Join Rick Crisci for an in-depth discussion in this video Demo: Fault tolerance, part of VMware vSphere 6.5 Essential Training Part 2.
- [Instructor] In this video I'll explain fault tolerance…and how it can be used…to provide zero downtime protection…for critical virtual machines.…That's really what fault tolerance is all about.…It's about giving you 100% uptime…with no data loss, no transaction loss…for critical virtual machines,…by mirroring that virtual machine onto a secondary host.…So there's gonna be multiple running instances…for that virtual machine that ensures…that they're always going to be exactly identical…and there's essentially what we call a hot standby.…
There's another copy of this VM running…on another host, ready to take over at all times.…So if a host fails, the primary VM will…immediately failover to the secondary VM.…And then a new secondary will be spawned…to re-protect that virtual machine,…just in case there's another failure that occurs after that.…And we can even place the secondary VM…at a different datastore…to provide an additional level of protection.…
So let's take a look at how this works.…Here's my primary VM running on host ESXi01,…
