GOAL or METRIC: Failover recovery in less than 15 minutes

RATIONALE: Once virtualization is running efficiently, it must deliver at expected and faster speeds, as well as recover quickly when inevitable failures occur... Failover key metric because it is indicative of how efficiently the infrastructure responds.  Rapid failover response can only be achieved using automated tools that identify failures early, use template-driven responses to common errors, and provide some sort of self-learning, so that trends can be identified and dealt with.  Automation also insulates IT from firedrills
