VMCL is the first free high availability software for VMware environment.
It manages virtual machines failover when a physical host crashes
VMCL has a feature actually not available in any other commercial product: it decides which available physical host has to start faulty virtual machines depending on specific parameters (free memory, CPU usage) to be respected and considering a defined priority (note: not yet implemented).

The whole thing is based on some file present inside one of shared vmfs  volumes

When a physical host is faulty VMCL will decide which remained physical host has to mount faulted host quorum and to start which virtual machine.
