Re: Live Migration From VMware to KVM?

That's not possible (yet), but you can shutdown VM in vmware and import the vmdks to a KVM host which will be mostly a manual or semi-automated exercise. It will get tricky if there are multiple vmdks (differential disks) which will require you to coalesce those vmdks before you import them to KVM.

A migrate feature may be implemented in future, for example, oVirt community have done this way:
