VMware Converter is a utility that facilitates the creation of VMware virtual machines from physical systems or virtual machines associated with third-party vendors. The utility also enables migration of virtual machines between VMware platforms from a centralized management console.

With VMware Converter 3, the latest version of the utility, multiple simultaneous conversions are possible without source server downtime or OS (operating system) on the source machine. Conversion speed is enhanced by sector-based copying. The complexity of the process is minimized by user-friendly wizards. If desired, conversions and migrations can be controlled from remote locations.

VMware converter 3 is designed for use with physical machines running 64-bit Windows XP or Windows 2003, WinNT SP4+ or Windows 2000. Supported source third-party images include Microsoft Virtual Server, Microsoft Virtual PC, Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery, Norton Ghost 10 and Norton Save & Restore. Supported VMware virtual machines include VMware Workstation, VMware GSX Server, VMware Player, VMware Server and VMware ESX Server.
