Surviving a Public Outage

The most recent Amazon Web Services (AWS) outage impacted well over 100,000 businesses leaving them unprepared in the dark and at the mercy of Amazon’s technicians.

Tech outages are a matter of ‘when’ not ‘if’ and when they do occur your internal stakeholders aren’t going to care about what hoops you need to jump through to get systems up and running again. While the public cloud may make sense as a failover for certain kinds of workloads, and/or firms with the expertise and staff to manage a total disaster, it’s not right for many organizations. For those businesses a managed DRaaS option can provide your Data Systems Manager infrastructure with rapid failover and you with peace of mind.

Whether you suffered from the AWS outage or dodged a bullet, here are some key items to consider in order to survive the next public cloud outage:

  • Pick the Right Kind of Failover Environment
  • Balance Your Workloads
  • Be Realistic About a Crisis
  • Revisit, Test (or Create) Your Disaster Recovery (DR) Plan
  • Read the Fine Print
