Cloud availability zones and regions are not immune to outages. The zones go down regularly, and regions become unavailable during natural disasters or human-caused incidents. Thus, if an availability zone or a larger area goes down, so does your application…unless the application functions across multiple geographic locations. In this tech talk, we’ll review the latest availability and reliability patterns used by architects whose applications withstood major cloud outages. We’ll begin with a resilient data layer that tolerates region-level outages and go all the way up to global cloud load balancers that direct user traffic to the healthy instances of an app.
