Konveyor Forklift

Rehost your Virtual Machines (VMs) to KubeVirt

Migrate virtual machines to Kubernetes at scale with the open source tool Forklift. Whether you are rehosting a few or hundreds of VMs to KubeVirt, Forklift helps you minimize downtime when you lift and shift these applications.

Migration Analytics

Validate the compatibility of your virtual machine before executing your migration

Warm migrations

Reduce downtime by using warm migration capabilities, which will pre-copy your data before finalizing your migration

Migration at Scale

Migrate small or large amount of virtual machines at once.

Why Forklift

Forklift provides a simplistic way to migrate your virtual machines at scale to Kubernetes from traditional hypervisors like VMware and Red Hat Virtualization. Forklift is based on core linux v2v technologies that have been proven for years.
