Nutanix Move is a cross-hypervisor migration solution to migrate VMs with minimal downtime supporting three types of sources for migration:

  • migration of VMs running on an ESXi hypervisor managed by vCenter;
  • migration of EBS backed EC2 instances running on AWS;
  • migration of VMs running on a Hyper-V hypervisor.

Nutanix Move also supports the migration of AWS EC2 VMs to AHV on the Nutanix cluster.

You can perform the following operations with Nutanix Move.

  • Migrate powered on or powered off VMs.

    Note: For AWS, the migration takes place in powered on state. For ESXi, the powered state is retained.

  • Pause and resume migration
  • Schedule migration
  • Schedule data-seeding for the virtual machines in advance and cut over to a new AHV cluster
  • Manage VM migrations between multiple clusters from a single management interface
  • Sort and group VMs for easy migration
  • Monitor details of migration plan execution even at the individual VM level
  • Cancel in-progress migration for individual VMs
  • Migrate all AHV certified OSes (see Supported Guest VM Types for AHV)
