Multiple contemporary conversions/Automatic conversions? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    We are evaluating the migration of 600+ vms from vmware 3.5. to a 2012 HyperV Cluster running the full suite System Center 2012 sp1beta.   As I understand, we should first upgrade to vsphere 4.1 in order to install the MVMC plugin. Beside the storage I need to provide in order to accommodate  the snapshots taken during conversion, Is it possible to run multiple conversions tasks at the same time?What issues would I face beside disk I/O bottlenecks? What would be the best strategy to carry out the conversions unattended?

    Has we don't have staff to dedicate to this task we'd rather have the conversions running in the background for days and days instead of assigning a full time person to this job.

    I have searched  benchmark data to compare MVMC to Vmware Converter but had no luck.. Is there anybody out there with some real-world experience?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Cheer,

    Kostacurta
