Highly Available Systems

Where simple availability is not enough, since too much depends on one system, specialists in system design and architecture are required who are used to thinking about error scenarios and the possibilities of failure.

One approach to high availability has been one of the core strengths of SCS since its foundation: the parallelisation of tasks.

Our years of experience with numerous aspects of high availability (distributed computing, distributed file systems, failure security, redundancies, failover, etc.) make us proven experts in building business-critical systems.
