What Do You Expect in Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC) Release 3.0? #HyperV #MVMC

Hello Folks,

In a previous blog post I showed you on how to migrate VMware VMs To Hyper-V with MVMC 2.0.

The good news is that Microsoft announced the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC) 3.0 is coming out this fall 2014.

What is the biggest improvement:

Online Physical to Virtual Conversions and support for both physical servers and physical client OSs. Free download without dependency on System Center Smile.

Just so you understand, the MVMC never had P2V functionality, rather it was offered only in System Center 2008, 2012 and 2012 SP1 Virtual Machine Manager. Microsoft stated that P2V had been deprecated, but they were referring to the latest System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM), which only offers Virtual-to-Virtual (V2V) like the current MVMC 2.0. With the MVMC 3.0 release coming up this fall, P2V will once again be available which will be a huge addition to conversion and migration capabilities.

Until then, stay tuned!

Cheers,
/Charbel
