Webinar: Data Center Resiliency in the Age of Cloud

This is a recording of a presentation at Uptime Institute's Executive Symposium: Las Vegas in 2017.

Presentation Title:
Data Center Resiliency in the Age of Cloud

Speakers:
Andy Lawrence, Executive Director of Research, Uptime Institute
Todd Traver, VP IT Optimization Strategies, Uptime Institute

Summary:
The evolution of compute from single-site data centers to a multi-site hybrid computing model is enabling distributed models of resiliency that can achieve high availability and rapid recovery alongside improved performance. But there are also risks and limitations created by the complex software and coordination of new third-party services, as well as the technologies necessary to orchestrate applications and data. This session will discuss the pros and cons of four resilient architectures (traditional single-site, linked-site, distributed-site, cloud-based).
