Reduce Recovery Complexity

Lessen risks, ensure recoverability.
Pursuing an integrated production and recovery strategy for your AWS workloads requires the right skills and resources, especially as your environments mature.

Manage complexity.
You need to ensure business agility, resiliency and data protection as you modernize and transform your infrastructure. With Cloud Recovery – AWS, Sungard AS designs, builds, tests, maintains and monitors your recovery solution, freeing you to focus on your core business objectives.

SLA-backed services add to your recovery capabilities. You can mitigate the risk of extended downtime for virtual or physical x86 workloads—located on premises or in a third-party data center—to recover AWS services or workloads hosted in one AWS region that provides recovery into another AWS region.

Automate and Speed Recovery Processes

Sungard AS Cloud Recovery – AWS replicates production data on Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), so you can recover and access the most current data if disruption occurs. During testing or a disaster, instances can be spun up using automated orchestration, minimizing the risk of downtime and data loss.

Sungard AS provides a contracted Recovery Time Objective (RTO) SLA of four hours (up to 250 workloads), based upon our proven recovery methodology and ability to bring workloads back online in an orderly fashion.

The service provides Continuous Data Protection (CDP), with snapshots taken every 10 minutes, hourly and daily and a 30-day retention period. Additionally, recovery time is as low as 15 minutes for AWS region-to-region recovery, and as low as 35 minutes for on-premise-to-AWS recovery for VMware, Hyper-V and physical x86 systems.
