NEW WHITEPAPER: Resiliency imperatives for CIOs using AWS GovCloud (US)

It’s no secret that cloud-based technologies support mission and business outcomes. What’s often a secret is that public sector CIOs with sensitive information have unique considerations when providing technology-based capabilities that meet rapidly evolving mission needs, are delivered on-time and on-budget, and adhere to regulatory compliance requirements. This is why in 2011 AWS launched AWS GovCloud (US), a secure, isolated, sovereign, elastic, scalable, compliant, and resilient isolated hyper-scale cloud. AWS GovCloud (US) allows CIOs to compliantly innovate with agility while delivering business outcomes and increasing mission effectiveness from their cloud technology investments. Since 2011, AWS GovCloud (US) has earned CIO trust to become the low-risk cloud of choice to host sensitive and highly-regulated workloads.

Over the past decade-plus, CIO feedback has shown an increased focus on minimizing technology interruptions that could degrade mission effectiveness or diminish business outcomes. Amazon CEO Andy Jassy often says, “there is no compression algorithm for experience.” Since AWS was founded in 2006, we have consistently invested in the resiliency of our global infrastructure and services. Knowing that resiliency is important to our AWS GovCloud (US) CIOs, AWS applied 13 years of experience hosting highly-regulated, mission-critical workloads to create a resiliency insights whitepaper to help CIOs better-understand and use the resiliency benefits of AWS GovCloud (US) cloud technologies. This whitepaper contains lessons learned and best practices, and offers CIOs insights into establishing, achieving, and maintaining both enterprise and workload-specific resiliency goals. Doing so can help achieve business outcomes and increase mission effectiveness using AWS GovCloud (US) hyper-scale cloud technology.
