With the update of the Open Telekom Cloud, companies can flexibly convert virtual machines from the Elastic Cloud Server range. With immediate effect it is now possible to move virtual machines directly from one Dedicated Host Server (DeH) to another. In addition, virtual machines can be moved from the shared environment to a DeH. This now makes it possible to move workloads from a shared environment to a dedicated one and thus react spontaneously, for example, if the license conditions of software operated in the cloud change. Similarly, virtual machines based on the Xen hypervisor can also be transferred to a KVM-based equivalent.
