If you run some or all of your applications in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, you might worry about the impact of an unexpected outage on your business. We know that while AWS has all the necessary infrastructure, orchestration and scalability to support a recovery solution, without help navigating the complexities of a recovery environment in the AWS cloud it can be a daunting prospect. Equally, many customers who recover external environments into the AWS cloud would also find this a challenge.

Recognising this, Sungard Availability Services has developed a managed cloud recovery service specifically for AWS. This lives on AWS infrastructure so there is no hardware to buy or lease, no lower limit on the amount of data under protection and you pay only for recovery computing resources used at time of test or disaster.

Managed Cloud Recovery for AWS supports data replication of virtual machines along with support for replication of your Oracle and MSSQL databases. The flexibility of the AWS platform allows additional servers to be spun up in minutes as required, getting you back to ‘business as usual’ more quickly.

In fact, with our AWS-certified architecture and skilled AWS specialists we offer an SLA-backed guarantee to get your business back online in the AWS cloud in as little as two hours of an interruption.

We offer customers a choice of two ways to connect – either over public networks or via a dedicated communications link depending on security and bandwidth requirements. For those customers who require it, we can support their private connections in AWS to give greater security and more consistent performance.

In our experience, many customers also need expert help with their disaster recovery planning so making our AWS offering even better value, we offer business continuity consultancy too.
We believe the combination of AWS - one of the leading cloud computing platforms in the world – coupled with Sungard Availability Services’ recovery expertise will prove an attractive proposition.

Cloud Based Recovery for AWS is just one of our many cloud-based recovery services that enable us to make good our promise that whatever your infrastructure - physical, virtual or hybrid - we can work with it.
