VCS supports cold, warm, and live migration, also known as domain migration, for Oracle VM Server for SPARC guest domains.
Domain migration enables you to migrate a guest domain from one host system to another host system. The system on which the migration is initiated is the source system. The system to which the domain is migrated is the target system.
While a migration operation is in progress, the domain that you want to migrate transfers from the source system to the migrated domain on the target system.
The domain migration until Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.0 release is a warm migration. A warm migration is where the domain that you want to migrate enters a suspended state before the migration.
The Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.1 introduces live migration, which provides performance improvements that enable an active domain to migrate while it continues to run.
In addition to live migration, you can migrate bound or inactive domains. This migration is a cold migration.
