VMware has been the industry leader in virtualization technologies for the past decade and has brought to the data center several new features that enable faster and better provisioning of business-critical applications. One of the features is the VMware VMotion' technology that allows virtual machine mobility between two VMware vSphere servers instantaneously with no application downtime. The capability to migrate applications with no perceivable effect to the end user enables IT departments to develop new and improved methods for provisioning and maintaining data center infrastructure. IT departments can now perform hardware maintenance, consolidate CPU and memory resources, or migrate mission-critical applications from a data center when necessary without affecting the Service-Level Agreements (SLA) of the applications.
