VMworld 2012: Session VSP1549 – Into vMotion: Architectures, Performance, Best Practices, Future
vMotion and storage vMotion are key, widely adopted technologies which enable the live migration of virtual machines on the vSphere platform. These features enable critical datacenter workflows, including automated load-balancing with DRS and Storage DRS, hardware maintenance, and the permanent migration of workloads. Each vSphere release introduces new vMotion functionality, increased reliability and significant performance improvements.
In this session we will present a deep dive into the latest vMotion and Storage vMotion technologies, including architecture overviews, best practices, and detailed performance studies. We will also present proposed vMotion future technologies, focusing on reference architectures and the enablement of VMware partner ecosystem technologies.
