In addition to that, Computer technologies are a new science, and therefore not as reliable as electrical and mechanical sciences. Thus, the focus of a service provider like Cloud Acropolis must be a lot more on its ICT rather than power and cooling.
To overcome the above-mentioned challenge, we have acquired a 2nd building in country, rented a dark fiber from one of the local operators, and extended our virtual infrastructure within 2 sites completely separate, kilometers away from each other.
Even though in 2 physical sites, our virtual platform is just one and see just servers, storage and switches as extended hosts, like if they were in the same rack. So VMs and services can automatically go from one host to another, from one building to another.
This is the first of its kind in Oman for a Cloud Service Provider, we even think we are the only one in the entire middle east.
Based on the above our availability on the virtual services is very near to 100%.
