The Amazon EC2 VM Import Connector extends the capabilities of VMware vCenter to provide a familiar graphical user interface you can use to import your preexisting virtual machines (VMs) to Amazon EC2. Using the Connector, importing a virtual machine is as simple as selecting a virtual machine (VM) from your vSphere infrastructure, and speciying the AWS Region, Availability Zone, operating system, instance size, security group, and VPC details (if desired) into which the VM should be imported. Once the VM has been imported, you can launch it as an instance from the AWS Management Console, and immediately take advantage of all the features of Amazon EC2.
- 10/03/2014 : A new version of the AWS Connector is available as part of the AWS Management Portal for vCenter.
- We suggest that you install the AWS Management Portal for vCenter to benefit from the new version, which includes a new user interface that is integrated into vCenter, an improved import experience when migrating VMs, single sign-on support, the ability to view and manage EC2 instances, integrated monitoring and permissions, and more.
