An obvious goal of any cloud engineer is to ensure as little loss of service and downtime as possible. In this course, you'll explore the concept of high availability and outline the most common IT considerations, necessary components, architectures, and recommended strategies for implementing high availability. You'll examine the different types of outages addressed using high-availability solutions and the implementation approaches for primary and secondary distribution servers in high-availability environments. You'll then classify the benefits and pitfalls of implementing high-availability deployments and compare traditional and virtualized high-availability and failover solutions. Furthermore, you'll investigate the system availability metrics, key cloud architecture patterns, and critical cloud service management guidelines for designing and architecting high-availability solutions. Lastly, you'll differentiate between traditional and cloud high-availability solutions and define the process of migrating from traditional to cloud high-availability deployments.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • discover the key concepts covered in this course
    define the concept of high availability and describe the most common IT considerations for establishing a traditional high-availability solution
    recall the different types of outages that need to be addressed using high-availability solutions
    list and describe the primary components that are used to design end-to-end high-availability solutions
    compare the prominent high-availability architectures and best practices to derive the desired benefits from HA implementation
    describe the basic principles of failover along with the features of real application clusters implemented in high-availability systems
    state the implementation approach of primary and secondary distribution servers in high-availability environments
    recognize the benefits and pitfalls of implementing high-availability deployment
  • recall the concept of traditional high-availability and failover solutions and compare it with high-availability solutions implemented using virtualization
    list the recommended strategies that can be adopted to implement high availability and limit downtime exposure
    describe the metrics that can be used to evaluate the availability of systems or applications along with the features provided by cloud that help build reliable and highly available systems
    recall the key cloud architecture patterns used to design high-availability solutions and help avoid a single point of failure at each layer
    list the critical cloud service management guidelines that need to be considered when designing and architecting high-availability solutions
    describe the process of migrating from traditional high-availability deployments to cloud using the reference migration roadmap
    compare the features and characteristics of traditional high-availability solutions and cloud high-availability solutions in order to adopt the right implementation approach
