Resilience in Cloud - Virtual Round Table
3rd March 2021, 19:00 - 11:00 GMT
A Round Table panel discussion lead by Cloudsoft's Alasdair Hodge, Principal Engineer and Solutions Architect, and hosted by ISITC - Europe.
WHEN BUSINESS DOWNTIME IS NOT AN OPTION
ISITC – Europe is a not for profit industry group whose members span the capital markets. As an enabler of innovation and technological transformation, cloud computing is one of the key technologies that has the potential to shape the development of Europe’s capital markets in the next five to ten years.
However Cloud deployments typically include unpredictable traffic patterns and sporadic large-scale variations in transaction volume and capacity due to changing business requirements. Architectures are more open, with multiple vendors, ISPs, management systems, connection options and technologies. All of this brings risks to the business where downtime of critical applications has been estimated to be in excess of $1m per hour or more.
So how do organisations in the Capital Markets manage resilience in their Cloud environments and what are the main considerations?
