Many companies are now completely reliant on IT for everyday operations, and as such the availability and uptime of these systems is critically important. Loss of service equates to loss of productivity which, depending on the severity, can have a potentially huge impact for an organization. This is important as the idea of the datacenter grows to include distributed computing at remote locations such as stores, manufacturing sites, or satellite offices.
To ensure that the IT systems are highly available it is important to design and build-in the required levels of resiliency and redundancy into the architecture from end to end.
We’ve just published a white paper on best practices on how to build a highly available solution, which you can download here. We’ve also made an infographic, with some quick top tips.
