How to Implement Disaster Recovery in the Cloud


Published on

Learn how disaster recovery in the cloud makes DR easy, efficient and affordable. Cloud-based Recovery-as-a-Service is the latest in disaster recovery technology. Recovery-as-a-Service (RaaS) is the ideal on-ramp to cloud to solve your need to recover quickly, easily and efficiently after a disaster strikes.

Learn how four companies architected their RaaS solutions and protected entire applications in the cloud while reducing costs.

- Protect and recover applications quickly
- Lower costs while improving RTO and RPOs
- Implement easy and affordable testing
- Recover into an enterprise-grade cloud environment
- Reduce downtime and business risk

  12. 12. @Bluelock | www.bluelock.comChoose Your Recovery Point•  You are not limited to recovering from just the latest instance•  Choose from recovery points prior to the disaster, allowingpeace of mind that you’ll bring back your workload from anon-corrupted state
  13. 13. @Bluelock | www.bluelock.comZero Footprint, Extremely Efficient•  Replicates at thehypervisor level:–  No agent installation orrebooting of applicationsto get up and running–  No rework of theapplication requiredDon’t force your app to fit the DR.Choose DR that fits the app.
  14. 14. @Bluelock | www.bluelock.comWhat’s Stopping You?•  If the world is a scarier place and you’re moreat risk and new DR solutions are morecompelling—why aren’t you doing this?– Not a priority– DR is too expensive– Connecting to the cloud is complex– Cloud is still scary– Not in our skill set to plan and manage DR

  17. 17. @Bluelock | www.bluelock.comTo-Cloud RaaS Use Case #1:Education•  Did not have a cloud strategy, RaaS was firstforay into cloud–  Keeping existing datacenter for most workloads•  High-risk location for hurricanes•  Needed aggressive RTO/RPO forproduction apps•  Couldn’t fit DR into budget based ontraditional warm-site model; highly costsensitive
  18. 18. @Bluelock | www.bluelock.comTo-Cloud RaaS Use Case #2:Financial and Healthcare•  Compliance-sensitive workloads•  Was backing up to cloud but moved toRaaS for better application protection– Needed RaaS to backup cloud assets, withautomation (efficiency)•  More aggressive RTO/RPO to returnproduction apps to service quickly,meet requirements

  20. 20. @Bluelock | www.bluelock.comIn-Cloud RaaS Use Case #1:Software•  Production SaaS app currently running inthe cloud•  Needed to protect the application fromdisruption because it’s a primary revenuesource•  DR was expensive, but RaaS offered thevalue and efficient pricing that madeprotection possible
  21. 21. @Bluelock | www.bluelock.comIn-Cloud RaaS Use Case #2:Technology•  Production SaaS app hosted in the cloud•  Concerns over data corruption (SQL andsoftware updates)•  Protected by consistency groups andrecovery points•  Easy testing—it had to work!
