How to enable high availability for your Oracle VMs
Owing to the nature of Oracle workloads and the need to pin them to processor cores, workloads will be automatically moved in the event of a host failure only if you've enabled the high availability (HA) feature on each VM.
If you do not enable the HA feature for your VMs, if a failure occurs, UKCloud will need to manually move the Oracle VM to a new host, at which point you'll be notified to restart your application.
This article describes how to enable HA for your Oracle VMs.
