"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

EVC does not support mixed CPU vendors.

Never has, so No, I'm afraid not.

Does EVC allow AMD and Intel CPUs to be vMotion compatible?

No. An EVC-enabled cluster only allows CPUs from a single vendor in the cluster. VirtualCenter and vCenter Server do not allow you to add a host from a different vendor into an EVC-enabled cluster.

You can mix them, but EVC, and vMotion (Live Migration) will not work.

Cold Migration (Power Off VMs) is an option.
