The solution is sufficient at bare minimum, if the business continuity and disaster recovery plans are documented and regularly tested. The plans and the regular tests will insure smooth recovery process in case of system failures. We are convinced that all companies and institutes want to protect their applications and data against outages and disaster.
Nevertheless to be able to implement the plans properly, internal expertise and financial coverage is often missing.
When designing classic disaster recovery solutions, the cost of the solution versus the affordable data loss need to be considered. Cloud based disaster recovery solutions are enabled to serve the changing capacity demands within the shortest timeframe to protect the business continuity.
In case of a cloud based disaster recovery service, duplicating the primary IT site is unnecessary, so you save the investment of the secondary site hardware costs, and the further operational and software licenses costs. The more flexible, and usage based cloud contracts ensures that the company pays solely for what it uses. Considering the disaster recovery requirements, this solution comes with a more practical and more sustainable operating model. This approach comes with a shorter recovery time, the highest security, and the lowest costs to the business continuity.
The most important values are; RTO (Recovery Time Objective) is the targeted duration of time and a service level within which a business process must be restored after a disaster; RPO (Recovery Point Objective) is the maximum targeted period in which data might be lost from an IT service due to a major incident. To set up the RTO/RPO values, first, one has to analyze the financial impact of an outage. This analytics focuses on affecting business results and reputation especially.
The Amazon Web Services (AWS) supports several disaster recovery methods. The (DR) architectures from “pilot light” environments, that may scale up within a short time, to “hot standby” environments, which have nearly the same infrastructure as the primary site has, enable rapid failover at scale.
The AWS global Infrastructure has 16 Regions and 42 Availability Zones, which are distinct physically separated locations. Availability Zones consist of one or more discrete data centers.
AWS continuously develops the security standards and the industry specific attestations of conformity to comply with.
The largest advantages of the AWS disaster recovery service are the outstanding performance, the “No-Tape” practice, the extensive compliancy, the elasticity and the highly developed security.
It is expertise the most important criteria to develop cloud based IT. The AWS is a uniquely efficient solution, we can help you to benefit from.
