Paragon Virtualization Manager is designed to migrate a physical system to a virtual environment with zero downtime. The program retains all the programs, files, and user settings by taking an exact image of the hard drive. The created image can be used as a virtual environment with virtualization software like Microsoft, VMware, Oracle, etc.
- P2V Copy – Migrate a physical system to a virtual machine or convert a backup image to a virtual disk. Migrate from 2TB+ physical drive to smaller virtual drive (it’s very helpful as most of hypervisors do not support 2TB+ virtual drives).
- P2V Adjust – Recover the OS startup ability after an unsuccessful virtualization by a 3rd party tool.
- Create VD – Create a virtual disk with a simple wizard.
- Support for Major Virtual Machines – Oracle Virtual Box 4; Microsoft Virtual PC; VMware™ Workstation; VMware™ Fusion.
- Supported Operating Systems – Windows 7 (32/64-bit), Windows Vista (32/64-bit), Windows XP Professional (32/64-bit), Windows XP Home.
