VMWare Fault Tolerance for Enterprise Online
A server that is connected to our cloud can access VMware Enterprise plus Fault Tolerance. This enables a server that exists on a host within our cloud to run from any other host in our cloud.
In the event of catastrophic hardware failure or system failure, your virtual server can be at risk if your private or hybrid cloud does not have capacity to absorb that failure.
By connecting private or hybrid cloud hosts to our VMware Cloud platform, or by hosting your virtual server on our cloud, and taking the option of VMware Fault Tolerance, you minimise the risk of virtual servers being affected by a major hardware or system issue.
Fault Tolerance allows a virtual server to immediately migrate to new compute resources, in the event of VMware detecting failure or performance issues with the hardware you are using. It also can detect whether a virtual server is having issues at the operating system (e.g. Microsoft Windows Blue Screen) and reboot your virtual server automatically.
VMware is a market leader in enterprise-level cloud architecture. The Fault Tolerant service is designed to automatically manage virtual server's operating systems and resources, to keep applications online with as little interference and administration required as possible.
