Did you know that it is possible to bring virtual machines running in Oracle VirtualBox over into VMware’s virtualization software? As more and more customers are making the transition, we get asked over and over how to move the VMs over.

This video discusses and demonstrates how to import an Oracle VirtualBox virtual machine into VMware Fusion, Workstation or Player.

To import a virtual machine running in Oracle VirtualBox, you must export the virtual machine from VirtualBox to an Open Virtualization Format Archive (.ova file) and then import this file to VMware Fusion, Workstation, or Player.

For additional information, see VMware Knowledge Base article Importing a virtual machine running in an Oracle VirtualBox to VMware Fusion, Workstation, or Player (2053864).
