What is the difference between live migration using SCVMM versus MOVE option in hyper-v 2012R2

    Question

  • What is the difference between live migration using SCVMM versus MOVE option in hyper-v 2012R2?

    In terms of technology?  I know that a snap is created in SCVMM at the source so that if a migration gets interrupted the snap enables a roll back.  Is this a full snap or just changes during the migration??,.. please explain.  Trying to figure out how much space is used in a live migration of SCVMM versus MOVE option?

  • both are a live migration in terms of technology.

    the snaps as you call it maybe is more the save state if you do a quick migration where the VM goes into a saved state which at least need the space of the amount of RAM you gave to the VMs as the Memory state need to be saved to disk.

  • Isn't this exactly the same (and SCVMM does simply initiate Hyper-V move)?
