CDP:Hybrid Backup Pattern
Using the Cloud for Backups
Problem to Be Solved
Since the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake, there have been an increasingly large number of disaster recovery (DR) systems structured, and backup data has been stored in datacenters that are geographically separated from a firm's datacenter for the purposes of protecting data and ensuring continuity of operations in the event of a disaster. Unfortunately, building a new datacenter is expensive and time-consuming, and thus is undesirable in terms of cost effectiveness.
Explanation of the Cloud Solution/Pattern
Back up by linking on-premises and the AWS Cloud.
Transmit data using the Internet, a VPN, or dedicated lines.
- Use the Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3).
- You can construct a DR system without contracting with a new datacenter.
- Enables use of high-durability Internet storage.
- Enables a reduction in cost through stopping the system until a disaster occurs.
