Cloud platforms are highly reliable, but they are far from immune to regional outages. Outages not only hit the bottom line, they also thrust the availability and survivability of distributed systems — particularly cloud databases — into the spotlight.
An online travel booking company, Kiwi.com, experienced what would normally be considered a worst-case scenario: a catastrophic fire in a datacenter running their customer-facing services.
In this paper, you will learn how Kiwi survived, thanks to a well-planned high availability architecture, supported by the appropriate technologies.
