vSphere vMotion Enhancements

In vSphere 6.0 vMotion capabilities have been enhanced by enabling users to perform live migration of virtual machines across virtual switches, vCenter Server systems, and long distances of up to 150ms RTT. vSphere administrators now can migrate across vCenter Server systems, enabling migration from a Windows version of vCenter Server to vCenter Server Appliance or vice versa, depending on specific requirements. Previously, this was difficult and caused a disruption to virtual machine management. It can now be accomplished seamlessly without losing historical data about the virtual machine.

When a virtual machine is migrated across vCenter Server instances, its data and settings are preserved.
This includes the virtual machine UUID, event, alarm, task history, as well as resource settings including shares, reservations, and limits. VMware vSphere High Availability (vSphere HA) and vSphere DRS settings are also retained, including affinity and antiaffinity rules, automation level, start-up priority, and host isolation response. This maintains a seamless experience as the virtual machine moves throughout the infrastructure. MAC addresses are also preserved as they are moved across vCenter Server instances. When a virtual machine is moved out of a vCenter Server instance, the MAC address is added to an internal blacklist to ensure that a duplicate MAC is not generated.

Increasing the latency thresholds for vSphere vMotion enables migration across larger geographic spans,
targeting intracontinental distances. This feature plays a key role for data center migrations, disaster avoidance scenarios, and multisite load balancing.
