We present, discuss and evaluate a hybrid approach of live migrating a virtual machine across hosts in a Gigabit LAN. Our hybrid approach takes the best of both the traditional methods of live migration - pre and post-copy. In pre-copy, the cpu state and memory is transferred before spawning the VM on destination host whereas the latter is exactly opposite and spawns the VM on destination right after transferring processor state. In our approach, in addition to processor state, we bundle a lot… CONTINUE READING
