>>> Crosby said that it's possible to move a Xen virtual machine "so that the guest is only non-responsive to the outside world for tens of miliseconds."
That sounds great, but I'm not sure I believe it. Wouldn't it take at least a few seconds to transfer an image to another box over 100 megabit ethernet?
Also, I read very briefly in a comment somewhere else that next-gen chips from Intel and AMD would allow for full virtualization without a modified guest, just as mainframes have done for decades. Does anyone know more about this and when they will come out? Will Xen support them right off the bat?
