Strategies for Achieving Application Availability in the Cloud
Duration: 60 minutes
As the Internet and computing have become ubiquitous over the past 25 years, there is an expectation by customers of always-on service. Businesses compete based on meeting and exceeding customer expectations, and if those expectations are shattered, customers may choose to do business with the competition, affecting revenue and corporate profit as well as incurring unnecessary costs such as regulatory fines or lawsuits. As a result, the heart of most businesses - the most critical business processes such as those that deal with customers and fulfillment - are often expected to be available 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
Join us as Donna Scott, Gartner VP Distinguished Analyst, presents best practices in achieving multi-site application availability, while offering guidance on data center and hosting strategies in the age of cloud computing.
