This is a portable version of VMware's popular conversion tool that allows you to run it from any location without installing it on your system.


In this article, we will explain what VMware vCenter Converter Standalone is, what the portable version does, and how to use it effectively.


Introduction




VMware vCenter Converter Standalone is a free software that enables you to convert physical machines (such as Windows or Linux servers or desktops), virtual machines (such as Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, or Oracle VirtualBox), or disk images (such as Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery or Acronis True Image) into VMware virtual machines.


By converting your existing machines into VMware virtual machines, you can benefit from:


  • Reducing hardware costs by consolidating multiple physical machines into fewer virtual machines



  • Improving performance, availability, and security by running your machines on a modern virtualization platform



  • Simplifying backup, recovery, migration, and replication by using standard VMware tools and features



  • Enhancing compatibility and interoperability by using a common virtual machine format



VMware vCenter Converter Standalone is a standalone application that does not require any other VMware products or components to run.


However, if you have VMware vSphere or VMware Workstation installed on your system, you can use them to manage and operate your converted virtual machines. The portable version of VMware vCenter Converter Standalone is a compressed file that contains all the necessary files and components to run the conversion tool without installing it on your system. This means that you can use it from any location, such as a USB drive, a network share, or a cloud storage service. The portable version is useful for situations where you need to perform conversions on different machines or environments, or where you do not have administrative privileges to install software on your system. The portable version has the same features and functionality as the installed version, except for the following limitations: - You cannot install VMware Tools on the destination virtual machine during the conversion process. You have to install them manually after the conversion is completed. - You cannot use the VMware vCenter Converter Boot CD to perform cold cloning of physical machines. You have to use the hot cloning method, which requires the source machine to be powered on and running an operating system. - You cannot use the VMware vCenter Converter Agent to perform remote conversions of physical machines. You have to run the portable version locally on the source machine or use a third-party tool to access it remotely.
