple or whomever, uses "the three E's" to win market share, the only ones who lose are you and I - the consumers. No thanks.
