Please share the available options to migrate from largescale (2000+instances) xenserver/cloudstack to kvm/openstack.

What have you looked at so far? This is a great place to come for answers to specific technical questions, but a less good place to come for original research.

Well, All i got was migrating the instances one by one from xen to kvm and then start them in openstack. But just curious to know if anyone tried a better way for large scale migrations.

@Beny can you share the solution's step that you used one by one instances migration from xen to kvm and then start them in openstack. Thanks

@wahid sorry for the delayed comment. In cloudstack, you have the options to convert root disk snapshot to a template/image. And the template can be downloaded into a VHD image. we can upload the VHD image to openstack and start a VM. pretty straight forward and it worked for me.
