Abstract:

Continuous replication and live migration of Virtual Machines VMs are two vital tools in a virtualized environment, but they are resource-expensive. Continuously replicating a VMs checkpointed state to a backup host maintains high-availability HA of the VM despite host failures, but checkpoint replication can generate significant network traffic. This report describes how to replicate VMs for HA using resources efficiently, and to migrate VMs fast, with minimal execution disruption and using resources efficiently.
