Claim of US Patent No. 10,656,990

1. A method comprising:determining, by a capacity allocation system, a reserve portion capacity of a reserve portion, and an allocation portion capacity of an allocation portion, of a first site based upon a probability of failure associated with a second site, wherein the reserve portion receives a first cluster from the second site when disaster conditions are detected, and wherein the allocation portion enables a second cluster from the second site to run on the first site under non-disaster conditions;
determining, by the capacity allocation system, that a number of failures at the second site exceeds a first pre-determined threshold; and
dynamically adjusting, by the capacity allocation system, the reserve portion capacity and the allocation portion capacity of the first site based upon the number of the failures.
