A new Data Center Knowledge article posted today by David Gauthier, director of data center architecture for Microsoft Global Foundation Services. In the article, David describes the early days of data center operations which had a heavy reliance on complex hardware redundancy. He then goes on to discuss today’s software design and architecture that now drives Microsoft’s cloud scale data center service availability. I recommend this evolutionary piece. It sheds light on the role and revolution of software that has vastly become the key driver of service availability. Next week I’ll highlight a few insights from my colleague David Bills (Chief Reliability Strategist) who will pen another Data Center Knowledge story on the cultural shift and adaptive engineering principles that we’re using to help improve the dependability of our cloud services.
