Top 5 Tips to Keep Data and Applications Available


In today’s world of applications, we don’t want to think of application availability, but we need to. 

In this webinar by Denny Cherry & Kevin Kline we’ll look at the various ways that both data and applications can be brought from the world of single server availability to a highly available deployment model. While specific parts of an application, such as the database, are highly available, the entire application stack needs to be highly available because if any one piece of the application goes offline, the entire application will be unusable for the customer.

The goal with availability isn’t to keep one part of the application running, it’s to keep the entire application up and running. And we’re going to help you design for this.
