As we step into the new year, businesses face a pivotal challenge: ensuring mission-critical cloud resilience while grappling with escalating cloud costs and the rising threat of ransomware. The solution lies in redefining resilience strategy, a domain where Appranix is leading the change for distributed cloud applications and doing at the hyperscale level.
Application types and criticality of Resilience
Enterprise applications are broadly classified into four categories. Levels of resilience SLAs are based on how critical these applications are and how fast they need to become operational after an outage. Infrastructure, management tools, and operations costs increase significantly when the resilience levels move up from one stage to the next. For example, the level of cloud computing infrastructure, and operational skill, to make high availability possible for business-critical applications is different from a medium-critical application.
The growing Resilience challenge
Achieving the levels of resilience shown above, in an era where cyber threats are increasingly pervasive, traditional resilience models exercised on the cloud platforms are proving both costly and ineffective. When mission-critical and business-critical systems are attacked, downtimes are much beyond the accepted norms, assuming the systems can be brought back on time without any corruption. However, the real conundrum lies in protecting these tiers against cyber threats, along with protecting against various infrastructure downtimes and the level of automation required.
The Inadequacy of Traditional Models
Traditional High Availability (HA) architectures, while robust, fail to shield against ransomware, as these attacks replicate vulnerabilities across sites. Conventional backup and recovery solutions are time-intensive and often incomplete. This fragmented approach leads to extended recovery times, hindering business continuity.
Appranix: Reshaping Cloud Resilience
Appranix addresses this conundrum head-on. It offers a groundbreaking solution that provides the resilience of a warm standby architecture at costs lower than traditional pilot light models. This innovative approach ensures rapid recovery from cyber attacks, preserving business operations with minimal expense.
Appranix's unique proposition
Cost-Effective Resilience: Appranix delivers business-critical resilience at administrative systems resilience cost, redefining the cost-benefit analysis of cloud resilience.
Cyber Resilience: Unlike HA architectures, Appranix is designed to rebuild cloud infrastructure swiftly post-cyber attacks, ensuring minimal downtime and data loss.
Scalable and Flexible: Catering to various application tiers, Appranix's model scales as per business needs, providing robust protection across the board.
ROI with Appranix
Consider a typical scenario: Traditional resilience approaches incur high costs for mission-critical applications and moderate costs for business-critical functions. Appranix, however, standardizes resilience across tiers at a substantially lower cost, providing a more effective and economical solution.
Appranix Cloud Resilience value
In this table, we compare traditional resilience costs for different application tiers with those offered by Appranix. Appranix stands out in providing higher cyber resilience at a moderate cost, even for mission-critical applications, which traditionally incur higher costs. This model emphasizes Appranix's efficiency in recovery time and its superior capability in cyber resilience, aligning perfectly with the theme of achieving high-grade resilience at manageable costs.
