AWS DISASTER RECOVERY
Stay up to date with the latest resources and best practices for Disaster Recovery on AWS.
With Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Tangent Solutions, you gain access to a global infrastructure that enables you to seamlessly establish a reliable and highly available disaster recovery (DR) solution. Your organisation can spin up resources on an as-needed, pay-as-you-go basis and enable continuity to mitigate disasters, while realising significant cost savings compared to a physical DR site.
Having the ability to deploy your infrastructure and restore your data, only in the event of a disaster saves you money as you only pay for the infrastructure when it is running.
Leveraging AWS for DR allows you to leverage on-demand DR infrastructure rather than paying for dedicated assets in a physical environment, replacing large scale capital expenditure (CapEx) with much lower operational expenses (OpEx).
AWS’s rapid storing and retrieval of files enables you to meet a variety of recovery time objectives (RTOs). Fast retrieval allows organizations to avoid fines for missing compliance deadlines.
AWS Application Discovery Service collects information on inbound and outbound network activity, such as server hostnames, IP addresses, media access control (MAC) addresses, and resource allocation, and utilization details of key resources, providing insight into dependencies across servers.
AWS allows you to test your target DR systems in whichever manner best meets your needs. Updating DR plans, managing the minimal infrastructure needed to keep your failover site prepared, and testing target DR systems are all a button away.
AWS can enable rapid disaster recovery of critical IT systems without incurring the infrastructure expense of a second physical site.
AWS supports many popular DR architectures, including Pilot Light, Warm Standby, and Multi-Site environments. Click the video to the left to learn more.
