Release: Quest/Vizioncore vConverter 5.0

Yesterday Vizioncore released a new major version of its physical to virtual (P2V) / virtual to virtual (V2V) / virtual to physical (V2P) migration tool: vConverter.

The previous milestone, vConverter 4.0, arrived in November 2008, with just one minor update released in September 2009, so this is a long overdue refreshment.

vConverter 5.0, priced at $299 per physical system, introduces P2V migration support for Microsoft Hyper-V and V2V migration support between VMware and Microsoft virtual machines.

The new capability is part of the Quest grand plan to support Hyper-V in all its Vizioncore product portfolio. A plan that became evident in March 2009 and that involved vControl first and vFoglight later.
