I have some VMware VMs in ova format that i want to run on ali cloud.  Is there any way to convert the ova into instance image so i don't have to start from scratch?

You need to get your OVF export from VMware vSphere platform first, then you can use Qemu-img tools to covert it to AliYun format. Then you need to upload them to OSS bucket and "Link" them during Aliyun ECS creation progress.

Hope that helps!
