  2. 2. What’s This All About, Then? ▪ The scope of this presentation is total loss of a datacenter/operation ▪ The goal is to establish basic operations but a discussion of Business Continuity is out of scope ▪ We’ll look at additional leverage provided by the recovery solution ▪ Questions ▪ Interesting presentation from Georgia Power!

  5. 5. Cloud and/or multi-site redundancy? Both may be better! Cloud ▪ Little to maintain ▪ Geographically redundant ▪ Scales quickly ▪ No assets ▪ Easy to include partner agencies Multiple Sites ▪ Operating space for displaced employees ▪ Not Internet reliant ▪ Predictable cost ▪ Can build partnerships ▪ High bandwidth (Sneakernet)

  7. 7. Our Sample Use Case ● Athens-Clarke County: population 116,000 ● Data will come in from and support multiple departments/agencies (Planning, Assessor, Fire, PD, UGA, Traffic Engineering, Dispatch, State and Federal agencies) ● Multi-site agency ● Agencies and partners (such as utility organizations) should be able to submit data ● Metadata should be captured ● Technicians will analyze data ● Customers need actionable data products
  8. 8. Data Reconstruction Workflow Optional Web Interface FME Server API/Web Interface FME Workspaces Amazon Cloud DB (RDS for PostgreSQL Optional Web Mapping (OpenGeo)
  9. 9. Advantages of a Web interface ▪ Abstract and centralize access (S3 IAM keys, FME Cloud API keys, web interface roles) ▪ Simplify workflows for users, who may be untrained ▪ Spin up entire DR stack on demand ▪ Branding/Organizational Identification ▪ No resources required on-premises (which is gone, remember?)

  19. 19. TL;DL: FME Cloud Server Saves the Day! ▪ Up and running faster than you can move to your backup site ▪ AWS scales to meet massive data needs ▪ Inexpensive: FME Cloud Server starts at $1/hour! ▪ With APIs, whole process can be automated ▪ All stakeholders can easily submit data which is robustly served to all customers ▪ Can be part of an existing data continuity plan ▪ Provides opportunities for other business units, providing organization-wide leverage
