what is VMware VMotion and Storage VMotion

VMotion, also known as live migration, is a feature of
ESX/ESXi and vCenter Server that allows a running virtual machine to be moved from one physical
host to another physical host without having to power off the virtual machine.This migration
between two physical hosts occurs with no downtime and with no loss of network connectivity to
the virtual machine.

Storage VMotion moves the storage for a
running virtual machine between datastores. Much like VMotion, Storage VMotion works without
downtime to the virtual machine

Hello Naresh,
Good notes about the VMotion.
Would like to add one point ..
VMotion requires common Storage pool for the server and the migration happens only between the certain family of processors.
