Hyper-V live migrate to replica
I really do appreciate the live migration of VMs, so that I can seamlessly maintain hosts. I also cherish the async replication between hosts for disaster recovery. What I do miss is the option to live migrate, using the already replicated storage, to the target host. This would save enormous amount of resources.

Veeam can do this. Replica, and then "failover" using the replica as base, replicating the rest of it and switch over. If you need it for a migration scenario and thirty days is enough you can use the demo version.
In a configuration with two servers A and B for each VM I have to choose whether to have the replication from A or B or alternatively the live migration from A to B. It is a strange logic since if B already contains a replica of the VM instead of blocking the migration should use the replication already in place

So basically, planned failover without downtime (using replica combined with live migration). Other replication solutions in the market do provide planned failover without downtime.

Shared Nothing Live Migration would be the feature being requested here?
