Thinking of Choosing Virtualized High Availability Software Over a Continuous Availability Solution?

By | Application Availability, Blog / Post, High Availability

So were 50% of Stratus customers until they learned this…

In a recent survey of over 500 Stratus customers, 50% responded that they were also considering virtualized high availability software during their buying process. “Aren’t high availability software solutions good enough?”, “Can’t we just have a good DR system in place?”, and “Do we really need continuous availability?” are just a few questions that come to mind when exploring availability options.

Does this sound familiar? Here is what our customers learned as they compared options during their decision process: Read More

The High Availability Server Journey: From Backup to Fault Tolerant

99% sounds pretty complete in theory, but imagine if only 99% of your orders shipped. For IT, 99% availability translates into 1 hour and 41 minutes of downtime per week.  That’s about twice the downtime a 99.99% availability solution has in a year (52 minutes 33.6 seconds)! This is why a high availability server is a must.

For 54% of business surveyed, anything below 99.99% availability is unacceptable1

Look at the availability solutions in this infographic to find out how downtime affects organizations, calculate your current yearly downtime risk, and decide what availability protection level your systems, applications and data require.

  1. This High Availability infographic depicts the current high availability options in the marketplace from stand-by servers with back-up to fault-tolerant servers. It includes high-availability statistics, cost of downtime estimates, complexity, costs, ROI and average uptime for standard servers, back-up, continuous replication, virtualization, HA Software and fault tolerant servers.

ESG Solution Showcase: Stratus ftServer Enhances VMware High Availability

Increasing the availability of VMware virtual machines is about “and” instead of “or”

Organizations today are more dependent on their IT resources than ever. As a result, IT teams are transforming their data centers through server virtualization, even as they face increasing pressure to meet tight SLAs, increase agility, and reduce costs. IT infrastructures built upon VMware can increase the availability of the systems that matter most to organizations (without requiring any changes to long-term IT strategy or day-to-day IT management) by utilizing Stratus ftServer platforms as their hosts.

Fault-Tolerant Computing: The Leading Edge of High Availability

This Light Reading webinar discusses the importance of resiliency and high availability to communications applications. As applications and network functions are virtualized, the need for resiliency becomes even more critical if applications are deployed on less physically reliable white box servers. Implementation of fault-tolerant computing at the application level can be costly and risky, and sometimes not possible, until now.

Achieving availability and resiliency in OpenStack Telco networks

OpenStack has been selected as the cloud platform of choice by most Telcos for NFV. While OpenStack supports basic levels of availability it does not support service continuity and stateful fault tolerance. This is a major concern for the Telcos. By inserting a Virtualized Cloud Resilience Layer that transparently brings Telco reliability to any cloud application, Telcos can use OpenStack with the confidence that any application can be deployed with selectable levels of availability, including stateful fault tolerant with geo-redundancy, without required code changes.
