Public and private clouds empower modern businesses to move away from traditional error-prone architectures and run applications with five nines and six nines availability. Business applications can be spun-up on-demand, instantly, and cost-effectively. Database applications have always been a key component of all enterprise infrastructures, but these applications and relational databases still have a long way to go when it comes to leveraging the power of the cloud. Due to being designed as large monolithic applications they present a significant challenge when you are trying to run them reliably in a scalable manner.
We have created a demo that exhibits how Hedvig enables the reliable deployment of private and hybrid cloud databases. In this demo, we cover two scenarios for running databases, Highly available databases and Test/Dev databases. You can find a link to the actual demo at the end of this article.
