Achieving The Next Level in High Availability Systems

Increasing availability to five "9"s and beyond for computing requires several considerations beyond the computing hardware and software platforms. Although the actual computer hardware and software are critical components in achieving high availability, one of the most important areas that is often overlooked at the computer system level is a reliable and highly available power source. This requirement is either assumed, or it is requested that the end user ensure that a reliable power source is available 24/7. Because high availability computing is primarily found in the converging market where computer telephony and telecommunications have come together, the power infrastructure is typically robust and has been designed from both a high reliability and high availability perspective. It may seem redundant to mention both high reliability and high availability, however they are not mutually exclusive but mutually dependent.
