VMware Fault Tolerance™Maximize uptime in your data center by enabling fault tolerance.
VMware Fault Tolerance provides zero downtime, zero data loss and continuous availability for your applications, without the cost and complexity of traditional hardware or software clustering solutions. VMware Fault Tolerance is leading edge technology that provides continuous availability for applications in the event of server failures, by creating a live shadow instance of a virtual machine that is in virtual lockstep with the primary instance. By allowing instantaneous failover between the two instances in the event of hardware failure, VMware Fault Tolerance eliminates even the smallest of data loss or disruption.
VMware Fault Tolerance features:
Ongoing Monitoring of active virtual machines to detect any arising Software or Hardware errors.
Automatic restart of any virtual machines which are located on any physical server within the cluster resource pool at detection of errors.
Protect applications against errors of the operating system by automatically restarting virtual machines on detection of a fault.
