Join Rick Crisci for an in-depth discussion in this video High Availability (HA) introduction, part of VMware vSphere 6.5 Essential Training Part 2.
- [Instructor] In this video,…we'll learn about vSphere High Availability…and how it can be used to protect our virtual machines…from an ESXi host failure.…So, the purpose of High Availability is…to protect our virtual machines from failures,…but it does not provide 100% uptime.…HA is going to involve virtual machines rebooting,…it's going to involve virtual machines…potentially being down for a little while…if something like an ESXi host failure occurs.…
There is going to be an outage associated with that.…What HA does is, essentially, if an ESXi host fails,…all of the virtual machines running on that host will fail,…but after the fact, after that failure occurs,…High Availability will start rebooting those…virtual machines on different hosts within that cluster.…You can protect your virtual machines…from failures at the host level…or you can even protect your virtual machines…from virtual machine-level failures with High Availability.…
So, it can actually monitor the status…of VMware tools in your virtual machines,…
