Part 2: The Math & the killer(s) — Building a 5–nines (99.999%) Available Platform

Thank you for coming back to read Part 2. We discussed the context and set up for the series in Part 1.

We will discuss some of the theory and math behind 5-nines, what does it take on a paper to build one, the Achilles heel, and the laws of physics that are going to stop you from building such a platform.
