Advanced Strategies for Leveraging AWS for Disaster Recovery

786

Published on

Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides powerful APIs and services that enable AWS to be used for production use cases, including “pay as you go” disaster recovery (DR) in the cloud.

In this presentation you’ll learn about, and see how, CloudVelocity automates processes to leverage these APIs for entire app environments, from the OS to configurations, updates, patches, and even IP addresses. This helps businesses use the AWS Cloud to enable faster disaster recovery of their critical IT systems without incurring the infrastructure expense of a second physical site. The webinar will also demonstrate a live migration of a multi-tier app and environment into AWS for DR, and the impact of automation on DR deployment for the City of Asheville, NC.

  11. 11. 26April 30, 2014 How We Do It Secure Network Extension OHC™ Platform Customer Data Center OHC™ Platform • Discover hosts (physical or VMs) in the application and map dependencies • Blueprint hosts: static and dynamic workload characterization • Provision EBS Storage Volumes • Start continuous replication and synchronization of all hosts • Pilot Light is on after initial sync has completed • Failover – Launch instances Application or Site Downtime
  12. 12. 27April 30, 2014 Demo Drag and Drop Automation — Automation of many critical processes reduces deployment cost
  13. 13. 28April 30, 2014 City of Asheville - Before Uneven Protection — “Urgent” systems protected, “important” systems not Unacceptable DR Location — DR site 2 blocks away, unfunded $200k DR proposal No Automation — Virtualization useful but not sufficient — Almost no DR exercises because of manual switch RTO = 12 hours, RPO = Evenings
  14. 14. 29April 30, 2014 City of Asheville - Before DR excellence (based on traditional IT) was a challenge • High fixed capex, no pay-go • Uneven protection • Limited agility • Geography risks • Limited DR testing – no automation
  15. 15. 30April 30, 2014 City of Asheville before CloudVelocity DR Point of Sale App — Supports event ticket sales at US Cellular Center, 7500 seat arena — Need for DR: an outage during an event impacts sales volume until system can be restored from backup; manual sales slows down process Asset Management App — Used by Asheville to track work orders, maintenance and infrastructure asset management — Need for DR: an outage requires restore from backup with possible loss of one day of data and increased difficulty tracking work orders City of Asheville Data Center OHC™ Platform PoS GUI AMS GUI Web Microsoft IIS App Micros Symphony SQL SVR 2008 DB SQL SVR 2005 Prod Dev Microsoft IIS Maximo IBM WebSphere

  17. 17. 32April 30, 2014 City of Asheville - After Pilot Light DR on AWS - No massive capex commitments - Enhanced security versus existing datacenter Agility and Fairness – Can scale up and down to meet growth - Pay as you go offers fair usage-based cost Geographic Diversity – DR on AWS West Region, not two blocks away - Local/regional problem – power, earthquake – doesn’t affect AWS Extended Protection - More apps protected, “urgent” and “important” - Security – implemented AWS, City security guidelines, tested RTO = 2 hours / RPO = 4 hours
  18. 18. 33April 30, 2014 Lessons Learned • Deep testing of app needed • Don’t take license keys for granted • Don’t test the same day as Bleeding Heart  • Watch out for poorly set-up apps (plaintext passwords over http) • Internal vs external DNS & certs
  19. 19. 34April 30, 2014 The Power of Pilot Light DR 1) No upfront capital investment 2) No long term commitment 3) No risky capacity planning 4) Usage-based costs 5) Geographic locality control 6) Extended protection to important yet unprotected apps Up to 90% cost savings compared to traditional DR approaches. Enterprise class DR without the complexity and cost of traditional DR
  20. 20. 35April 30, 2014 JetStream Program • First 15 companies or cities (250+ employees) • 90 day PoC trial, launched by June 7, 2014 • Includes deployment services pack • Windows or Linux • Pilot Light DR on AWS or R2R Failover on AWS • $25,000 Value - does not include AWS charges greg@cloudvelocity.com for details
