Continuous Availability

The continuous availability secures the non-disrupted access to both services and data of an application. In particular for critical business processes, the continuous availability is extremely important to offer services around the clock as well as any where and any time. To do so, an application service stack on a 2N-design specification needs to be established that corresponds to the double demand. Thus, the failure of a location, server or infrastructure service has no negative effects such as the onset of failover mechanisms or the options for data restore.
