High Availability on Date Night

High availability network!

When building a network infrastructure for mission-critical traffic, high availability is an uncompromising requirement.  For any distributed and non-distributed system, when scale comes into play, it amplifies the probability of error, exposing any design weakness. With a distributed, cloud-based OS, there is no performance degradation. Using a virtualization layer, it is possible to scale up the data plane by adding more white boxes to the same logical network element, with no performance degradation or downtime – ensuring extremely high availability. This provides inherent support for high availability and resiliency through containers, microservices and smart clusters. The failure impact and fast recovery directly translates into the high availability of the network.
