If you are using the Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000V (CSR 1000V) virtual router in autonomous mode, then you may want to use the GUI-driven migration tool to migrate those instances to Cisco Catalyst 8000V (C8000V) instance. This migration uses AWS CloudFormation template based automation to spin-up a new instance of Catalyst 8000V and copy the configuration files from the CSR 1000V instance. You can batch migrate up to ten CSR 1000V instances in one go. The migrated instances will include the enhanced "secure object storage" feature in C8000V that stores all sensitive configuration information in an encrypted file system inside the VM. See the chapter in the Catalyst 8000V Configuration Guide for AWS for more details.
