Join Amazon Web Services for a webinar on how others are using the AWS Cloud to enable faster disaster recovery of their IT systems without incurring infrastructure expenses. Join us for an informative webinar on how AWS Cloud supports many popular disaster recovery (DR) architectures from “pilot light” environments that are ready to scale up at a moment’s notice to “hot standby” environments that enable rapid fail-over. With infrastructure centers in 10 regions around the world, AWS provides a set of cloud-based DR services that enable rapid recovery of your IT infrastructure and data.

AWS Webcast - Discover Disaster Recovery Solutions in the Cloud AWS Webcast - Discover Disaster Recovery Solutions in the Cloud Presentation Transcript

  • Using the AWS Cloud for Disaster Recovery Gerard Ngo – Account Manager Leo Zhadanovsky – Sr. Solutions Architect Education and State/Local Government
  • What is AWS? Basics of Disaster Recovery Why AWS for Disaster Recovery? AWS services that can be employed Common DR architectures Agenda
  • What is AWS?
  • Application Services Compute Storage Databases Networking AWS Global Infrastructure Deployment & Administration AWS Platform
  • AWS Global Infrastructure 10 Regions consisting of 26 Availability Zones and 51 Edge Locations (CDN) Customer Decides Where Applications and Data Reside
  • AWS Region View - Independent/Separate Geographic Areas - Isolated from other Regions (security boundary) - = ~50 mile radius “clustered” data center architecture - Comprised of multiple Availability Zones - Availability Zone = 1 or more “data center” - Availability Zones connected through redundant low- latency links - Customer chooses a Region and Data stays within Region. - Enables High-Availability Architecture Availability Zone A Availability Zone B Availability Zone C Sample US Region
  • AWS Availability Zone (AZ) View - Multiple Isolated locations within a Region - Availability Zone = 1 or more “data center” - Independent Failure Zone - Physically separated - On separate Low Risk Flood Plains - Discrete UPS - Onsite backup generation facilities - Fed from different segments of utility provider - Redundantly connected to multiple tier-1 ISP’s - No “Disaster Recovery Datacenter” - Built for Continuous Availability - Customer decides Availability Zone for Compute Availability Zone A Availability Zone B Availability Zone C Sample US Region ~ Data Center
  • Trusted by Enterprises Around the World
  • Public Sector Customers Worldwide 3800 public sector customers across the globe!
  • Certifications SOC 2 ISO 27001 PCI DSS for EC2, S3, EBS, VPC, RDS, ELB, IAM FISMA Moderate Compliant Controls HIPAA & ITAR Compliant Architecture Physical Security Datacenters in nondescript facilities Physical access strictly controlled Must pass two-factor authentication at least twice for floor access Physical access logged and audited HW, SW, Network Systematic change management Phased updates deployment Safe storage decommission Automated monitoring and self-audit Advanced network protection Built to enterprise security standards http://aws.amazon.com/security
  • Basics of Disaster Recovery
  • DR is part of a wider set of policies and controls… DR & business continuity It’s not an all or nothing thing Choose what needs to failover and what does not Some things more important than others Some things will still be working High availability Backup Disaster recovery Keep your applications running 24x7 Make sure your data is protected and can be recovered if it is lost Get your applications and data back after a major disaster
  • Each set of IT assets will have different requirements… DR & business continuity Recovery Time Objective (RTO) How quickly you need this asset to be recovered? e.g. 1min? 15min? 1hr? 4hrs? 1day? Recovery Point Objective (RPO) How ‘fresh’ the recovery must be for the asset? e.g. zero data loss, 15mins out of date?
  • Assets will sit on a spectrum of technical complexity… DR & business continuity Rebuild when required from offsite backup Run hot-hot configuration with auto-failover
  • Why AWS for Disaster Recovery?
  • The fundamental economic model… Traditional, second datacenter Primary Site Routers Firewalls Network Application Licenses Operating Systems Hypervisor Servers SAN fabric Primary Storage Backup Archive Secondary Site Routers Firewalls Network Application Licenses Operating Systems Hypervisor Servers SAN fabric Primary Storage Backup Archive
  • The fundamental economic model… Utility, on-demand datacenter Primary Site Routers Firewalls Network Application Licenses Operating Systems Hypervisor Servers SAN fabric Primary Storage Backup Archive AWS Routers Firewalls Network Application Licenses Operating Systems Hypervisor Servers SAN fabric Snapshot Storage Backup Archive Secondary site costs
  • With utility services you might be able to: Business & technical drivers Reduce costs Slash DR budgets by up to 50% Reduce on-premise Eliminate 30%+ of on-premise physical equipment Consolidate sites Eliminate the need to run a secondary site Remove aging technologies Eliminate tape for backup and archive
  • Challenges around Cost Conventional DR Sites High Cost Low ROI Implemented only for most critical systems Usually scaled down to 50% of production Systems in a remote region challenging
  • Cost Effective – On Demand Infrastructure Disaster Recovery on AWS Unprecedented capabilities to implement DR sites Easily set up DR sites on different geographic regions Cut down DR site cost by up to 70% Substantial savings on software licenses
  • AWS services that can be employed
  • Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) AWS Import/Export AWS Storage Gateway Service AWS Direct Connect Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Amazon Route 53 Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS) Object storage & transfer services Networking services Foundation services
  • S3 and Elastic Block Store AWS storage is ideal for DR Simple Storage Service Highly scalable object storage 1 byte to 5TB in size 99.999999999% durability Elastic Block Store High performance block storage device Volumes of 1GB to 1TB in size Mount as drives to instances with snapshot/cloning functionalities
  • Glacier Durable Designed for 99.999999999% durability of archives Cost effective Write-once, read-never. Cost effective for long term storage. Pay for accessing data 3 to 5 hour Retrieval time
  • Direct Connect Dedicated connection between your IT infrastructure and the AWS datacenters Extend your network infrastructure and VLANs into AWS VPN Connection A Hardware VPN connection connects amazon environment to your datacenter Internet Protocol security (IPsec) VPN connection Commonly used hardware supported Virtual Private Cloud Private, isolated section of the AWS Cloud Launch resources in a virtual network that you define complete control over your virtual networking environment Internet Internet Connecting to AWS
  • Common DR architectures
  • 4 main patterns Common DR architectures Backup & Restore Pilot light Warm standby in AWS Multi-site solution in AWS & on-premise
  • Let’s start with Backup & Restore Common DR architectures Backup & Restore Pilot light Warm standby in AWS Multi-site solution in AWS & on-premise
  • Advantages to starting a journey with this pattern Backup & Restore pattern Simple to get started Easy starting point for exploring the AWS cloud Low technical barrier to entry Focus on incorporating cloud into your DR strategy, not on complex technical issues related to hot-hot systems Cost effective Very high levels of data durability at low price Cost of storing snapshots in S3 Archiving possibilities beyond tape using Glacier
  • The preparation process… Backup & Restore pattern Take backups of current systems Store backups in S3 Move to long term archive in Glacier
  • The process… Backup & Restore pattern Take backups of current systems Store backups in S3 Detail how you will restoring from backup or recover from archive Move to long term archive in Glacier
  • Push backups to AWS
  • Recover servers during DR
  • Let’s look at the Pilot Light pattern… Common DR architectures Backup & Restore Pilot light Warm standby in AWS Multi-site solution in AWS & on-premise
  • Moving along the DR spectrum… Pilot light architecture Build resources around replicated dataset Keep ‘pilot light’ on by replicating core databases Build AWS resources around dataset and leave in stopped state Scale resources in AWS in response to a DR event Start up pool of resources in AWS when events dictate Match current production capacity through auto-scaling policies
