Hyper-V Migration

Vembu BDR backup server uses its own patented cloud file system – VembuHIVE, that serves as the foundation of all the functionalities. This file system allows you to mount and extract your backups (physical/virtual machines) instantly in multiple file formats such as VMDK, VHD, VHDX, IMG which can be used to perform Cross-Platform migration (P2V, V2P) or Cross-Hypervisor migration (V2V).

Migrate to Hyper-V environment

Vembu BDR Suite has inbuilt Hyper-V Converter which helps to convert the physical and virtual machines to Microsoft Hyper-V with minimal downtime.

  • Backup the physical/virtual machines that you would like to migrate to Hyper-V environment. With Vembu BDR Suite, you can convert a VMware VM to Hyper V or physical windows machine to Hyper V.
  • Once the backup is completed, download the VHD or VHDX files created for the respective physical/virtual machines backup.
  • Now, move the files to Hyper-V storage and use the data to create a VM that permanently migrates your physical/virtual machines to Hyper-V.

Note: Before you move your physical servers & virtual machines to Hyper-V environment, you can test the integrity of image files VHD and VHDX with Quick VM Recovery. This option lets you instantly boot the backup data as a VM on Hyper-V and once the VM output is good, you can move the VHD or VHDX to the Hyper-V storage permanently.

Migrate Hyper-V VMs to other Hypervisors

  • Vembu BDR Suite also supports conversion of Hyper-V VMs to other hypervisors like VMware, VirtualBox, KVM, etc
  • You will need to download the backed up Hyper-V VMs data to the virtual format used by your target hypervisor.
  • For example: You can easily convert a VM from Hyper-V to VMware by downloading the backup data into VMDK or Flat.VMDK file and use this disk file to migrate your Hyper-V VM to VMware ESXi. Similarly, you can also convert Hyper-V to VirtualBox by downloading the disk data into VHD format.
