HA creates a replica for the vRealize Operations Manager master node and protects the analytics cluster against the loss of a node. In this post we will see on How to configure High Availability in vRealize Operations Manager.

With HA, data stored on the master node is always 100% backed up on the replica node. To enable HA, you must have at least one data node deployed, in addition to the master node.
