Join Rick Crisci for an in-depth discussion in this video vMotion, part of VMware vSphere 6.5 Essential Training Part 2.
- [Narrator] In this video, I'll explain…the basic concepts of vMotion…and how it can be used to take a…running virtual machine and move it…from one ESXi host to another.…And that's the purpose of vMotion.…We have virtual machines that are running on one ESXi host,…and maybe we need to do some sort…of physical maintenance on that host,…like add more memory or maybe we need to load balance.…For example, maybe one of our ESXi hosts…is very heavily utilized,…and we wanna take some running virtual machines,…and move them off that heavily utilized host…to a host that has less virtual machines on it.…
That's what we use vMotion for,…is to take a running VM,…move it from one physical ESXi host to another,…with no service outage.…So let's take a look at how vMotion works.…And in this example, we see a virtual machine in purple,…running on ESXi Host 1.…And this is where the live state…of our virtual machine is running.…So maybe we need to take down Host 1 for a memory upgrade,…and we wanna move our virtual machine…to another host using vMotion.…
