    APPLICATION RESILIENCE

    Application resilience can be classified by the effect to the user. The entire application environment, including data replication and switchable devices can be controlled through the clustering infrastructure as a single entity.

    LEVELS OF APPLICATION RESILIENCY

    Application resiliency can be customized to the level of resiliency that your business requires using the features of the clustering framework.

    DATA RESILIENCE

    Data resilience is the availability of the data that is needed in a production environment. There are several technologies, which address the data resilience requirements. These technologies can be split into two main categories: logical or software replication and hardware or disk replication.

    ENVIRONMENT RESILIENCE

    Environment resilience can be broken up into two sections, the physical environment, and the logical environment. The physical environment, which is really part of single system availability, focuses on things such as hardware redundancy, network topology, power infrastructure, and cooling capabilities. The logical environment is the application hosting and execution environment.
