AWS Adds Microsoft Hyper-V Support for Migration Service

Customers can now use Amazon Web Services (AWS), Server Migration Service, to move their Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machine to the cloud.
AWS has updated its service to allow users to “migrate virtual machines running on-premises virtualization platforms from both Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware ESX/ESi environments,” as announced late last month.
AWS’ Server Migration Service was launched just over a decade ago to allow organizations to migrate their virtual infrastructures from AWS to its Elastic Compute cloud (EC2) with minimal configurations and service disruptions.
Simply use downloadable connectors to link virtual environments to Server Migration Service. There users can select which servers they want to replicate, set replication frequency, and monitor their current migration jobs.
AWS claims that the Server Migration Service can help organizations reduce the cost of migration because it is done in pieces.
The service is free and customers pay only for the storage used in their migrations.
