Understanding the truths and myths of HA and DR in cloud deployments can dramatically reduce data center costs and risks

Sr. Technical Evangelist

Gartner predicts that the bulk of new IT spending by 2016 will be for cloud platforms and applications and that nearly half of large enterprises will have cloud deployments by the end of 2017. The benefits of the cloud may be clear for applications that can tolerate brief periods of downtime, but for critical applications like SQL Server, Oracle and SAP, companies need a strategy for HA and DR protection. While traditional SAN-based clusters are not possible in these environments, SANless clusters can provide an easy, cost-efficient alternative.

In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, David Bermingham, Director, Technical Evangelist at SIOS Technology, will discuss the truths and myths of HA and DR in cloud deployments, which can dramatically reduce data center costs and risks.
