Alleviating Constraints with Resource Pools and Live Migration Using Enhanced VMotion
Until recently, Live Migration using VMotion has not been possible between different generations of processors, resulting in islands of resource pools in the data centers. Intel's VT FlexMigration Assist and VMware's Enhanced VMotion capabilities help reduce the number of resource pools significantly, and help IT managers accelerate the adoption of new usage models like load balancing and business continuity, and also improve application/service uptimes. This session demonstrates the Enhanced VMotion and Intel VT FlexMigration capabilities with multi-generation Intel Xeon processor resource clusters. Additionally, it also provides a step-by-step guide to enabling the resource clusters in VMware ESX3.5U2 for Enhanced VMotion.
