Whether V2V or P2V migration is supported


The desktop solution supports both virtual to virtual (V2V) and physical to virtual (P2V) migration. Huawei's hConvertor is a system-level migration tool that can migrate mainstream Linux and Windows system platforms. It uses the B/S architecture, which facilitates cloud system deployment. The source end can be either a physical or virtual host, and the destination end is Huawei's cloud platform. Relay migration is available.

Whether automatic migration is supported
When the CPU usage of a computing blade is high, the system can automatically migrate some of its VMs to other blades whose CPU usage is low. When the CPU usage of multiple compute nodes is low, the system can also migrate their VMs to just a few blades and power off the idle ones. The system can automatically migrate VMs at a user-specified time and set a speed limit of 1000 Mbit/s or 100 Mbit/s for vNICs. The system cannot automatically migrate VMs based on network traffic or storage I/O throughput.

Migration modes supported by SmartTier
See section "Configuring a SmartTier Policy" in SmartTier Feature Guide, which is available at http://support.huawei.com/ehedex/hdx.do?docid=DOC1000084404&id=stier_config_tier_policy_v3r3c00l.

Whether VMs can be migrated across clusters
The desktop solution does not support cross-cluster VM migration. In Huawei's desktop solution, a single cluster supports 100 servers, and each server can house up to 250 VMs. This ensures the reliability of VM clusters even without cross-cluster VM migration.
