The availability of an Appian production system is an important topic to consider when planning an Appian deployment. Failures that may disrupt availability must be identified early and mitigated effectively. A robust architecture can limit the amount of system downtime and data loss caused by the failure.
Deploying a high availability configuration for Appian ensures that if a failure occurs in any given component of the hardware or software, it will not cause the system to violate its service-level agreement (SLA) requirements. All components of the architecture must be configured for high availability to form a highly available system which includes non-Appian specific components such as databases, file systems, and application servers. Your specific system configuration will and cloud vs. self-manageds architecture are factors to also take into account when assessing your environmental availability. Detailed information about these configuration options can be found in the Playbook documentation.
