    Hello,

    We use VMware for hosting our cPanel, and VMware developped a very cool feature, called vMotion, this feature let you migrate your VM to another server without any downtime and you can combine this with VMware DRS (Distributed Resource Scheduler), it means your hypervisor will migrate automatically your heavy loaded VM to a server with low load to balance the charge between your server, you don't have to do anything, everything is automatic.


    So the idea will be to copy these featues for a cPanel usage.

    Instead of migrating VM, cPanel will be able to migrate account to another cPanel without downtime.

    Manually or automatically, as an example, if 2 websites got a huge peak on a same cPanel server, cPanel will move one of them to another cPanel with low charge automatically.

    Maybe we don't need yet the part "automatic" but if we can get an action from WHM to migrate an account to another cPanel without downtime it will be very useful.


    How are you migrating an account to another cPanel server today ?

    Hello Michael,

    Thanks for your answer, HA and replication are great too, but actually I'm looking for something who can help me to move 1 account cPanel to another cPanel.

    My example, I got 2 cPanel server with differents accounts.
    On my cPanel1 I got 2 big clients who use a lot of traffic, ram or cpu, my cPanel2 is hosting only small account with few charge, so the idea will be to migrate 1 account from cPanel1 to cPanel2 to balance the charge.
    I dont want 2 cPanel with the exact configuration/account.

    I'm looking for an easy way to migrate 1 account (DNS,WEB,DB,Email,etc) to another cPanel server like VMotion.
