The HA feature allows virtual machines (VMs ) on a single ESX server to be started on another ESX server within the resource pool (which is managed by Virtual Center). If a server fails completely, all of its VMs start on another ESX server within minutes. This reduces the overall provisioning of servers to minutes instead of days.
