High Availability Poll Results

high availability pollThis blog reports the results of Percona’s high availability poll.

High availability (HA) is always a hot topic. The reality is that if your data is not available, your customers cannot do business with you. In fact, estimates show the average cost of downtime is about $5K per minute. With an average outage taking 40 minutes to correct, you could be looking at a potential cost of $200K if your MySQL instance goes down. Whether your database is on premise, or in public or private clouds, it is critical that your database deployment does not have a potentially devastating single point of failure.

The results from Percona’s high availability poll responses are in:

    I count 844 total votes, and a total of 120%. Something looks incorrect in the math (maybe some participant voted for 2 solutions?). Can you please clarify?

    Rene, you are correct that votees were able to select more than one option per submission, thus the difference between the number of participants and the number of HA solutions. I’ve modified to text to reflect that. Thx!
