Adding High Availability to the Cloud

In this article, we discuss the role that data replication solutions can play in public, private, and hybrid-cloud computing for critical applications and how it can lower your IT costs, improve fault tolerance of your applications, and increase flexibility. Companies are motivated to find a way for critical applications to take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing. A hybrid approach that assigns critical processing to highly available private systems – such as HP NonStop servers and noncritical processing to the public cloud – is a concept that is gaining momentum. Data replication plays an important role by providing the ‘glue that binds’ virtual machines running in the public cloud to highly available private servers handling the critical roles.
