High availability requirement of the network is becoming essential for high growth disruptive technology companies. For businesses which require migration to networks supporting scalability and high availability, it is important to analyze the various factors and the cost effectiveness for choosing the optimal solution for them. The current paper considers this important problem and presents an analysis of the important factors influencing the decision. The high availability of network is discussed using internal and external risk factors of the network. A production network risk matrix is proposed and a scheme to compute the overall risk is presented.
