AWS disaster recovery - Ascertain Technologies

Building a Resilient DR setup on AWS with Ascertain

In today’s digital landscape, data is the lifeblood of your business. A single cyberattack, natural disaster, or even a simple human error can wreak havoc on your operations, leading to costly downtime and reputational damage. Imagine facing a critical outage and not being able to recover your data quickly – a nightmare scenario for any business leader. 

This is where a bulletproof backup and disaster recovery (DR) strategy comes in. It’s your insurance policy against the unexpected, ensuring business continuity and minimizing disruptions when disaster strikes. Ascertain, a premier AWS Partner, empowers you to achieve just that. We go beyond basic backups, crafting a comprehensive DR plan built on the rock-solid foundation of AWS to keep your business running smoothly, no matter the storm.

Be Ready for Anything: Building Business Resilience on AWS

The cornerstone of effective Disaster Recovery (DR) lies in the careful design of a tailored Backup & Recovery strategy and architecture that aligns seamlessly with the criticality and operational dynamics of your business. Selecting the right cloud-native tools for backup, data synchronization, and recovery is paramount in ensuring a solution that is not only cost-effective but also optimized for time efficiency. It is in this critical juncture that the expertise of Ascertain shines, distinguishing us from other IT service providers. With a proven track record of crafting bespoke DR solutions, we leverage our comprehensive understanding of industry best practices and cutting-edge technologies to safeguard your business continuity in the face of unforeseen disruptions.

Here's what sets Ascertain apart:

  • Fort Knox Security: We leverage the unparalleled security of AWS. Industry-leading encryption, access controls, and multi-region replication ensure your data remains secure from prying eyes and unforeseen events. Think of it as a digital Fort Knox for your valuable information. 

  • Effortless Automation: Eliminate human error from the equation with automated backups. This frees up your IT team to focus on strategic initiatives while ensuring your data is consistently protected. 

  • Scalability that Grows with You: As your business expands, so too should your DR solution. The beauty of AWS is its inherent scalability. We design a plan that seamlessly adapts to accommodate growing data volumes and evolving workloads, ensuring your business is always covered. 

  • Cost-Effectiveness You Can Trust: Avoid the high costs of traditional DR infrastructure. AWS offers a pay-as-you-go model, so you only pay for the resources you use. This translates to significant cost savings compared to on-premise solutions. 

  • Seamless Integration & Flexibility: Our solutions integrate seamlessly with your existing IT ecosystem and AWS services you’re already using. We tailor the DR strategy to your unique needs, ensuring a perfect fit that complements your existing infrastructure. 

Key Features: Powering Your Uninterrupted Business Operations

We understand that every second counts when disaster strikes. That’s why our DR solutions on AWS are designed with key features to minimize downtime and ensure a swift recovery: 

  • Automated Backups: Regular, automated backups ensure your data is always protected, eliminating the risk of manual errors. 

  • Instant Recovery: Restore individual files, applications, or entire systems within seconds, minimizing downtime and getting your business back on track quickly. 

  • Geo-Redundancy: Replicate your data across geographically dispersed locations. This ensures maximum uptime even in the face of regional outages. An unexpected event in one location won’t cripple your entire operation. 

  • Continuous Monitoring & Reporting: Gain real-time insights into the health of your DR strategy with comprehensive monitoring and reporting tools. This allows you to proactively identify and address any potential issues before they escalate. 

Not All DR Strategies Are Created Equal: Choosing the Right Fit for Your Business on AWS

AWS Disaster recovery (DR) is no longer a luxury – it’s a business necessity. At Ascertain, we understand that every business has unique needs and risk tolerances. That’s why we offer a comprehensive suite of DR solutions on AWS that cater to a variety of budgets and recovery time objectives (RTOs). 

Here’s a breakdown of the four main DR strategies on AWS, to help you choose the right fit for your business: 

  1. Backup and Restore: This is the most cost-effective option, ideal for low-risk applications where some downtime is acceptable.

  2. Pilot Light: Offers a balance between cost and recovery time. Core services are kept running in standby mode, minimizing downtime for critical operations. 

  3. Warm Standby: Provides faster recovery times than backup and restore by keeping a full replica of your production environment running in standby mode.

  4. Multi-Site Active/Active: Offers the fastest recovery times and highest level of availability, with a full production system running in a secondary location, ready to take over seamlessly in case of disaster.
