Understanding live migration

Live migration is the process of moving a running virtual machine instance to another node in the cluster without interruption to the virtual workload or access. This can be a manual process, if you select a virtual machine instance to migrate to another node, or an automatic process, if the virtual machine instance has a LiveMigrate eviction strategy and the node on which it is running is placed into maintenance.

NFS shared volumes are the only shared data volume type supported for live migration in container-native virtualization 2.0.
