VMCL Beta 1

 

 

VMCL is the first free high availability software for VMware environment, It's based on famous Linux-HA cluster software.
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.

The whole thing is based on a quorum disk (a VMDK formatted ext3) created for every physical host, where every virtual machine configuration file (.vmx) is copied and synchronized.

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.
