The standard way to have HA for oVirt engine is to set it up as a
self-hosted-engine and have more than one host in the hosted-engine

We do know that there are people doing HA using other means, based on external
HA software (heartbeat), but that's more expensive (in hardware, work,
and perhaps software, depends on what you use) - I'd suggest doing that
only if your organization already has in-house expertise and experience
with such software.

Good luck and best regards,
