Paragon released Paragon Virtualization Manager 12 Professional that enables you to migrate your PC system to a virtual environment (P2V) or vice versa (V2P) with zero downtime.
Since most hypervisors do not support 2TB+ virtual drives, the 12th edition also allows migration from 2TB+ physical drives to a smaller virtual drive.
The updated Connect VD technology with non-destructive and snapshot mode assures data management and data transfer between different types of virtual machines, and allows migration from one virtual environment to another (V2V).
Connect a virtual disk as if it were an ordinary physical disk and open up all physical-disk functionality in a virtual environment. Use a read-only mode or a special read/write mode that creates a snapshot and applies all changes after the snapshot was made to test all configurations without destroying your virtual source drive.
Virtualization Manager 12 Professional is compatible with products of all popular modern virtualization software providers, such as Microsoft, VMware and Oracle, and supports major virtual machines, including Oracle Virtual Box 4, Microsoft Virtual PC, VMware Workstation and VMware Fusion.
