VM Migration with VMware vMotion: How Does It Work?
No matter what kind of business you are running, even a short amount of downtime can cost your company a fortune. Unexpected downtime is nearly impossible to avoid, but you can still get prepared for a wide range of scenarios that are likely to happen occasionally. These include such downtime causes as maintenance, moves, planned power outages, and so on. To help you avoid downtime, VMware offers vSphere vMotion. This technology allows for live migration of virtual machines (VMs) without interruption in their availability. This turns VMware vMotion into a solid element for creating a dynamic, automated datacenter with self-optimization capabilities.
