What’s the coolest thing about windows 2012? Virtual machine mobility

One of the coolest features included with Windows Server 2012 is the Hyper-V Network Virtualization capability. This feature allows you to move your virtual machines from data center to data center, or from data center to cloud provider while keeping the IP addressing information that has already been assigned to the virtual machine.


Virtual machine mobility is a key to really taking advantage of the cloud. Without this kind of mobility, you remain stuck in the “stateful” world of the traditional data center. Virtual machine mobility allows you to decouple the workload from the underlying network, compute and storage infrastructure that supports it.

Total freedom in the cloud… what Virtual mobility is all about…

But if you have Windows 2012 and System Center – then you have a Microsoft Private Cloud.
