Data Resiliency in the Public Cloud

In the world of enterprise IT, there is no word scarier than downtime. When every bit of data counts, minimizing the cost of failures through meeting the recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO) is becoming a critical KPI for DevOps teams. In this article, we’ll explore the challenges of achieving Zero PRO in the public cloud and possible solutions.

What is High Availability in the Public Cloud?

To achieve high availability in the public cloud, most cloud providers offer SLAs with a 99.999% uptime guarantee. For many applications, this arrangement is good enough. But when latency, availability, and control are critical, enterprises are still hesitant to move their workload to the cloud. And for a good reason – the cloud still has availability and assurance problems. Can Public Clouds Reach the Same Level of Availability as On-Prem SLAs?
