As your customers’ work environments move to the cloud and become more virtualized, it’s important to make sure your backup and disaster recovery strategy is keeping up.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud computing resources, networking facilities, and multi-user applications reduce the amount of financial and business resources spent maintaining your business IT infrastructure. Off-site cloud storage further protects your data against disaster. This whitepaper reviews best practices for backup and disaster recovery on the AWS Cloud.

Backup & disaster recovery (BDR) includes cloud backup, hybrid storage, recovery software, local storage, managed services, and more.
A backup is a copy or archive of computer data that can be used to restore the original data if lost. Backups are also used to restore data from an earlier time. They are a simple form of disaster recovery and should be a part of a disaster recovery plan however; a disaster recovery plan should never be just backups alone. Backups can often require significant amounts of data storage space and can be complicated to maintain and organize. Many different methods have been developed to optimize backup procedures, including ways to deal with open files, live data, encryption, compression, and de-duplication. Backup solutions should also include dry runs in order to verify the reliability of the data in the backup.
Disaster recovery is a set of rules, policies, processes, and procedures that organizations set up and follow in order to maintain a running technical infrastructure in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. A subset of business continuity, disaster recovery deals specifically with the IT or technological systems of a business.
Many companies choose managed backup & disaster recovery services, where a vendor provides automatic backups or backup services via on-premise hardware and/or cloud storage along with the necessary software and support.
Common strategies for data protection include backups made to tape and sent off-site, backups made to disk on-site and copied or made directly to disks off-site, data replication to off-site locations, hybrid cloud solutions that replicate data to on-site appliances and off-site data centers, and high availability systems which replicate data and systems off-site and enable continuous access even after a disaster.
