High Availability (HA)
What is High Availability?
In computing, "availability" describes the time a given service is available and the time required by a system to respond to a request. High Availability is a quality of a system or component that assures a high level of operational performance for a given time. High Availability eliminates single points of failure to enable a system to continue operating continuously.
- In the world of NXLog
High Availability is critical from an operational perspective. Reliable operation is one of the primary goals of a software vendor. NXLog is no different; we apply several mechanisms to ensure that log data delivery is as efficient and reliable as possible.
The two main components of any HA deployment are failover for fault tolerance and load balancing for maintaining performance. NXLog integrates with third-party load-balancing solutions and ships with built-in failover capabilities.
