NetJapan's virtual standby availability solution vStandby creates and maintains dormant virtual replicas of physical and virtual machines. The standby virtual replicas are created directly on the ESXi host and are kept current using scheduled asynchronous incremental snapshots. vStandby ensures successful start-up of standby virtual machines when switchover becomes necessary.
