IT outages and stability issues are common challenges facing business customers of popular cloud services companies. Especially when the cost of data center downtime at $7,900 per minute is high enough to grind your business to a halt, you just can’t tolerate IT service outages. Large vendors would like you to believe their infrastructure is designed for flawless performance and stability. But the fact remains that not every application is built to modern design patterns where each app component expects to live in an ephemeral compute environment where assets can be launched and destroyed at any time. And perhaps that’s exactly how a majority of IaaS vendors treat your business applications as well. Not because they might just be correct, but because their IaaS offerings are not always built upon highly available architecture
Almost unbelievable, right? This isn’t an accident. Consider the case of Netflix. The company famously created a piece of software called the Chaos Monkey to help them find success on AWS. The Chaos Monkey obliterates a random AWS compute instance every 30 minutes without warning, to ensure that every part of the Netflix infrastructure can truly survive the unpredictable host outages that they are subjected to.
Does your organization operate on the same scale and financial resources to fund, develop and operate enterprise-grade tooling merely to guarantee availability? It’s a promise that vendors commit to, yet fail to deliver.
Or can you let go of all legacy applications running on their IaaS network and invest in redeveloping your software products from scratch before questioning their availability performance?
Well how about relying on providers that guarantee continuous availability for your applications as they are. With the multi-cloud network built for high availability for all of your legacy applications, HOSTING promises just that.
