In the early days of IT, it was enough to get our very expensive processors and code to run efficiently, when they worked at all. Over the past few decades, our concerns have grown from reliability, availability, serviceability (RAS) to also include scalability and security for each IT workload.
As part of all this, there is even greater importance placed on the maintenance of business continuity. How do we keep our IT services operating in spite of the near certainty of failures of code, components, connectivity and continuity? In this presentation, capacity expert and Professor Jonathan Gladstone will review the principles of business continuity and contingency planning as they pertain to enterprise data centers.
