Availability Techniques

One of the basic principles of cloud computing is that infrastructure can go wrong. The computer centre infrastructure, the hardware, the operating system, the network can all have failure scenarios. With cloud computing and a modern application architecture, these failure scenarios are handled at the application level by some of the techniques described in this chapter such as

Also, the presentation Achieving maximum uptime: architecting resilient services in the CERN Cloud Infrastructure gives a technical overview of the CERN Cloud Infrastructure in order to build resilient services.
