High Availability – redundancy and data protection
Remember that High Availability is not a privilege. It is a necessity that enables an organization’s capability to continue delivering their products and services during disruptive incidents. About 40% of service interruptions are caused by power station failures, 25% by hardware failures, and 13% are software failures, such as miss-configuration or severe bugs. What downtime mostly stands for are costs. But with Open-E’s failover technology and professional partner support, organizations are able to continue their business operations with 99.999% data availability.
