Michael Pietroforte is the founder and editor of 4sysops. He is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) with more than 30 years of experience in system administration.

Some weeks ago I wrote about P2V migration for VMware, discussing six different ways to do the job. The growing number of referrals to this post show that this topic is troubling many IT professionals at the moment. Even VMware linked to my site from their Technology Network. Some sites have other useful information about P2V migration which I am going to share in this post. It also provides a list of all P2V products and solutions I’ve found so far. Let me know, if you’ve heard of others. I will add them to this list then.

P2V articles and reviews

There is another document I want to mention for the Rockefellers among us. It is a 3-page article about P2V basics from Forrester Research, priced at US$349 only. It is so easy to make good money these days, isn’t it?

Update: Please read this post about VMware’s free P2V solution, VMware Converter 3.0.
