Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Live Migration in Windows Server 2008 R2 works the same as how Vmotion works in ESX. The VMs should be in a cluster with shared storage. Once the migration is initiated, an active memory copy is done, the final clean up finished, and a sub-second switch over is completed.
