    • 13. 13Best Practices DiscussionAWS ArchitecturesJason Foster – VP of Engineering
    • 14. 14High Availability on AWS• Plan for failure at any level• Services within a Datacenter (AZs) can fail• Regions are N+2 (minimum)• Reserve capacity (the other side of Reserved Instances)• Use AWS Services that scale across AZs• VPC, S3, ELB, RDS, etc.• Chaos Monkey – now available
    • 15. 15HA ExampleNotes:• HA at each tier• Can lose entire datacenter and maintain production load• Autoscaling at web and API tier to support dynamic site load• High Data security requirements – HA at IDS, Log Mgmt and auditing tiers
    • 16. Fault-Tolerant Front-End Systems16• Addressing: Route53, EIP• Distribution: Multi-AZ, ELB, Cloudfront• Redundancy: Auto-Scaling• Monitoring: Cloudwatch• Platform: Elastic BeanstalkAmazon CloudFrontAmazon CloudWatchAuto ScalingAmazon Route53Elastic LoadBalancerAWS ElasticBeanstalkElastic IP

    • 18. 18Disaster Recovery on AWSClasses of RTOs• Critical – Real-time availabilityor near real-time (minutes) –Tier 0 infrastructure, criticalapps• Major – Applications to run thebusiness (hours) – Tier 1infrastructure and apps• Minor – Applications that canwithstand a longer downtime(hours - days)AWS Solution• HighAvailability orWarm Standby• Pilot Light DRin AWS• Backup andRecovery in AWS
    • 19. 19Other DR Considerations on AWS• “SAN like snapshots” of EBS storage allow recovery to a point in timewithin seconds – replicated across the entire region (3+ datacenters)• Auto-scaling and scripting allow backup server to be fully cost optimized• Example: 2W Backup Server < $1 per month• Pilot Light scenarios
    • 20. Advantages of a Pilot Light DR Scenario Warm standby for the price of cold storage Or Less! Super fast recovery time Entire recovery process could be 1-3 hours Data replication can keep critical systems in sync
