In this blog, we will create an active-active infrastructure on Microsoft Azure using Terraform and Jenkins.
Prime Reasons to have an active-active set-up of your infrastructure
Disaster recovery (DR) is an organization’s method of regaining access and functionality to its IT infrastructure after events like a natural disaster, cyber attack, or even business disruptions just like during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Ensure business resilience
No matter what happens, a good DR plan can ensure that the business can return to full operations rapidly, without losing data or transactions.
- Maintain competitiveness
Loyalty is rare and when a business goes offline, customers turn to competitors to get the goods or services they require. A DR plan prevents this.
- Avoid data loss
The longer a business’s systems are down, the greater the risk that data will be lost. A robust DR plan minimizes this risk.
- Maintain reputation
A business that has trouble resuming operations after an outage can suffer brand damage. For that reason, a solid DR plan is critical.
