Yes, but I agree that having *one* import UI for any kind of virtualization
solution would be cool.

No, you can export the vm to the export domain, and then detach the export
domain from one environment and attach to another, where you can import
the vm.

Another way is to detach entire data domain from one environment, and attach
it to another environment, where you can import the vms without copying
anything, assuming that you can leave the domain attached to the new

We support upload/download of disk snapshots. If you have a vm with one disk
without snapshots, you can download the disk from one environment, and upload
it to the new environment, and then attach it to existing or new vm. We plan to
support upload/download of entire vms in the future.

Can you share more details why do you need to move vms from one environment
to another regularly?
