Beginning Well is Great, but Maintaining Uptime Takes Vigilance

Managers and leaders look out at the greenfield with excitement and optimism is high. But, this moment of kickoff, and even the Champagne popping moment of a successful deployment are but just the beginning. Maintaining uptime requires ongoing vigilance.

High availability and the elusive four nines of uptime for your critical applications and databases aren’t momentary occurrences, but rather, a constant endeavor to end the little foxes that destroy the vineyard. Staying abreast of threats, up-to-date on the updates, and properly trained and prepared is the work from which your team “is never entitled to take a vacation.”
