vSphere 5.1 - vMotion Enhancements

Enhancements to VMotion in Vsphere 5.1 provide a new level of ease and flexibility for live virtual machine migrations. Vsphere 5.1 now enables users to combine VMotion and VMware vSphere storage vMotion (storage vMotion) into one operation.The combined migration copies both the virtual machine memory its and disk over the network to the destination host.In smaller environments, the ability to simultaneously migrate both memory and storage enables virtual machines to be migrated between hosts that do not have shared storage.

In larger environments ,this capability enables virtual machines to be migrated between clusters that do not have a common set of datastores.
