High Availability that can Weather the Storm

Hosted for SUSECon

Blog by Priya Patel


Hurricane Sandy was one of twelve weather and climate related disasters that cost billions of dollars in damages to the US in 2012, making that year the second costliest for natural disasters since 1980. [1] With these types of losses, it’s worth wondering about what has changed since then.


In today’s always on, increasingly complex IT world, applications and data proliferate like they never have before. They are real-time, customer-facing, and integrated into every aspect of your business. Never before has this confluence of factors created such layers of digital complexity and on top of this complexity are the demands for information from employees, customers and partners to do their jobs. Today, many organizations recognize the importance and need to implement a high availability and disaster recovery plan, but few have the resources, time, or expertise to test their ability to recover from such costly disasters.


The disasters that occurred in 2012 illustrate that downtime can happen at any time and is an ongoing and unavoidable challenge for businesses of every size. In the face of disaster, will you be ready? Be prepared with HP Serviceguard Solutions for Linux, a high availability and disaster recovery solution that enables you to get your applications protected fast, and substantially increase your application uptime on an x86 platform.
