Cloud Resilience (CR): Beyond traditional backup and recovery. Automated protection for IaaS, PaaS, Serverless, and data. Swift recovery from outages, and ransomware.
Essential for modern cloud engineering and operations.
Backup, DR and continuous availability are not provided “automagically” in the public cloud. It is a shared responsibility. Cloud providers are responsible for the "resilience of" the cloud platforms. Responsibility of application resilience "in" the cloud belongs to the customers. CR solutions “application-infrastructure-centered” approach orchestrates protection of the configurations as well as data and automates recovery across different cloud services.
Business Impact of Cloud Resilience
Benefits of Cloud Resilience
Reduce Recovery Time Objectives (RTO)
CR solutions measure RTOs of entire application environments, not just data volumes recovery.
Improve Recovery Point Objectives (RPO)
With CR, RPOs are not single volume data backup times but entire distributed cloud applications backup as well as replication.
Reduce Organization Protection Risk
With CR, protect all the resources in a cloud environment, not just data of some databases and volumes.
Reduce Cloud Infrastructure Cost
Cloud Resilience rebuilds application environments, saving about 70% cost of cloud infrastructure.
Cloud Resilience vs. Other Cloud Recovery Software Solutions
CR stands out from other cloud recovery software solutions.
Most of the backup and DR products just recover application data from backup or replicated data vaults.
Traditional disaster recovery products do not discover dynamic cloud application services and map dependencies leading to configuration drift from production environments.
Traditional DR takes close to double the infrastructure similar to production. It takes time to build and maintain just for an unknown failover event. CR can quickly rebuild environments to save tremendous costs.
Traditional DR run books vs Recovery-as-Code
Traditional disaster recovery needs manual run book creation. Manual run books need constant maintenance as the production and DR environments will be frequently out of sync. Moreover, legacy DR model only recovers groups of virtual machines. All the network and environment setup are left to customers.
Since, CR solutions continuously discover cloud resources and map the dependencies, they can orchestrate a complex web of cloud IaaS, PaaS and Serverless services to have a complete recovery without having to write manual runbooks and hence avoiding all the maintenance nightmare.
