VM host failure recovery

  • Services: Compute
  • Release Date: March 15, 2021

When the underlying infrastructure of a Standard or GPU VM instance fails, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure automatically attempts to recover the instance and restore the VM on a healthy host. The VM failure is detected within one minute of occurrence. If the host cannot be recovered immediately, a healthy move occurs. The process of migrating to and restarting on a healthy host automatically begins within five minutes. For more information, see VM Recovery Due to Infrastructure Failure.
