COS Ova Converter

COS Ova Converter is a simple interface to convert the OVA images to GCE image in a GCP project and also exports the GCE image to OVA. It is available as a Docker image.

The main motivation is to provide a simple tool for handling the OVA images during the COS preloading process using the COS Customizer as it exclusively deals with the GCE images.
