This document assumes that you have undertaken a series of reviews aligned with industry best practice in contingency planning, backup, and disaster recovery. We have included the section above to help align with the NIST guidance.

This document assumes that technically you have created a resilient, highly available cluster design that implements appropriate high availability and load balancing choices for the workloads associated with that cluster.

This document assumes that clusters are managed equivalently, minimizing configuration drift between the two environments that may make failover operations risky or prone to failure.
