  • DRS
  • High Availability
  • Fault Tolerance
  • Distributed Virtual Switching



EXPLANATION

VMware's Fault Tolerance (FT) feature allows you to protect a VM with an exact copy on another host machine. All of the changes are synced to the copy, so if the host fails in any way, vSphere will activate this copy. The effect is instantaneous, and allows you to provide constant uptime for mission-critical VMs.
