Q: Will shared-nothing live migration work with Linux virtual machines in Windows Server 2012?

A: Yes, shared-nothing live migration works on Linux! Nearly all of the Hyper-V features work for both Windows and Linux guest OSs, and Linux is very much a first-class OS for Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012. In this video I created,  I show a SUSE Linux VM being moved with shared-nothing live migration. Other features such as Live Storage Move also work.
