High Availability and Resiliency
This year, Karel De Winter an myself, made a video contribution which can help you to get started with High Availability and Resiliency on Azure.
A key area to consider when looking at Microsoft Azure features is their availability. For most businesses it is extremely important to know the proportion of time their business-critical workloads will be operational. In Azure this availability, just like in most other environments, is mostly achieved through a redundant set-up of each component such that any single point of failure is avoided.
Next to that it is also important to look at the resiliency or the ability those features have to self-recover from failures in a way that minimizes downtime or any data loss.
In our video we look into Azure Resiliency, which combines high availability, disaster recovery and backup, and we talk about the following topics:
- Azure VM SLA’s
- Fault and Update domains
- Availability Set
- Availability Zones
- Resiliency for Applications
- Azure Backup
- Azure Site Recovery
- Auto Scaling
- Data Replication
Networking Design and Management
- Azure Load Balancer
- Azure Application Gateway
- Azure Front Door
- Azure Traffic Manager
- Azure CDN for Caching and Replication
The video we made is available on the MC2MC YouTube Channel or you can watch it directly form here.
We are really happy to be part of this online event and we hope hope you learn something new from watching our video.
Happy watching and cleaning!
