The power of AI comes with a powerful responsibility – AI for Business

I’m beyond excited to be here in London with my Microsoft colleagues, as well as innovators, researchers, experts and business decision-makers from around the world at Future Decoded. Over the next two days, we will hear inspiring stories about the possibilities that exist for artificial intelligence to transform the future of work in every industry – and how critical it is that businesses foster a culture that includes everyone as we search for ways to incorporate AI responsibly.

This morning’s announcement that Microsoft is collaborating with Novartis to use AI to develop treatments and medications faster has the potential to improve patients’ lives across the globe. A critical component of our work together is the commitment by Novartis to take AI across the entire organization.

This will enable Novartis to bring together previously siloed data sets and research, and to use AI to build upon existing work quickly and efficiently. But it will also do something that might be even more important: It will empower Novartis associates.

Whether they work in research and development, commercial, operations, finance or elsewhere, Novartis associates are being asked to join this AI transformation. Their contributions and voices matter and are vital to the organization’s success.

Advocating a holistic approach

A cultural transformation is required for a company like Novartis to implement an AI strategy successfully throughout the organization. It requires empathetic leadership, collaboration across departments, trust among employees and a willingness to accept change. It’s not an easy feat. We at Microsoft know this because we haven’t always gotten it right the first time out of the gate. We are happy to share our learnings and best practices with our partners and customers, and with business decision-makers at large through our AI Business School, a free online master class series.

We launched AI Business School because we knew AI will be used more and more to help businesses innovate and solve problems, and we wanted to help business leaders be ready to do so with confidence. We recognized that every industry in the private and public sector faces its own challenges, and we wanted to provide concrete examples for each of them through tailored information and real-world case studies. Today, we are excited to roll out a new release of AI Business School, with expanded information for government leaders, new and adapted lessons within our responsible AI module and a new learning path for education industry decision-makers and educators.

Responsible AI: The expanded responsible AI content aims to illustrate how organizations can put principles into practice. As an example, we share a view on design principles for building AI solutions, plus a video on what tools can help you develop responsible AI.  We also have a new video Q&A with Matt Fowler, VP and Head of Machine Learning, Enterprise Data and Analytics at TD Bank Group, who talks about his company’s AI journey. Plus, trusted AI expert Cathy Cobey from EY shares how to make governance both tangible and measurable.

Education: We teamed up with education experts including Michelle Zimmerman, author of “Teaching AI: Exploring New Frontiers for Learning,” to highlight ways AI can transform classrooms as well as the operations and processes of learning institutions. We know that educators and administrators at every level of education are being asked to do more with less, and AI can help.

Government: A new module about identifying governing practices for responsible AI in government draws on the wisdom from experts at EY and Altimeter Group. We share examples from governments around the world to shed light on what government officials should consider and how to take action.

In addition to continually bolstering the online learning experience, we partner with customers around the globe for in-person training and collaboration. For example, UK enterprise customers will soon be able to participate in AI Business School sessions in the Microsoft Store in London!

I believe that helping everyone understand how to better approach AI can be a boon to every industry, and to society at large. I have been overwhelmed by the feedback and engagement with AI Business School, and I am humbled and grateful for the many conversations it has enabled with customers and business leaders!

One such customer is TD Bank, whose leaders have sought to advance an industry-wide dialogue on what responsible AI looks like in financial services. Microsoft works with TD on a variety of fronts as the bank continues to advance its AI capabilities.

Adapting to an AI-first world

As AI is adopted across financial services, TD’s leaders believe it’s a critical time to initiate an industry-wide discussion on the unique opportunities and challenges of this technology. TD recently released a report called Responsible AI in Financial Services that brought together perspectives from AI experts and consumers to inform key areas where the financial services industry needs to focus to build best practices for the responsible use of AI. The three areas of focus identified in the report – addressing explainability, controlling for bias and promoting diversity – are informing TD’s work as they develop AI-powered solutions and unlock new and innovative ways to meet customer needs.

Microsoft encourages each of our partners and customers to embed their organizational values into every aspect of their AI strategy. Our own core principles – fairness; reliability and safety; privacy and security; inclusiveness; transparency; and accountability – inform how we develop and design AI.

We continue to invest in the research and creation of tools that can tackle the challenges of bias, privacy, security and interpretability. Just last week we announced a partnership with Harvard University to develop a service for differential privacy that will open new possibilities for groundbreaking research while also protecting sensitive information.

And last month we joined forces with other industry leaders to improve the detection of AI-generated deepfakes. We will continue to make every effort to ensure that this technology we work so hard to advance will be used in ways that will also advance society. Because it is not enough to know that we CAN do something with the help of AI; it is vital that we first ask whether we SHOULD.

As I see it, the biggest potential that AI holds is its ability to help us work together to tackle our toughest problems. I see its possibility to bring people together, to improve lives and to help save our planet. One of our AI for Earth grantees, global nonprofit OceanMind, is doing just this: They are using AI to detect illegal and unregulated fishing, which helps authorities protect ocean life and promote sustainability.

YouTube Video

The responsible creation and use of AI is not the job of any one company, but one that we all share, and it requires the shared responsibility to think about not just what AI can do, but what it should do.  Our overarching goal is to empower everyone to innovate and use AI responsibly so that it reflects their positive goals, good intentions and core values.

How to Customize Site-Aware Clusters and Fault Domains

In this guide, we’ll cover how to create fault domains and configure them in Windows Server 2019. We will also run down the different layers of resiliency provided by Windows Server and fault domain awareness with Storage Spaces Direct. Let’s get started!

