Are Availability Zones a Disaster Recovery Solution?

Richard Stinton

It’s interesting to see that Microsoft Azure are previewing availability zones in two of their data center regions.

Amazon AWS have had this capability for quite a while – but what exactly is an availability zone, and does it provide full resiliency for applications in the cloud? Is it a good disaster recovery strategy?

For both cloud vendors, the original premise was to provide better availability, and to protect against failure of the underlying platform (hypervisor, physical server, network, perhaps storage).

Make the Case to Add Disaster Recovery to Your IT Budget

Will Urban

I’ve been helping customers do disaster recovery and business continuity for a very, very long time now. Back in the day, we would take a mirrored drive out of a server and put it on a shelf in another location. Implementing SAN based replication to another site and making sure OS patches and firmware were up-to-date and uniform used to play havoc with upgrade schedules.

DRaaS Doesn't Have to Break the Bank — Reserved Storage and Burst Compute

Pete Benoit

For veterans of the IT services industry, DR has always been a popular topic of conversation with potential clients. Those that have been around long enough will certainly remember how many of those conversations progressed.

Typically, it went something like this.

Potential Client: We’ve determined that our current IT infrastructure DR plan puts our business at risk and we are interviewing service providers to assess potential solutions.

IT Services Vendor: What are your infrastructure RPO and RTO targets?

Potential Client: Our CIO wants us to maintain a RPO/RTO of 4 hours or less.

Beyond Disasters — Do More with DR

Jason Clark

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, after unprecedented amounts of flooding have finally begun to recede from the Houston area, I wanted to avoid focusing on the disastrous event itself. It would be doing those impacted by the storm a disservice to write a commentary on protecting data, after a time where protecting loved ones was significantly more important. Instead, I wanted to share other reasons why it would be beneficial to have a solid DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) plan in place.
