ArcusIT Cloud IaaS Review
A few days ago, I have received an email that; I was one of the few who was given a demo account to explore and test drive one of their Arcus:IT Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). I’m so excited to checked it out and try running our web portal on the this environment. So stay tune guys, I’ll be posting the experience here in Qlick Tech Blog.
Amazon Cloud crash emphasizes the need for proper design and redundancy in Cloud delivered applications.
Meantime, I have received a press release from Sheryll Torres-Pabalan – Product Specialist from Arcus:IT about the Amazon Cloud Crash Incident. The Press Release reads:
Pasig City, Philippines, The recent crash and subsequent unavailability of multiple Amazon EC2 availability zones emphasizes the need for proper application and redundancy design in Cloud delivered applications.
Although the Cloud would seem like an infinite resource, it is not infallible. Proper application design would mandate that single points of failure should be avoided. The Cloud actually makes this easy.
The key is to use multiple Cloud providers for your applications and design your application assuming that failure is inevitable and testing your application delivery infrastructure under various failure scenarios.
It is easy to get carried away by the seeming ease with which you can deploy in the cloud and not fully consider the pitfalls of the technology. It is in this respect that you need a trusted Cloud Provider who will partner with you and help you with these design considerations and not just leave you on your own.
Arcus:IT your local Cloud Provider can demonstrate how you can leverage Arcus Cloud Servers and Spotcloud to build a resilient and globally diverse Cloud infrastructure to reliably deliver your Cloud application at the service levels that you require.
