Migrating workloads to VMware Server Virtualization#
Several options, described in the following sections, are available to customers migrating their workloads to VMware Server Virtualization.
Rackspace provisions new virtual machines for customers to perform a manual data migration.
Import from OVA/OVF file#
Customers can send physical media to Rackspace to import existing OVA/OVF file(s) into their VMware Server Virtualization environment. These imports are considered unmanaged VMs (see Roles and responsibilities for more details) unless reconfigured to meet Rackspace managed support standards. For more details around reconfiguration process, consult your account team.
