So in a failover from a failed node, no data is lost there is just a longer interruption in service compared to live migration. Does the guest know anything happened or does it continue on as if nothing happened? Anything special for a virtual SQL or Exchange server in a failover scenario?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In a failover scenario, the VMs are basically restarted. Once a node is lost, then system state is lost also.
