Invirtus Inc. announced the beta availability of a new product: Enterprise VM Converter, an enterprise-class platform conversion application that transforms physical machines into virtual machines.
Invirtus VM Converter allows users to convert any number of Windows host operating systems running on a physical machine(s) into a guest operating system on a virtual machine(s). Users can convert host operating systems one-by-one or simultaneously by scheduling automated batches without requiring a user to be present at the machine being converted, and there are never any reboots. In addition, VM Converter does not require any software to be installed on the machine being converted. IT professionals interested in becoming Beta testers should sign up at www.invirtus.com.
VM Converter Beta provides the following features:
- VM Optimizer is designed to work with vmdk files from all versions of VMware Workstation, VMware Server, VMware ACE, VMware GSX Server, VMware ESX Server.
- VM Optimizer is also designed to work with vhd files from Microsoft Virtual PC 2004, Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, and Microsoft Virtual Server 2005.
"IT managers who need a cost-effective, simple but powerful way to migrate physical systems into virtual machines will find that Invirtus is a valuable part of any Enterprise migration strategy!" said Tom Edwards, Invirtus CEO. "By using VM Maker and VM Optimizer, our customers can maximize their return on investment with virtualization."
VM Maker is the first in a series of additional virtualization tools that Invirtus will offer during Q1 2007. When used in conjunction with Invirtus VM Optimizer 2.5, the combined products provide ease of conversion and the creation of smaller, faster VMs, according to the company.
