Always On Cloud Computing best practices are based on the Always on Framework.
We describe how Cloud Computing can be used to implement these best practices and achieve ultra resilient business ssystems.
The AO Framework was designed by Craig McLellan, who previously worked as CTO for Hosting.com, designing numerous high availability platforms for their key clients.Check out his presentation here.

ZeroNines offers technology for running naturally this way across providers like Amazon, Google, Rackspace et al. CEO Alan Gin presented on how it can be used to achieve an Always Available business.

Centrilogic – Hybrid Hosting for the Enterprise
Operating multiple data-centres in Canada, the USA and UK, Centrilogic is ideally positioned to be a managed services option for the Hybrid Cloud architecture that these systems can be used to build.
Jim Latimer delivered their presentation on Hybrid Hosting for the Enterprise.
Backupify your Google Apps
We also showcased the Backupify product.
This offers the same multi-cloud benefits of Always On for even the smallest of businesses who might be using online apps like Google.
They protect against a common reason for business downtme: User generated errors. By backing up one Cloud to another, like from Google to Amazon, IT teams can protect against this form of data loss.
