Protecting OpenStack Cloud Applications from Downtime

Shouldn’t the next generation of computing have a next-generation availability solution?

While cloud technology is relatively new, most enterprises are using traditional availability solutions to protect their cloud applications from downtime. Whether you’re building a cloud for your enterprise or for your customers, availability is important, and old availability strategies just won’t work. Enter OpenStack cloud applications.

This paper outlines a simpler, more effective way to keep cloud applications up and running, covering the benefits of using next-generation availability solutions for private clouds. It presents new thinking on how to ensure availability on today’s clouds built on OpenStack.
