VMotion between Data Centers—a VMware and Cisco Proof of Concept

Last year, Cisco and VMware began the task of trying to solve these long distance VMotion issues with the target of seamlessly migrating a VM between two datacenters separated by a reasonable distance. The joint Cisco/VMware lab in San Jose has run number of tests over varying distances (simulated with reels of optic fiber) as a proof of concept. We will demonstrate this proof of concept at Cisco Live this week in San Francisco. The demo as it stands incorporates a distance of 80km (50 miles). That’s around 400us latency each way over fiber or a round trip just under 1ms.
