VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 6.0


Performance and Reliability

  • Multiple simultaneous conversions enable large-scale virtualization implementations.
  • Quiescing and snapshotting of the guest operating system on the source machine before migrating the data ensures conversion reliability.
  • Hot cloning makes conversions non-disruptive, with no source server downtime or reboot.
  • Sector-based copying enhances cloning and conversion speed.
  • Support for cold cloning (conversion that requires server downtime and reboot) is available, in addition to hot cloning.


  • Centralized management console allows users to queue up and monitor multiple simultaneous remote, as well as local, conversions.
  • Easy-to-use wizards minimize the number of steps to conversion.
  • Support for both local and remote cloning enables conversions in remote locations such as branch offices.
