Hi Jeff - any support for KVM in the pipeline ?

David Bullock


Would VirtualBox support be possible?

- Dave

Justin Rovang

Virtualbox will allow you to create VM's using VMDK

This is simply stellar and a huge strategic move. Great work!

Kevin Burke

Can you support importing Github for Enterprise? It's distributed as an OVF file. Would be really useful for us.


So the export service currently only works for Windows based EC2 instances. No linux ?

Steven Garner

Ubuntu 12-04 LTS instances into Xen Hypervisor virtual machine images.

Andrew Bond

What performance can be expected for exporting VMs with this service?

Greg Kuhnen

We'd be interested in Linux support, specifically x64 versions of CentOS, RedHat, and possibly Ubuntu.


What about Proxmox/OpenVZ ? We use Proxmox PVE internally with great success, and would really really love to be able to push/grab images from cloud to local at will

Dean W. Armstrong

"The service can export Windows Server 2003 (R2) and Windows Server 2008 EC2 instances to VMware ESX-compatible VMDK, Microsoft Hyper-V VHD or Citrix Xen VHD images"

I assume you mean Windows Server 2008 R2?

Joe Chiu

What is the timeline for VM converter to support earlier MS 2003 edition?

James Francey

What's the timeline on being able to export Ubuntu instances?

Eric Darby

RedHat and Oracle Linux would be HUGE!!!
