Our Vision for High-Availability

We are trying to create a world where world-class high-availability software and techniques are taken for granted.

In such a world, it is simply assumed that if it's even reasonably important that HA techniques have been taken advantage of whether in a cluster or a single machine.

We see the following obstacles to this coming about:

  • Availability of affordable, world-class HA software and information

    • The Linux-HA software
    • The Linux-HA web site
  • TCO of HA Systems

    • Hardware
    • Software
    • Staffing
  • Complexity of HA systems

    • Human knowledge - make it simple to learn
    • Installation - make it simple to install
    • Management/Operations - make it simple to manage
    • Troubleshooting - make it simple to troubleshoot
  • Awareness of HA systems

    • Create awareness that HA can be affordable
    • Create awareness that HA techniques are easy to learn
    • Create awareness that HA systems are easy to install and maintain
