Disaster Recovery Planning Case Study:


Ultivue is a biomarker detection and analysis technology company. The company’s on-premises IT infrastructure was exceeding capacity. Ultivue needed better system redundancy to support automatic failover in the event of a data center disaster. Moving Ultivue’s IT infrastructure to an AWS, Mission created two server environments—one for client analysis projects and one for internal research—so access to the data can be controlled separately based on user roles and authorization.

Develop the Appropriate AWS Disaster Recovery Strategy

An experienced AWS Premier Consulting Partner who understands your business requirements can develop an AWS disaster recovery planning strategy specifically tailored to address your operational needs. Depending on the criticality of data and applications, one or more of these methods may be employed.

Additionally, Mission can provide guidance regarding backup methods (snapshots, AMIs, etc.), frequency, retention periods, locations (AWS availability zones), and pricing to help you develop the most cost-effective disaster recovery strategy.

Backup and Restore

A simple, low-cost approach backs up data and applications from anywhere to the AWS cloud for restoration during disaster recovery. Amazon S3 offers low-cost, infrequent access, backup storage.

Pilot Light

Replicates a limited set of core services, always running simultaneously and syncing mutable data, thereby allowing the AWS cloud environment to seamlessly take over in the event of a disaster.

Warm Standby

A scaled-down version of a fully functional environment is always running in the cloud. Decreases the recovery time for business-critical systems because some services are always running.

Runs on AWS and your existing on-site infrastructure in an active-active configuration. Your data replication method is determined by the recovery point that you choose—RTO or RPO.

MicroSearch Corporation

MicroSearch Corporation specializes in providing custom video and document search engine services. Mission designed a new cloud environment on the AWS platform, migrated data and applications from MicroSearch’s onsite data centers, and created an AWS disaster recovery plan providing failover to a secondary AWS data center in the event of a disaster at the primary data center.

Evaluate Your Infrastructure

Mission conducts an in-depth review of your current infrastructure, identifying critical data, applications, and resources. Based on business goals, we’ll help determine your Recovery Time Objectives (maximum allowable downtime before operations are restored) or Recovery Point Objectives (maximum allowable window for transaction loss during the disaster recovery process). From these objectives, we begin to develop the best strategy for you.

Implement and Test

Mission’s team of AWS certified engineers implement your AWS disaster recovery plan using the appropriate AWS services and tools. AWS Backup automates data backup across AWS services such as EC2 resources, as well as on-premises data. Cross-region replication automatically copies objects across S3 buckets in different AWS Regions and is particularly useful is supporting geographic compliance requirements. CloudEndure replicates source machines into an AWS staging without causing downtime or impacting performance. CloudWatch monitors server failures, connectivity loss, and application problems and issues alerts to remediate the failure. CloudFormation enables automated provisioning of infrastructure services in the event of failure. EC2 Auto Scaling ensures the number of restored instances matches demand, based on the metrics provided by CloudWatch.

AWS allows you to create duplicate production environments and test your AWS disaster recovery plan in a variety of scenarios. Mission works with you to verify the proper configuration of data backups, retention, and security and to thoroughly test the disaster recovery process to ensure recovery. Mission’s goal is to use automation to monitor performance and restore your AWS environment as quickly as possible in the event of failure.
