VMware launches Virtual Machine Importer 2.0 beta program

Since the release of Workstation 5.5 VMware is offering for free an handful tool to transform virtual machines made with Microsoft Virtual PC / Server and computer images made with Symantec LiveState.

Now, after a big success, VMware has started a beta program for the 2.0 release, extending importing and exporting features to upcoming VMware Server 1.0 (formerly GSX Server 4.0), ESX Server 3.0 and Virtual Center 2.0 products.

The new GUI is pretty smart, now able to grab local virtual machines and importing them in remote virtual infrastructures, with immediate placement in inventory.

Thanks to Run-Virtual for the news.
