Thanks for the interest Simon, the feature has two HA provider (plugins, one for simulator
and another for KVM+NFS) that can be used as reference implementations.

We are very excited about this feature set, as it adds some really important features for
KVM.

We don't use NFS, so I think our goal will be seeing what we can contribute to include Ceph
on the supported storage list.

Subject: [DISCUSS] Host HA in 4.11

All,


Few months ago I had started discussion on Host HA for CloudStack and given 4.10 is voted
and to be announced with master branch cut I would like to re-kick discussion around reviewing
and acceptance of the feature that is pending since Feb 2017.


To briefly share some key points:

- This feature is disabled by default and provides zone/cluster/host level kill switches

- This brings in a reliable way to fence (power off) and recover (reboot) a host

- Allows implementation of HA provider plugin specific to a hypervisor and storage stack,
by default we've implemented a plugin for hosts that have KVM+NFS
