With the continuing adoption of server virtualization technology, customers want to use the flexibility provided by Virtual Machines (VMs) to improve application availability. How to move applications within a server cluster or data center is well understood today. However, transparent mobility across data centers requires architectures that balance workload mobility, disaster avoidance, and disaster recovery objectives while coordinating workload and storage movements across a routed network core using flexible LAN extensions. This paper describes an application mobility architecture that brings together critical products and technologies from Cisco, NetApp and VMWare to deliver a robust, scalable, and resilient solution.
