Using Live Migration to Migrate a Kernel Zone

Live migration enables you to migrate a kernel zone in the running state to a new kernel zone host. Because the memory state of a kernel zone is copied to the migrated guest, a live migration results in a brief outage time that is not noticeable to most applications or to most end users.

You can use live migration for any applications that require a minimum of downtime and where applications must remain in the running state.
