Abstract
(EN)
A capability is provided for improving service availability experienced by a user requesting access to a service via a user device, where the service has multiple service instances available from multiple data centers. A set of servicing data centers is selected for the user device. The set of servicing data centers is selected from a set of candidate data centers. The set of servicing data centers is selected from the set of candidate data centers in a manner for maximizing the independence / orthogonality of the network paths between the user device and the servicing data centers. The set of servicing data centers includes two or more of the candidate data centers from which the user device may access the service, thereby providing the user device with a primary service instance and one or more backup service instances which may be used to access the service.

L'invention concerne des moyens d'améliorer la disponibilité de service vécue par un utilisateur requérant l'accès à un service via un dispositif utilisateur, le service ayant des instances de service multiples disponibles via des centres de données multiples. Un ensemble de centres de données de service est sélectionné pour le dispositif utilisateur. L'ensemble de centres de données de service est sélectionné à partir d'un ensemble de centres de données candidats. L'ensemble de centres de données de service est sélectionné à partir de l'ensemble de centres de données candidats de manière à maximiser l'indépendance/orthogonalité des chemins de réseau entre le dispositif utilisateur et les centres de données de service. L'ensemble de centres de données de service comprend deux des centres de données candidats ou plus à partir desquels le dispositif utilisateur peut accéder au service, offrant ainsi au dispositif utilisateur une instance de service primaire et une ou plusieurs instances de service de secours qui peuvent être utilisées pour accéder au service.
