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.
