If your storage is on NAS/SAN then yes, you can migrate virtual machines
between homogeneous hosts in the pool, or even heterogeneous hosts (from
the same vendor) if you configure "CPU levelling" appropriately.

<Noobie question> And if I'm not using a nas/san is there a benefit to creating and using a resource pool between homogeneous servers?
