Failover Clustering in the Azure Cloud: Understanding the Options
There is a myriad of options available for providing high availability protection for applications running in the Azure cloud. Some of these options are in the operating system. Some are in the application software. Some are cloud-based services. And some are purpose-built by third-party vendors. The numerous permutations and combinations available can make it extraordinarily difficult to choose the best and most cost-effective solution for each application.
In general, failover clusters are the best option for assuring high availability. Historically, failover clusters were relatively easy to configure and test in the enterprise data center using shared storage and standard features built into Windows Server. But in the Azure and other public clouds, there is no shared storage. This creates a need to find other options for running mission-critical applications in a public or hybrid cloud environment.
This Beta News article by Dave Bermingham, Technical Evangelist at SIOS, examines the options available for providing high availability (HA) in the Azure cloud.
