The Importance of Live Migration (and What Happens When You Don’t Have It) … Part 2/2


 

VMware VMotion Live Migration Moves Virtual Machines with Zero Downtime
We repeat the virtual machine migration shown in the Microsoft Quick Migration video above,

but this time using VMware VMotion to show that true live migration avoids any user downtime and broken network connections.

 

The vMotion option is only available in the Enterprise version and very expensive.

Is it an optional feature, or a must have one ? You’ll have to decide if you can live with or without it…
