Description Adrian Gibanel Btactic 2012-03-19 10:20:37 EDT
Description of problem:

  Description of features is not accurate.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

  Check Overview from Part I. Chapter 1.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Part I . Before you Begin
2. Chapter 1
3. Overview
Actual results:
  "High availability to quickly configure virtual machines for fault tolerance."

Expected results:
  Either the phrase should be rewritten or it should have an astherisc that points a note.

This note should explain the differences between:

Ovirt's High Availability
Ovirt's Fault Tolerance
Vmware's Hight Availability
Vmware's Fault Tolerance

Additional information:

This bug arises when someone used to Vmware products tries to use oVirt and specifically the Vmware's Fault Tolerance capabilities.

It would seem that oVirt does not support Vmware's Fault Tolerance capabilites yet according to: http://www.mail-archive.com/users@ovirt.org/msg00091.html .

VMware Defination of Fault Tolerance is wrong and I do think oVirt support Fault Tolerance under the most accepted defintations but since VMware is the current market leader so it might be a good idea to clearly define what each feature does.

setting target release to current version for consideration and review. please do not push non-RFE bugs to an undefined target release to make sure bugs are reviewed for relevancy, fix, closure, etc.
