What is a Microsoft Quick Migration and how does it help a virtualization administrator?

Quick Migration is a feature of Microsoft’s Hyper-V virtualization platform. With Quick Migration, you can move running virtual machines from one host to another host server with minimal downtime. This feature is comparable to VMware’s VMotion except Quick Migration, in its current incarnation, is not as quick as VMotion (VMotion is about 1 second vs Quick Migration of about 5-20 second)
