P2V (physical to virtual) is the migration of an operating system (OS), application programs and data from a computer's main hard disk to a virtual machine or a disk partition.Migration can be a tedious and uncertain process, especially if the new environment contains substantially different hardware than the old.

Many virtualization platforms today include built-in P2V tools
