Amazon Web Services offers VMware connector

VMware virtual machines easier to move to cloud with VM Import Connector

Amazon Web Services (AWS) will help IT staff to move virtual machines to the AWS cloud with a new plugin for VMware’s management platform, AWS said on Friday.

The Amazon EC2 VM Import Connector is a plugin for VMware vCenter Server. It is based on Amazon VM Import, a feature that was announced last year and allows IT staff to move to a virtual machine image from their existing VMware environment to Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). The Connector lets them do it using an interface they are familiar with, AWS said a blog post.
