Executive Summary

Businesses are more dependent than ever on their network infrastructure. The Internet has enabled many organizations to go global and operate 24x7x365. Employees, customers and partners have expectations that the information and interaction they require from the network will be available to them whenever they need it, wherever they are.

For IT and networking professionals, this means building networks with the goal of eliminating downtime and providing uninterrupted access to the business resources supported by the network - applications, websites, databases, you name it. When thinking about network architecture, it is critical that IT decision-makers understand which applications and business processes are most important in terms of application uptime. This requires careful analysis, planning and network design.

Fortunately, today's next-generation technology enables network resiliency that offers unprecedented levels of high availability for your most important IT and business resources. By designing, building and deploying networks with high levels of redundancy, IT and network professionals can ensure a highly available network and protect their organizations against the lost business and diminished productivity that results from network downtime. This paper discusses the importance of high availability, resilient networks and how to go about planning and designing them based on the needs and requirements of your business.
