Virtual Machines(VMs) refers to the softwareimplementation of a computer that runs its own OS andapplications as if it was a physical machine(PM). Live migrationof VMs allows a server administrator to move a running virtualmachine or application among different physical machineswithout disconnecting the client or application. Total migrationtime and downtime are two key performance metrics that theclients of a VM service care about the most, because they areconcerned about service degradation and the duration that theservice is completely unavailable.
