We're excited to announce the availability of the Amazon EC2 VM Import Connector vApp for VMware vCenter. The Connector is a virtual appliance that works with VMware vCenter making it easier to import your preexisting virtual machines (VMs) to Amazon EC2. Amazon EC2 customers can use a familiar graphical user interface to select a virtual machine (VM) and specify 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.

For more information about using the VM Import Connector for VMware vCenter, please see the Amazon EC2 User Guide. For more information about Amazon EC2 VM Import, please see the VM Import web page.
