If it's a 'five nines' service, then more than one of the same service exists either as a cluster, an active failover, or a DR site. In the case of failure the backup automatically takes over and someone is notified.

If the primary service falls over for an unknown reason, bringing it back up automatically is almost always the wrong thing to do.
