What Virtualization Tools Are Available?

Virtual Server 2005 Migration Toolkit is a free tool available from Microsoft that enables you to migrate a physical machine to a virtual machine. This is commonly known as the P2V (physical-to-virtual) process. This may be used to make a clone of an existing physical machine for test and development purposes. You may use this as a tool to help move servers off their existing legacy hardware that may be close to failing. This can also be used for creating images of physical machines for disaster recovery purposes as well. This is a list of operating systems that the Migration Toolkit supports:

  • Windows Server 2003 (Standard and Enterprise)

  • Windows 2000 (Standard and Advanced) SP4 or later required

  • Windows NT 4.0 Server (Standard and Enterprise) SP6a required
