High availability is key to running an effective cloud. We continuously monitor availability across our customers’ infrastructure to identify issues which can impede the performance of their cloud operations. Take a look at some of the issues we’ve identified below, or sign up for personalized insights.
Balancing servers across multiple availability zones
Distributed infrastructure is vital to achieving high availability. Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) can automatically distribute traffic to multiple EC2 instances. To get the best out of your operations you should distribute your instances across multiple geographical zones, that way if all the instances across a single datacenter prove unhealthy, as can happen in an outage, your application can run from a different datacenter.

High CPU load can trigger major downtime risk and service degradation. Newvem constantly monitors CPU load across customers’ servers, notifying them when high CPU loads are detected.
If your CPU load is high consider one of the following remedies:
- Vertical scaling: scale up to larger servers
- Horizontal scaling: scale out to additional servers
- Auto-scaling: scale up or down dynamically
