  11. 11. Business and Technical Drivers with AWS…. Reduce costs Reduce on-premises Slash DR budgets by up to 50% Eliminate 30%+ of on-premises physical equipment Consolidate sites Remove aging technologies Eliminate the need to run a secondary site Eliminate tape for backup and archive
  12. 12.

  13. 13. You can have different DR solutions • • • • Easy to integrate existing vendors with DR on AWS Approach: One vendor/hybrid/multiple vendors One region/multi-regions (if you need geo-diversity) Different DR Architectures Backup & Restore Pilot light Warm standby in AWS Multi-site solution in AWS & onpremises
  14. 14. DR & business continuity Assets will sit on a spectrum of technical complexity… Rebuild when required from offsite backup Run hot-hot configuration with auto-failover Recovery Time Objective (RTO) Recovery Point Objective (RPO) How quickly you need this asset to be recovered? How ‘fresh’ the recovery must be for the asset? e.g. 1min? 15min? 1hr? 4hrs? 1day? e.g. zero data loss, 15mins out of date?
  15. 15. Backup and DR with AWS Backup and Storage Options
  16. 16. Storage Options Elastic Block Store Simple Storage Service Glacier High performance block storage device Highly scalable object storage Long term object archive 1GB to 1TB in size 1 byte to 5TB in size Extremely low cost per gigabyte Mount as drives to instances with 99.999999999% durability 99.999999999% durability snapshot/cloning functionalities Very fast ‘instance’ disks Fast web object storage Slow, rare access
  17. 17. Storage Gateway – Connect On-Prem with the AWS Cloud 1. Local, low-latency access to the most frequently used files while storing all data in Amazon S3 (Cached-Volumes) Or 2. Scheduled off-site backups to Amazon S3 for on-premises data (Stored-Volumes)

  34. 34. About Us • • • • • Makhteshim Agan is the world's leader in branded off-patent crop protection solutions. This is how we help solve one of the world's greatest challenges, a sustainable and secure food supply. Sales on 2013 – close to 3 Billion US $ to around 105 countries About 40 Subsidiaries around the glob Each subsidiary has its own IT infrastructure Centralized applications and data consolidation is done at MA headquarters. 34
  35. 35. Our Main Challenges (before AWS) Large number of subsidiaries, each uses it’s own on premises infrastructure • • • • • • • • Physical Security Stable power (UPS and generators) Air Conditioning Hardware maintenance Server redundancy Reliable access Backup and disaster recovery Setup takes long time 35
  36. 36. The Conclusion • • • • Move to a public cloud other than on premises AWS was the natural choice decision Find a strong AWS partner to work with Emind Systems, an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner • Cloud Architects • DevOps & deployment team • 24/7 Cloud Operation team 36
  37. 37. The Solution • • • • • • • • Secured cloud environment • Multiple VPC across multiple regions • Secure access over VPN Windows & Linux servers Full backup to the cloud Quick recovery Seamless expansion Always available, always accessible Flexible cost model Backup to cloud is fast 37
  38. 38. MA is whole more flexible now • All new small subsidiaries are deployed on AWS • Hand-in-hand with Emind’s team • Constantly adding more services and application to the cloud • Just in time deployment of AD-HOC global projects and services 38
  39. 39. Ausenco Offices • ASX200 company • Head office in Brisbane • 29 Offices in 19 countries • 3500 Employees
  40. 40. The Result • • • Low effort Incremental rollout Cloud migration • • • Efficient, effective usage of bandwidth Application/database servers Regionalised deployment

  43. 43. The new HA/DR continuum… App DR with Standby
  44. 44. Reducing Costs • AWS cost reduction (e.g, S3 cost reduction on Apr 2nd 2013) • Reduced redundancy (Amazon S3) • Retention policy • Hot/warm/cool/cold backup Reserved capacity/tiers Standard $/GB/Month Reduced $/GB/Month 0–1 TB 0.095 0.076 1–50 TB 0.080 0.064 50–500 TB 0.070 0.056 500–1,000 TB • Amazon S3 0.065 0.052 1–5 PB 0.060 0.048 5+ PB 0.055 0.037
