  15. 15. 15#Automating HA and DR Use dynamic DNS for your database servers Allow app servers to use a single FQDN. Use a low TTL to allow rapid failover in the case of a change in master database Automatic connection of app servers to load balancing servers App servers can connect to all load balancers automatically at launch No manual intervention No DNS modifications Automated promotion of slave to master Process is automated Decision to run process is manualCloud Management#rightscale

  19. 19. 19#Most Common Observed Cloud Outages Outage of specific services in a zone Degraded performance E.g. EBS, ELB, RDS Outage of specific services in a region Control plane error or cascading problems E.g. EBS Outage of power or network in a zone No connectivity E.g. EC2, Azure Capacity availability in a region during an outage Not possible to provision instances, volumes, or other servicesCloud Management #rightscale
