How to see if Quick Migration is right for your workload

I saw humor in this article comparing VMware VMotion with Microsoft Quick Migration:

So, the best thing to do is to test the applications that will eventually run in virtual servers with Quick Migration and see what happens. Then, in a physical server with the installed application, run it and use it to perform an action. Mid-way through the process, disconnect the network cable, count to 10, restore it, and see what happens.

Is Quick Migration “good enough” for your workload?  Don’t count on it.
