Microsoft has been steadily improving MVMC, so much so, that in April of this year, when version 2.0 released, a Microsoft partner decided to drop their own solution. The partner, Xtreme, had developed its solution due to missing pieces in MVMC that customers were requesting. With version 3.0 released, Microsoft is intent on delivering a tool that can easily migrate on-premises workloads to the Cloud.
