Microsoft provides tools to convert VMs from one hypervisor (mostly VMware vSphere) to another. Microsoft recommends Azure Site Recovery when performing a large-scale conversions.
Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC) is a stand-alone tool that can be used to:
- convert virtual machines and disks from VMware hosts to Hyper-V hosts and Microsoft Azure;
- convert physical machines and disks to Hyper-V hosts.
MVMC has been offcially retired and can only be used for converting VMs up to version 6.0.
Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2016 also supports conversion of VMs up to version 6.0 only.
Azure Site Recovery is a DR orchestration solution for Hyper-V or VMware (as well as physical servers). When a physical server or a VMware vSphere VM is replicated to Azure, the disks are also converted in VHD format. Next you can download the VHD to run the VM in your on premises datacenter.
