Immersion Day: Storage & Disaster Recovery on AWS

Sci-fi Transmitter Antenna.G16.2k

Organizations are generating exponentially increasing volumes of information and finding themselves with a need to back up and archive that data for the long-term. Customers in industries including financial services and healthcare may be subject to regulatory requirements mandating that they retain data for years, or even indefinitely. In addition to duration, these regulatory requirements and the customer's own business policies often place specific requirements on how data is stored. 

Subsequently, organizations need to plan for IT disasters such as datacenter failures, server corruptions, or cyber-attacks, that can not only disrupt the business, but also cause data loss, impact revenue, and damage reputation for your customers. Work on disaster recovery starts by tiering your workloads and defining the recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO) for each tier. A disaster recovery (DR) strategy is then created by defining objectives such as: backup and restore, active/passive (pilot light or warm standby), or active/active.

AWS can help customers solve for storage and disaster recovery requirements through the use of services such as Amazon S3, Amazon EFS, Amazon EBS, Tape Gateway, AWS Storage Gateway, and Amazon S3 Glacier.
