Part 7 - So You Want to Get Started with Hyper-V? Start here!


About This Video
Quick Migration

Now that we have our cluster set up, let’s take a look at how we can move a virtual machine from one host to another.  In the 2008 version of Hyper-V (not R2), if you want to move a virtual machine from one host to another while it’s running, we use quick migration.  Quick migration causes an outage for the workload we are moving, but as you’ll see from my video, the outage is only a minute or so.  If your plan is to not move your workloads during the business day, quick migration may be good enough for emergencies. If you feel that you are going to be moving workloads during the day pretty often, then live migration will be just what the Dr. ordered.  Live Migration is is part of Server 2008 R2 and I'll show you Live Migration in another blog.  Quick Migration is still included in Windows Server 2008 R2, so you have your choice of Live Migration or Quick Migration.  I typically opt for Live Migration, but just in case, here is Quick Migration.
