Join Rick Crisci for an in-depth discussion in this video Storage vMotion, part of VMware vSphere 6.5 Essential Training Part 2.
- [Narrator] In this video, I'll introduce…the concept of Storage vMotion…and how it can be used to take a virtual machine…and move it from one datastore to another.…And that's the purpose of Storage vMotion…is to take running VM…and move it from one datastore to another.…And what we're moving is the virtual machine's…set of files.…And this does not result in any downtime whatsoever.…So why would we do a Storage vMotion?…Well maybe one datastore is starting to fill up…and we need to take some virtual machines…and move them to another datastore.…
Or maybe one physical storage device is going to be retired.…And so want to move all of our VMs off of it…without any downtime.…That's the sort of thing,…that we'll use Storage vMotion for.…So let's take a look at what happens…during a Storage vMotion operation.…And in this case, we see we've got a virtual machine…in the middle running on ESXi Host 1.…So that's the host that my virtual machine is running on.…That's like the live state of the host.…
And the files for this host are…
