Backup on the cloud Webinar

  1. 1. Backup on the CloudMike IzumiCloud Architect2nd Watch
  2. 2.  Backups - Traditional vs. Cloud AWS Backup, Archival & DR Tools DR – Traditional vs. AWS Solutions HA Using AWS Solutions Q&AConfidential. Property of 2nd Watch, Inc. 2
  3. 3.  Long/slow recovery time Low durability (higher probability for dataloss)Confidential. Property of 2nd Watch, Inc. 3
  4. 4.  Requires Tape Museums Expensive Tech Refresh Disaster Recovery– Complex and highly cost-prohibitiveConfidential. Property of 2nd Watch, Inc. 4
  5. 5.  Eleven 9s (that’s 99.999999999%) of durability(S3/Glacier) Seamless integration with existing AWS infrastructure Lifecycle Management built in via “Lifecycle Policies”5
  6. 6.  Numerous options for transferring data in/out andsyncing The typical reasons for using AWS apply (e.g. ReduceCapEx, Reduce TCO, industry compliances) Affordable and manageable DR with “Pilot Light”6
  7. 7.  S3 (backup/recovery) Glacier (archival) EBS snapshots AWS Import/Export (used for seeding largedata sets)Confidential. Property of 2nd Watch, Inc. 7
  8. 8.  Storage Gateway Pilot Light (Disaster Recovery) Warm Standby (taking Pilot Light a stepfurther to achieve fault tolerance betweenon premise and AWS DR resources)Confidential. Property of 2nd Watch, Inc. 8
  9. 9. 9 Durable and low cost (1GB < $0.10 per month) Unlimited number of objects and volume Backup from any system directly to S3 buckets viaHTTP/HTTPS– Create scripts using PowerShell, Perl, Python…– Numerous solutions for data copy and synch
  10. 10.  Easily create lifecycle rules− Delete or archive to Glacier− Single rule for the bucket or multiple based on object prefix Security− Control access thru policies and ACLs− Auditable access− Encryption in flight and at rest (SSL & SSE)− Versioning in case of accidentaldeletion10
  11. 11. 11• Secure and Cost effectiveOffsite data archiving• Tape Replacement forbackup and recovery• Long term digitalpreservation for historicaland digital information
  12. 12. 12 “SAN like snapshots” of EBS storage allow recovery to apoint in time – replicated across the entire region (3+AZ/datacenters) Auto-scaling and scripting allow backup server to befully cost optimizedExample: 2W Backup Server < $1 per month
  13. 13.  Quickly migrate large amounts of data in/out of AWS– Seeding initial datasets– Copying offsite backups into S3, EBS, Glacier– Retrieval of offsite backups and datasetsConfidential. Property of 2nd Watch, Inc. 13
  14. 14.  Cloud backed storage running as an on premisesoftware appliance Utilizes durable Amazon S3 for primary storage andEBS Snapshots14
  15. 15. Confidential. Property of 2nd Watch, Inc. 15Gateway-Cached• Frequently accessed data iscached on premise• Cost savings on storage• Mount volumes up to 32TB• With up to 150 TBs totalstorageGateway-Stored• Low-latency access to allyour data• Asynchronous backup to S3as EBS Snapshots• Mount volumes up to 1TB• Up to 12TBs of total storage
  16. 16.  Average fully managed costs of DR > $1 per GB ofprotected data Recovering from backups can take days Backup tapes add risk and time to recovery– Do you have all the tapes you need– Are the resources available to do the restorationsConfidential. Property of 2nd Watch, Inc. 16
  17. 17.  Did you know?– Businesses spend over 80% of their IT budget on keepingthe lights onIf you have an outage will it be a disaster?Confidential. Property of 2nd Watch, Inc. 17
  18. 18. 18Classes of RTOs Critical – Real-time availability or near real-time (minutes) – Tier 0 infrastructure,critical apps Major – Applications to run the business(hours) – Tier 1 infrastructure and apps Minor – Applications that can withstand alonger downtime (hours - days)AWS Solution• High Availabilityor WarmStandby• Pilot Light DR inAWS• Backup andRecovery in AWS
  19. 19. Confidential. Property of 2nd Watch, Inc. 19Classes of RTOs Critical – Real-time availabilityor near real-time (minutes) –Tier 0 infrastructure, criticalapps Major – Applications to runthe business (hours) – Tier 1infrastructure and apps Minor – Applications that canwithstand a longer downtime(hours - days)AWS Solution High Availability or WarmStandby Pilot Light DR in AWS Backup and Recovery inAWS
  20. 20. 20 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, ... Chaos Monkey – Now Available!
  21. 21. Confidential. Property of 2nd Watch, Inc. 21 HA at each tier Can lose entiredatacenter andmaintain productionload Auto-scaling at weband API tier tosupport dynamic siteload High Data securityrequirements – HA atIDS, Log Mgmt. andauditing tiers

  23. 23. Confidential. Property of 2nd Watch, Inc. 23
  24. 24.  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 syncTip: include full domain controller to ensure allaccounts are replicated and can be used at time ofevent for definitive source.Confidential.
