Lights, Camera, Action! - a journey with your Cloud Co-Pilot, part 4

Your cloud-hosted workloads are your "main event". They are your commerce website, your CRM application, your collaboration tools, your partner portal, your corporate website, etc - the engines that drive your business and enable your organization to connect, collaborate, and transact business across a broad group of employees, customers, partners, suppliers, and more. Unlike the making of a motion picture, where you can rehearse and do as many re-takes as needed, your cloud-hosted workloads need to be up-and-running 24 x 7 x 365. Downtime is not an option for your end-users. When operating in the cloud, this is easier said than done. The availability of the IaaS/PaaS services are completely out of your control. So how do you ensure your workloads stay online, even when your cloud provider goes down?

In this short video Jason and I will explore some of the top considerations related to designing for high availability when operating in the Cloud.

As a follow-up to the video above, in this short video Jason describes his personal experiencing working with Akamai to overcome the availability challenges he has experienced when operating in the Cloud.
