CloudEndure Disaster Recovery Factory is a supplementary solution for CloudEndure Disaster Recovery that delivers broader business intelligence about the state of your disaster recovery readiness. 

For customers with deployments with tens to hundreds of servers, CloudEndure Disaster Recovery Factory provides visibility into replication health and testing across all machines within an account, along with recovery resource and cost analysis. 

It enables you to make data-based decisions about your disaster recovery and business continuity plans.

Insights into your disaster recovery readiness

  • See at-a-glance the status of all machines at the account level with the ability to drill down into projects.
  • Identify potential problems to be addressed, such as machines that may violate recovery point objectives (RPOs).
  • Determine if you have sufficient capacity to fail over in the event of an incident. 
  • Accurately estimate the cost of failing over.
  • Provide evidence of compliance to auditors.

CloudEndure Disaster Recovery Factory architecture

CloudEndure Disaster Recovery Factory is deployed in your AWS account as a single AWS CloudFormation stack. It implements Amazon CloudWatch Events to schedule the triggering of an AWS Lambda function. This Lambda function connects to your CloudEndure Disaster Recovery account using CloudEndure APIs and access to credentials, as a CloudEndure API token, which is stored in AWS Secrets Manager. The Lambda function retrieves this token and authenticates it with CloudEndure Disaster Recovery, and then makes a series of API calls to gather the data needed. It stores the gathered data in a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file in an encrypted Amazon S3 bucket within your account. Only the Lambda functions in CloudEndure Disaster Recovery Factory and Amazon QuickSight are able to access the data in this bucket. Finally, the Lambda function ingests the freshly created data by QuickSight. All elements are restricted by AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies to ensure minimum privilege and access.

CloudEndure Disaster Recovery Factory dashboard

Once the solution is deployed, you can view the data in QuickSight.  The dashboard includes: 
 
Replication health and testing  provides overall replication and testing status of all machines in an account as well as breakdowns of the health of each project within that account. Additional data identifies machines that require remediation to meet RPOs or that need to be tested. 
 
Recovery resource analysis  offers a breakdown of Amazon EC2 instances and Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes by Region and per project. This allows you to obtain accurate information about your resource capacity, make adjustments to your limits if necessary, and avoid delays in the event of an incident. From a cost perspective, you can also use this data for resource requirements when failing over to help with budgeting for outages.
