Course Description

Continuous operations and improvements in the cloud is key for successful CloudOps and requires the appropriate components, tools, and best practices to be implemented. Cloud virtualization platforms offer the capability to provide highly redundant, failure-proof systems through the use of hardware and software components.

In this course, you'll explore the concept and objective of redundancy and the hierarchical network design used to attempt to eliminate single points of network failure in the network. Part of the discussion includes the key redundancy architectures and factors to consider in providing redundancy in the network design. You'll also examine the features of various cloud computing architectures and differentiate among redundancy management approaches in diversified deployment environments.

Next, you'll investigate the need for redundancy in data centers and outline the concept of site redundancy and the role of geo-redundancy in resolving problems of unused computing resources. You'll then identify the need for data replication to achieve redundancy, the features of asynchronous and synchronous replication, along with the conceptual aggregated work path for cloud services to implement redundancy and enable end-to-end availability.