Resiliency and High-Availability

Many large organizations deploy their services across multiple data centers to not only provide high-availability but to also support disaster recovery (DR). This allows services to move from servers, virtualization hosts, cluster nodes or clusters in one site to hardware in a secondary location. Prior to the Windows Server 2016 release, this was usually done through deploying a multi-site (or “stretched”) failover cluster. This solution worked well, but it had some gaps in its manageability, namely that it was never easy to determine what hardware was running at each site. Virtual machines (VMs) were also limited to move between cluster nodes and sites, but had no other mobile granularity, even though most datacenters organize their hardware by chassis and racks. With Windows Server 2016 and 2019, Microsoft now provides organizations with the ability to not only have server high-availability but also resiliency to chassis or rack failures and integrated site awareness through “fault domains”.

What is a Fault Domain?

A fault domain is a set of hardware components that have a shared single point of failure, such as a single power source. To provide fault tolerance, you need to have multiple fault domains so that a VM or service can move from one fault domain to another fault domain, such as from one rack to another.

The following image helps you identify these various datacenter components.

Configuring Fault Domains in Windows Server 2019

First, let’s review the different layers of resiliency now provided by Windows Server. The following table shows the hierarchy of the Windows Server hardware stack:

Fault Domain High-Availability
Application Failover clustering is used to automatically restart an application’s services or move it to another cluster node. If the application is running inside a virtual machine (VM) then guest clustering can be used which creates a cluster of virtualized hosts.
Virtual Machine Virtual machines (VMs) run on a failover cluster and can be restarted or failover to another cluster node. A virtualized application can run inside the VM.
Node (Server / Host) A server can move its application to another node on the same chassis using failover clustering. The server is the single point of failure, and this could be caused by an operating system crash.
Chassis A server which has a chassis failure can move to another chassis in the same rack. A chassis is commonly used with blade servers and its single point of failure could be a single power source or fan.
Rack A server which has a rack failure can move to another rack in the same site. A rack may have a single point of failure from its top of rack (TOR) switch.
Site If an entire site is lost, such as from a natural disaster, a server can move to a secondary site (datacenter).

This implementation of fault domains lets you move nodes between different chassis, racks, and sites. Remember that hardware components are only defined by the software, and they do not change the physical configuration of your datacenter. This means that if two nodes are in the same physical chassis and it fails, then both will go offline, even if you have declared them to be in different fault domains via the management interface.

This blog will specifically focus on the latest site availability and fault domain features, but check out Altaro’s blogs on Failover Clustering for more information. Additionally, as a side-note, Altaro VM Backup can provide DR and recovery functionality with its replication engine if desired.

Fault Domain Awareness with Storage Spaces Direct

A key scenario for using fault domains is to distribute your data, not just across different disks and nodes, but also across different chassis, racks and sites so that it is always available in case of an outage. Microsoft implements this using storage spaces direct (S2D) which divides cloned disks across these different fault domains. This allows you to deploy commodity storage drives in your datacenters, and its data is automatically replicated between each disk. In the initial release of S2D, the disks were mirrored between two cluster nodes, that if one failed, the data was already available on the second server. With the added layers of chassis and rack-awareness, additional disks can be created and distributed across different nodes, chassis, racks, and sites, providing granular resiliency throughout the different hardware layers. This means that if a node crashes, the data is still available elsewhere within the same chassis. If an entire chassis loses its power, a copy is on another chassis within the same rack. If a rack becomes unavailable due to a TOR switch misconfiguration, the data can be recovered from another rack. And if the datacenter fails, a copy of the disk is available at the secondary site.

One important consideration is that the site awareness and fault domains must be configured before storage spaces direct is set up. If your S2D cluster is already running and you are configuring fault domains later, you must manually move your nodes int the correct fault domains, first evicting the node from your cluster and its drive from your storage pool using the cmdlet:

Creating Fault Domains

Once you have deployed your hardware and understand the different layers in your hardware stack you will need to enable fault domain awareness. Since a minority of Windows Server users have multiple datacenters, this must be enabled through a command run from any node. Microsoft wanted to avoid exposing it directly through the GUI interface so that inexperienced users did not accidentally turn it on and expect an operation that they lacked the hardware to support. Enable fault domains using the following PowerShell cmdlet:

Remember that this hardware configuration is hierarchical, so nodes are part of chassis, which are stored in racks, which reside in sites. Your nodes will use the actual node name, and this is set automatically, such as N1.contoso.com. Next, you can define all of the different chassis, racks, and sites in your environment using friendly names and descriptions. This is helpful because your event logs will reflect your naming conventions, making troubleshooting easy.

You can name each of your chassis to match your hardware specs, such as a “Chassis 1”.

Next you can assign names to your racks, such as “Rack 1”.

Finally define any sites you have and provide them with a friendly name, like “Primary” or “Seattle”.

For each of these types, you can also use the -Description or -Location switch to add additional contextual information which is displayed in event logs, making troubleshooting and hardware maintenance easier.

Configuring Fault Domains

Once you have defined the different fault domains, you can configure their hierarchical structure using a parent (and child) relationship. Starting with the node, you define which chassis they belong to and then move up the chain. For example, you may configure nodes N1 and N2 to be part of chassis C1 using PowerShell:

Similarly, you may set chassis C1 and C2 to reside in rack R1:

Then configure racks R1 and R2 within the primary datacenter using:

To view your configuration and these relationships, run the Get-ClusterFaultDomain cmdlet.

You can also define the relationship of the hardware in an XML file. This method is described in Microsoft’s Fault domain awareness page. If you want to dig deeper, check out the full PowerShell syntax.

Wrap-Up

Now you are able to take advantage of the latest site-awareness features for Windows Server Failover Clustering, giving you additional resiliency throughout your hardware stack. We’ll have further content focused on this area in the near future, so stay tuned!

Finally, what about you? Do you see this being useful in your organization? Do you see any barrier to implementation? Let us know in the comments section below!
