Server uptime and reliability are crucial to running a great data center. IT organizations spend time and money implementing high availability (HA) virtualization and adequate server operations and security. Invest in fault tolerance and designed-to-fail architectures so that IT workloads continue operating even when the worst happens.
This guide explores how the different ways IT organizations build uptime into their servers and data centers, from facility to hardware to HA virtualization and designed-to-fail systems.
