High Availability

23 Aug

Well, today is going to be a big day for blogging.  In a company that stresses the importance of high availability and continuous availability the unthinkable happened…we lost access to the internet.  Before today, I didn’t realize how dependant we have become on this availability.  IT in general has touted the benefits of “the cloud” around cost savings and availability, allowing companies to take advantage of economies of scale and share IT costs with other businesses.  But, what happens the day your internet provider loses connectivity?  If you are like us, the business goes down.  While we will not lose any of our critical business data, we are losing valuable business hours.  Without access to any of our business applications, I can tell you I am at a loss at what to do today.  So, I will continue to write as I have had very little time to do so lately.  Enjoy!
