EXPLANATION

VMware's High Availability (known to us lazy people as HA) allows guest VMs to restart on another host in the event of host failure. For example, if you have two hosts, both with VMs, and the first host has a hardware failure and becomes unresponsive, the VMs that were running on the failed host restart on the other host (provided it has the capacity to run them).
