Availability is a top priority not only in IT, but across the entire business. High availability applications have become a common necessity for ensuring that end users can access the data and applications they need, when they need them. Best practice recommends regularly monitoring high availability applications for synchronization issues and replication bottlenecks, so you‘re ready to make the switch when disaster strikes.
