How to ensure a high-availability cloud

Sponsored by

This chapter is included in the Cloud storage challenges and choices E-Book.

High availability and redundancy have always been an important part of local storage, but they're just as important in cloud storage. At first glance, it might seem easy to dismiss these aspects of cloud architecture as beyond your control because the cloud storage provider's internal infrastructure is established. But think again.

While you might not be able to configure a cloud storage provider's fault-tolerant mechanisms, you can take steps to ensure you have resilient connectivity to cloud storage. Furthermore, there are technologies that allow you to achieve true fault tolerance for cloud storage by implementing technology such as striping data across multiple clouds. In this chapter, Brien Posey, a leading technical expert specializing in storage architectures, answers key questions regarding high-availability cloud storage, fault tolerance and overall reliability in the cloud.
