Dan / Kyle,
Regarding active and passive Bluemix System. How do you ensure that no data is lost if you have to failover to the passive system if you are not actively syncing both systems? Or do you have to set an expectation of from last save and then adjust your save times accordingly? Thanks.


Kyle Brown

Hey Kelley – There are two assumptions you have to make in order to assume no data is lost: (a) You have to assume that your runtimes are stateless – that is you don’t store data anywhere except inside a database. (b) You have to assume that your back-end services (e.g. databases) are actively synced. We can do that today in Bluemix with several of our databases like Cloudant and DB2 as a Service. I hope that helps!
