High availability computing is positioned to be a major catalyst in revolutionizing the deployment of Web services. High availability is emerging as a platform of choice for data centers in every industry and for Internet servers due to its economic and management efficiencies.

Many global 2000 businesses are doubling their data every year. As Global 2000 businesses become more global in their operations, applications and data must be available all of the time. The fundamental market driving forces for high availability systems are the need to provide network data centers and the need to respond to e-business market opportunities. As back end systems are linked to front-end systems high availability is more of a dominant market factor.

Benefits of high availability servers relate to the fact that systems are positioned as an integration platform. High availability supports the integration of multiple servers, storage, Ethernet switches, and networking. High availability systems are available at reduced cost in comparison to other servers. High availability is achieved by the implementation of application servers, wirespeed messaging, and clustering. Worldwide application server software markets at $1.8 billion in 2002 are expected to reach $2.9 billion by 2008. Worldwide wirespeed messaging engines are designed to be accessed from a desktop and to support transfer of messages securely. Markets at $10 million in 2002 are expected to reach $104 million by 2008.
