The Enterprise 2.0 conference currently being held in Boston reminds us that mission-critical web-based applications require high availability. Unfortunately, some enterprise 2.0 application vendors take development shortcuts resulting in poor reliability, which angers users and damages the developer's credibility.

In  this podcast, I speak with Rod Boothby, fellow Enterprise Irregular and head of platform evangelism for Joyent, a hosting provider for cloud computing. Rod discusses enterprise 2.0 reliability from technical and management perspectives, explaining shortsighted development and architectural decisions that cause cloud computing applications to fail.

If reliability problems with Twitter and other services annoy you, listen to this podcast and hear from an expert.
