Always On Digital Government

A white paper and webinar on High Availability Digital Government

As described in this news article the impact on Calgary of a recent data centre outage was quite severe, knocking out a variety of important government systems and preventing a number of critical healthcare treatments.

Service Alberta experienced downtime of applications like drivers licence renewals, as an IBM facility housed in the same centre went down as well.

In a 2010 report from the Auditor General of the Government of Canada Aged IT Systems, it highlighted how a number of other agencies like Canada Revenue Agency, Public Works, HRSDC, RCMP and Citizenship and Immigration are also all faced with similar risks, due to aging IT platforms.

Always On Digital Government

Always On is a term we use to describe new technologies that harness Cloud Computing to achieve very High Availability systems – These can be used to mitigate these downtime risks through achieving multi-data centre configurations.

Next week we will be publishing a white paper and running a webinar that explains in detail about our Always On solutions program.
