High available with Azure and AWS with the Open Smart Grid Platform

A customer of the Open Smart Grid Platform founder Smart Society Services asked to show a high available cloud agnostic approach. They wanted to see that the Open Smart Grid Platform was running on the AWS (Amazon Web Services) and on the Microsoft Azure Cloud in a high availability setup.


An active-active setup was chosen to make this happen. When one public cloud provider stopped working, the other cloud provider took over the workload. This multi-cloud approach mitigates the risk of relying on 1 cloud provider. Even public clouds can fail. A Smart Society Services screen-cast on this topic will follow.
