From technologica point of view - there is no reason why it can't be done.
SUSE HA supports postgresql replication via a master/slave resource. Also it can start & stop systemd services, so you just need to figure out the SUMA config directories and move them to a shared storage.

From support point of view - most probably SUSE can refuse to provide support for such setup, so you should plan and test rebuild of the system from backup.

Another approach could be to use VmWare shadow technology to have an exact copy of the VM.
