Continuous Availability gives mission critical applications a no-compromise, always-on environment that is immune to unplanned outages and avoids a lot of planned outages through automatic and online data routing.
Continuous Availability provides benefits in three areas:
Disaster Avoidance: Information disasters result from a variety of causes including power outages, network failures, failure of datacenter equipment or natural disasters that can take down entire sites. CSPs need to keep the customer’s applications running in all these scenarios, without skipping a beat.
Non-disruptive Data Migration: A tech refresh of a storage array involves countless migration windows spanning months together. Online data migration can be done within a datacenter or across data centers giving ultimate flexibility in resource planning for cloud service providers.
In a 2015 survey the International Oracle User Group found that having a second datacenter is the number 1 availability strategy
