Difference between VDI, VDH and VMDK

  • VDI is the native format of Virtual Box, VDH is of Microsoft Virtual PC, VMDK is of VMWare.
  • All three support dynamically allocated storage and snapshot.
  • All three can be converted to other formats.
  • VMDK has an additional capability of splitting the storage file into files less than 2 GB each, which is useful if your file system has a small file size limit.
