Automation, is the key to a successful cloud deployment. If your set up is complete, it’s because you no longer care about the loss of a server. This may have you asking, why would you not care about the loss of a server? Surely, the loss of server, is like losing your right arm? Not with cloud! With Cloud technology, your solution should be ‘designed to fail’. This doesn’t mean you design your solution to make sure your website is down all the time, or that your database no longer works when your server dies. This means, you’ve designed your environment, to sustain such a loss, seamlessly and without issue.
With automation, High Availability and Disaster Recovery strategies, executed properly, with Cloud Technologies at the root of the solution, you no longer need to care about the loss of a server. You don’t care, because you have a server ready to take over from it and you have more servers coming down the pipe. That’s right, you’ve lost your master database server, but the automated High Availability solution you’ve deployed, took over, elevated your slave to a master, switched over the DNS for your database server to the slave and has already set in motion, the launch of a new slave, to replace the old one.
If your automation is good, then downtime is a thing of the past.
