Abstract

This article describes a method by which a predictive failure alert (PFA) can initiate a workflow in provisioning software which will automatically deploy another server with the same function, add the new server to the load balancer, quiesce the failing server, then remove the failing server without degrading the performance or capacity of the application using the server.
