Improve documentation for platform and services to include information on High Availability and Backup

I really like the documentation layout for the various services and offerings in Bluemix.
However, it would be good if there was a section in each giving useful information when consuming the service in production, or even just designing for production.
- How is High Availability managed
* for example with CloudAMPQ handled automatically + some info about this, like SLA, etc
* For CloudFoundry Runtime, what is needed to ensure no single point of failure (for example to ensure that runtime is hosted on multiple hosts/regions or whatever is needed
- Where relevant, like database and other data services, is data backed up, what will a user need to back up data, etc, etc
- SLAs for services, etc

    Adding support on behalf of Henrik Loeser and other dev advocates: What are the best practices to achieve high availability, especially for database systems, in the cloud? How could multiple data centers be used for HA? What are the plans for having multiple data centers in Europe? etc.

    All info that needs to be documented and suggested.

    The docs team has provided guidance for service teams on how and where to document HA and DR for their particular services.
