The Need for High Availability

By Larry Walsh

The news coverage of the aftermath of Hurricane Irene is focusing on the immediate damage. Power outages up and down the eastern seaboard are keeping people in the dark. Roads and rail services are washed out. And flood waters cresting over residential and business centers. While the storm could have caused significantly more damage, the impact is being felt from North Carolina to New England.

But Hurricane Irene is having a ripple effect across the country and, for some, around the world as the storm is causing disruptions to business operations. Businesses that didn’t take precautions to safeguard their data and IT infrastructure are hobbled by the storm’s power and communications disruptions. People unable to get to work are coping with trying to access applications and information from their remote, storm-stricken areas. And business people are missing meetings across the country as they can’t get phone service. The worst is happening to businesses that simply have no data access regardless of their circumstances.

It always happens following a natural disaster; the Monday morning quarterbacking about disaster recovery, business continuity planning and ensuring uninterrupted access to business resources. This is more than just disaster recovery; it’s about good business operations and ensuring efficiency and effectiveness.

Today, the IT Budget Killer Series of webinars will discuss the need for high availability. As much as this isn’t about disaster recovery, it’s also not necessarily about bandwidth and systems availability. It’s about the need for persistently active and accessible production systems that users can reach for business processes and management. It’s about building systems that are scalable and expandable with ease. And it’s about ease of use and ease of management. Businesses without 24/7 access to data and processing resources are not just at risk to disruptions, but are vulnerable to competitive pressures.

Join us for this important and engaging discussion on the need for always on and always accessible data systems. Click here to register for the live event today, and for the archived event available later this week.

      Richard,In terms of what you are working to deevlop, I need to learn it all. I am fairly ignorant about both topics.I have to say this, I don’t use social media because I really don’t like the learning curve. I really don’t like all the clicking and having to figure out where to go, what to click, what to do first, it is just too overwhelming and I have too many other things to do vying for my time. I am looking for a simple, easy, and time efficient way to learn those topics.I tend be a straight typist I would rather write an article, or even an ebook for that matter, than figure out the social media networks there are so many.I would say if you are going to deevlop a product, take a network and make it very easy for people to understand. Don’t leave out any steps. And don’t use extra words.There is an art of saying a lot in a few words. People are busy. Keep it simple. Make it easy for people to understand how each social network works. I won’t look at complicated, long ebooks where it looks like someone put in a bunch of words just to pad it . Give me the info in the most direct means possible, and don’t assume that I know any of the steps. Spell it out 1 2 3 .As for organizing, I went through a season of doing that and now I maintain it. I am leaving a link to an article on one of my blogs that talks about that. It might be useful for you.
