Executive Summary

Intel IT and Intel's Digital Enterprise Group, End User Platform Integration, conducted Proof-of-Concept (PoC) testing of live migration using Intel Virtualization Technology FlexMigration (Intel VT FlexMigration) assist and the Enhanced VMotion feature of VMware ESX 3.5U2. It successfully completed manual and automated live migrations of Virtual Machines (VMs) containing complex enterprise applications between two- and four-socket servers based on two generations of Intel Core microarchitecture with differing instruction sets. Its testing showed that live VM migration using Intel VT FlexMigration assist and VMware Enhanced VMotion is robust enough for hosting Intel IT business applications in a mixed production environment.
