Learn how to leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) to build a reliable DR environment. Explore AWS-specific DR concepts, and get hands-on experience with using AWS to build a reliable DR environment.
- [Josh] Hi, my name is Josh von Schaumburg. Welcome to my course on building a disaster recovery environment in Amazon Web Services. AWS and other public cloud providers have drastically reduced the cost and complexity of building disaster recovery environments. In this course, you'll learn how to leverage AWS's tools and services to quickly build out disaster recovery sites ranging from cold to active/active architectures. I'll explain why you need disaster recovery and do a deep dive on how to configure all of the core AWS services that are used for disaster recovery, such as Amazon Machine Images, S3 cross-region replication, Route 53 DNS service among other key AWS tools.
I'll explain how these services are used at a high level and also show live demos so you can get hand-on experience with AWS. Let's get started.
- DR in the public cloud
- Recovery time objective (RTO)
- Recovery point objective (RPO)
- AWS platform services that support DR
- Comparing the four DR architectures
- Differences between high availability and DR
- Cold DR procedure
- Pilot light DR procedure
- Warm standby procedure
- Multisite DR failover
