White Paper: Architecting High Availability Linux Environments within the Cloud

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Angela Bartels | February 23, 2011 10:27 am

More and more businesses are shifting from using cloud computing[1] solely for testing and development to extending pieces of their production environments into the cloud. With this shift, IT decision makers are now faced with a whole new set of considerations.

If downtime in your internal infrastructure or core product offerings negatively impacts your bottom line, coming up with a solution to eliminate single points of failure is probably one of your number one priorities. Our engineering team has put together a white paper covering the concepts needed for planning, designing, and deploying best-practice High Availability IaaS environments using Rackspace Linux Cloud Servers[2]. Although the material is Rackspace specific, the content can apply to most virtualized IaaS solutions.
