A virtual machine is an independent server module (operating system + application) that generally run in independent servers. But with server virtualization, it is possible to run multiple virtual machines in a single (high capacity) server. In this process, each virtual machine is running on its own server with dedicated resources.

Virtual to virtual migration is the process of moving virtual machines or other business elements from VMware to HyperV and vice versa.
