Move supports migration from the following sources to targets, where first platform being the source and second platform being the target.

  • VMware ESXi to Nutanix AHV
  • VMware ESXi on legacy infrastructure to VMware ESXi on Nutanix
  • Microsoft Hyper-V to Nutanix AHV
  • Microsoft Hyper-V to VMware ESXi on Nutanix
