High availability support for virtual machines

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #8135985.

A computer implemented method, a tangible computer storage medium, and a data processing system provide high availability support for virtual machines in a logical partitioned platform. A monitoring system detect a failure in the virtual machine. Partition management firmware then restarts the virtual machine in a consistency failover image node utilizing a consistency failover image. If a subsequent failure of the virtual machine is detected within a predetermined time, partition management firmware restarts the virtual machine in a boot failover image node utilizing a boot failover image.
