Business continuity depends on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data across an organization – from operations to sales to fulfillment. Even a brief lapse in workload continuity can mean thousands of lost sales opportunities, disruption to production, and compromised customer trust.
The causes of those lapses can range from natural disasters to mechanical failure or human error. You need a proactive cloud disaster recovery strategy that will help you stay up and running in the event that your physical infrastructure is unavailable for any length of time.
Businesses of all sizes are using AWS to enable faster disaster recovery of their critical IT systems without incurring the infrastructure expense of a second physical site. AWS supports many disaster recovery architectures, from those built for smaller workloads to enterprise solutions that enable rapid failover at scale. AWS provides a set of cloud-based disaster recovery services that enable fast recovery of your IT infrastructure and data.
CloudEndure Disaster Recovery is an AWS service that makes it quick and easy to shift your disaster recovery strategy to the AWS cloud from existing physical or virtual data centers, private clouds, or other public clouds. If you have already migrated to AWS, you can further protect your mission-critical workloads with cross-region disaster recovery.
Benefits of using AWS and CloudEndure for Disaster Recovery
Whereas traditional disaster recovery solutions require duplicate compute and storage infrastructure in the target site, CloudEndure and AWS keep your data in sync using lightweight compute and storage. This way you only pay for your fully provisioned recovery environment in an actual disaster, which significantly reduces your TCO.
CloudEndure operates in the background, without requiring reboot or impacting your system in any noticeable way. Our Continuous Data Protection engine works in memory, does not use snapshots, and does not write any data to disk, which means near-zero impact on performance.
Any application from any source
CloudEndure supports physical, virtual, and cloud-based source infrastructure, and all applications running on supported operating systems, including databases and other write-intensive workloads. You can use the same automated process to replicate and recover workloads in AWS regardless of OS type/version, application, or database.
Minimal RTO and RPO
Unlike snapshot-based solutions that update target locations at distinct, infrequent intervals, CloudEndure uses Continuous Data Protection, enabling sub-second Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs). Highly automated machine conversion and orchestration enable Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) of minutes.
