Hyperscale Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud environments automatically adapt to change with ease and speed. However, when it comes to a disruption or disaster, you can’t assume recovery will be just as smooth. While AWS recommends designing with the intention of surviving partial service outages, it’s up to you to build a resilient, fully recoverable environment.

Sungard AS Cloud Recovery for AWS incudes operating system recovery, critical business data replication, data protection storage management, and automated recovery of protected workloads, all leveraging Amazon Web Services Cloud and underpinned by a contracted SLA.


  • Decrease recovery time

    With automated orchestration, AWS cloud environments can be recovered in as little as 15 minutes. Meet your overall RTO goals with an SLA of just four hours for up to 250 instances.

  • Get ready access to business data

    Get ready access to business data

    A near-real-time recovery point objective (RPO) guards against data loss. It includes additional “point-in-time” snapshots every 10 minutes, every 1 hour and every 1 day over a 30-day rolling data retention period. 

  • Prioritize apps and data

    Prioritize apps and data

    We help you determine the criticality of specific applications and data before an event occurs, so you know which servers need to be recovered first to get back to business fast.

  • Consolidate and simplify recovery

    Consolidate and simplify recovery

    With a complete solution for recovering both physical and cloud environments, backed by our cloud and disaster recovery skills and a pay-as-you-go model, you can reduce the cost and complexity involved in a successful recovery. Compute resources are not charged until “at time of test” or disaster for further cost efficiency.

For complete recovery, you need a complete recovery solution

Recovery complexity grows when applications and data are scattered across many different cloud and on-premise IT infrastructures. If an event brings your systems down, it means spreading recovery efforts and staff across each distinct environment. Without a plan in place, it’s also unclear which apps and data are critical to recover first. 

All this puts profits and customer confidence at stake and your business on hold as you wait to resume IT operations. If your business requires SLAs around availability, you’ll need to assume 100% of the risk and be held accountable to the business, regulators and other stakeholders. That’s why you need a fully managed, SLA-backed recovery solution: Cloud Recovery-AWS from Sungard AS.
