Private Cloud Server: What’s New in the World of SPOF Elimination?

Private Cloud Server: What’s New in the World of SPOF Elimination?

Technology is advancing at the speed of light, and businesses that aren’t able to keep up are going to fail their customers. Change is happening so quickly that for today’s business owners, managers, and executives, it’s an absolute requirement to be not only technologically savvy, but to be at the forefront of the industry. That doesn’t mean just keeping their computers operational, but their data as well. This is where the need for an up-to-date private cloud server comes into play.

About single point of failures in cloud-based systems

A single point of failure (SPOF) is a potentially lethal issue presented by a flaw in the design, implementation, or configuration of a system, in which one error or malfunction can render the entire system completely unusable. In an IT environment, an SPOF can affect the availability of workloads—and even entire data centers—depending on the location and interdependencies involved.

What does SPOF elimination mean?

Eliminating SPOFs generally means implementing redundant critical system components—a backup for your backups, if you will. In the case of a private cloud, the need for redundant components and the type they come in greatly depends on the ways a client connects to the cloud and what they want the system to do.

SPOFs in private cloud security

Despite the many advancements in SPOF elimination, one aspect of private cloud computing wherein SPOFs still exist is security. Fortunately, an Australian company seems to have solved the security-SPOF riddle. A CMO article explains how they did it:

Modern ICT infrastructure is designed so that there is no single point of failure. No organisation relies on a single disk for storage, servers and databases are replicated, and networks are designed so that connectivity does not rely on any single router, and so on. Security is the exception; cryptographic keys are typically stored in a single place. Dyadic Security’s technology now removes that single point of failure of security by sharing cryptographic keys.

 What happens next?

As the technology becomes more efficient and mainstream, you can expect recognized cloud service providers like Ripple Web to be on top of everything as it happens. Cloud service companies have a reputation for keeping up-to-date with the latest, most relevant technologies, so when it comes to your private cloud computing needs, they are the ones to talk to.
