Last month at the MS TechED conference MS was super proud of the fact
that Hyper-V R2 now supports live migration. I thought it was nice of
them to finally catch up. It has been a feature in Xen for at least 3
years. Longer in VMware ESX. The funnier bit is that VMware now has
the fancy fault tolerence in V4/vSphere and it will likely be released
before Hyper-V R2. Hyper-V R2 is not actually out yet. It is currently
available as a release candidate.
