A new tutorial on IBM Cloud’s capabilities for building resilient solutions

Regardless of the compute option—Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry, Cloud Functions, or Virtual Servers—enterprises seek to minimize downtime and create resilient architectures to achieve maximum availability.

In order to help achieve those goals, we added a new tutorial to our collection of solution tutorials that highlights IBM Cloud‘s capabilities for building resilient solutions. In doing so, we are answering the following questions.

  • What should I consider when preparing a solution to be globally available?

  • How do available compute options help you deliver multi-region applications?

  • How do I import application or service artifacts into additional regions?

  • How can databases replicate across locations?

  • Which backing services should be used—Block Storage, File Storage, Object Storage, or Databases?

  • Are there any service-specific considerations?

Resilient multi-region architecture

To design a resilient architecture, you need to consider the individual blocks of your solution and their specific capabilities. Below is a multi-region architecture showcasing the different components that may exist in a multi-region setup.

Note: The architecture diagram above may be different depending on the compute option. You will find specific architecture diagrams under each compute option in the solution tutorial.

There is more to discover in this resiliency tutorial: Strategies for Building Multi-Region Apps. We encourage you to go through the tutorial fully. It will give you an idea of IBM Cloud’s capabilities around building resilient solutions covering compute options like Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry, Cloud Functions, Virtual Servers, and databases.

Following the solution tutorial, you will also learn how to prepare your app for disaster recovery with two and three regions using active-active and active-passive configurations. Having your app deployed across regions and preparing your database and service for such architecture. All this and more covered in the solution tutorial.

The advantages and disadvantages of private cloud 

6 min read - The popularity of private cloud is growing, primarily driven by the need for greater data security. Across industries like education, retail and government, organizations are choosing private cloud settings to conduct business use cases involving workloads with sensitive information and to comply with data privacy and compliance needs. In a report from Technavio (link resides outside ibm.com), the private cloud services market size is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 26.71% between 2023 and 2028, and it is forecast to increase by…

Optimize observability with IBM Cloud Logs to help improve infrastructure and app performance

5 min read - There is a dilemma facing infrastructure and app performance—as workloads generate an expanding amount of observability data, it puts increased pressure on collection tool abilities to process it all. The resulting data stress becomes expensive to manage and makes it harder to obtain actionable insights from the data itself, making it harder to have fast, effective, and cost-efficient performance management. A recent IDC study found that 57% of large enterprises are either collecting too much or too little observability data.…
