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 Windows 8 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.
