Effective Backup and Disaster Recovery in AWS

Anoop Prasad | 29 Feb 2016

According to a study by Amazon Web Services, more than three-quarters (82%) of organizations have plans to leverage cloud-based services to some extent in the immediate future. Clearly, the cost, agility, and flexibility advantages are too apparent to ignore, particularly for tasks such as disaster recovery (DR).

DR is essential because every organization is exposed to a range of outages and failures. Computer viruses are commonplace; applications and disk drives are susceptible to failures; data can become corrupted, and there is a high likelihood of human error as a threat. Other “real” disasters like floods, fires, power failures, or weather-related issues can’t be negated. Irrespective of the catastrophe being due to technical failure or natural phenomena, this unintended downtime must be quickly addressed by IT organizations to help restore the business to an operational state.

The lack of a DR strategy and plan carries a massive risk. Business downtime can mean big losses in productivity. Such failures can cause irreparable damage to reputations and/or financial losses.

Safeguarding Data with AWS

Protecting data in the cloud is of utmost importance not only to protect information but also to gain customer trust. AWS provides a global, flexible IT infrastructure known for scalability, reliability, and security. When data is copied to the AWS cloud, it is stored in one of the eight global AWS Regions. AWS never relocates customer data beyond the user-defined Region to meet customers’ regulatory and/or legal compliance needs.

AWS provides some of the most advanced security features in the industry. AWS services are designed for an environment with extensive and validated security and controls, including Service Organization Controls 1 (SOC 1), ISO 270001 Certification, and PCI DSS12 Level 1 compliance among others. Some of the services include:
