Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Webcast - Live Now! At 11am today, The Reg's own Tim Phillips will be hosting a live webcast with our old mucker Jon Collins, from Freeform Dynamics, and Microsoft supremo Andrew Driver. The three of them will be talking about how to think about high availability systems architecturally, taking into account the service delivery and manageability aspects to ensure the availability and performance of specific applications and the infrastructure as a whole.

When it comes to high availability systems a number of proven design principles exist, such as clustering, replication and so on, which exist to help deliver an effective, reliable IT infrastructure. Meanwhile, infrastructure itself is changing, largely due to the impact of virtualisation but also starting to take into account hosted service delivery.

Such capabilities do offer benefits from an availability and performance perspective, but they can also be a risk if they are not considered in terms of how to deliver a reliable, available infrastructure.

So where to start? Well, you could join us. You can find out more on the proceedings here.

Remember, this is a live event so prepare some questions for these chaps. You can get a lot of these gigs if you want to.
