Tech giants work to together to develop new Zero Outage industry standard

A group of technology companies have announced that they have joined together to establish a ‘Zero Outage’ industry standard to safeguard quality and reliability of IT infrastructure. The common goal of the group is to maximize availability and customer satisfaction by improving stability and security by defining an industry best practice based on a Zero Outage framework.

The association's founding members are: Brocade, Cisco, Dell EMC, HDS, HPE, Juniper, NetApp, SAP, SUSE and T-Systems. The aim is to work together as partners and develop an industry wide known and respected best practice approach to ensure a stable and secure IT environment.

In order to enable highly stable operations, companies need to be able to control the quality of platforms, people, processes and security throughout the whole supply chain. The Zero Outage Industry Standard association intends to specify consistent error response times, employee qualification levels and set security and platform requirements. This can help companies to minimize errors, increase availability, ensure security and operate cost-effectively.

The framework will be published on http://www.zero-outage.com/
