Cross-Hypervisor Restores (Virtual Machine Conversion)

From backups performed with the Virtual Server Agent, you can perform a full VM restore and convert the source virtual machine to be used with a different hypervisor.

Supported Conversions

You can choose a different destination hypervisor when restoring a virtual machine from backups. This feature is referred to as cross-hypervisor restores, VM conversion or, when restoring from an on-premises deployment to a cloud platform, cloud migration.

The following table shows the types of cross-hypervisor restores that are supported from the Command Center and the CommCell Console.
