Hybrid environment enables live migration of VMs

The vCloud Extender module seamlessly extends your on-premises VMware environment with Virtual Datacenter, allowing flexible live migration of workloads in just a few clicks and with less than three minutes of downtime into the cloud. In an initial synchronization, the affected VM is replicated to the Virtual Datacenter. Regular delta synchronization ensures that the VM copy in the VDC remains up-to-date. During the cut-over, the on-premises VM is stopped, one last delta synchronization is performed and resumed immediately in the virtual data center. Without data loss and with minimal downtime.

Further information can be found in our blog article about vCloud Extender.
