Migrate from VMWare to HyperX due to Docker for Windows


(Packelend) #1

Unfortunately Hyper-V isn’t compatible with VMWare and VirtualBox so either you use Hyper-V and Docker for Windows or you deactivate Hyper-V and use Docker-Machine.
Luckily there are tools to convert from VMWare to Hyper-V and vice versa but I cannot tell how reliable they are.
If I want to continue with Docker for Windows I need to convert my other fee VMs. Does anyone has made a good experience with the above-referenced tool?

I would like to avoid experimenting in this matter as besides the clear advantages of Docker compared to a virtual machine I still have some desktop only application what cannot be replaced by docker (server) based applications.
