AWS Disaster Recovery Services – Ensure Business Continuity









Make Data Recovery a Breeze With Foghorn

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Disaster Recovery

Data in the cloud is the building block for organizations that wish to create customer-centric solutions.

However, data loss and downtime are nothing short of a catastrophe for any IT team. Often, a Cloud Disaster Recovery solution is designed to protect on-premise or colocation infrastructure and to help anticipate and respond effectively to potential threats. A structured and comprehensive Disaster Recovery (DR) plan can be complicated to maintain and may also increase costs.
That’s where a comprehensive Disaster Recovery (DR) solution by AWS can be your best bet. Foghorn’s AWS Disaster Recovery ensures minimal downtime and rapid recovery of your on-premises and cloud-based applications, and it supports multiple DR architectures.

Benefits of a Disaster Recovery Strategy

Data is the key to business success. And disruptions can strike in any way or form, be it human error, data breaches, ransomware attacks, or regional service outages caused by man-made or natural disasters.

Downtime impacts revenue, employee productivity, and customer interactions. That’s why having a DR strategy is a must to stay operational in the event of a failure or an attack.

Recovery Strategy

A DR strategy can help:


Ensure business continuity by minimizing the impact of a disaster


Secure sensitive data, even against the destruction of physical storage


Allow companies to maintain high-quality service without interruptions


Manage employee responsibility and tasks during an emergency

Foghorn can build a robust, cost-effective, and well-tested DR strategy with AWS Disaster Recovery.

The Two Pillars of Disaster Recovery Strategy

A DR strategy relies on two key concepts, the volume of data loss and the amount of downtime.


1. Recovery Time Objective (RTO)

Following an outage, the amount of time it takes to restore a business process and associated applications.

2. Recovery Point Objective (RPO)

A measurement of an acceptable amount of data loss that an organization can afford during a disaster.

While RTO defines a time frame on strategic options that enable an organization to resume business without data, RPO measures the amount of time that data can be permitted to be lost and doesn’t measure how much data might be lost.

Why Use RTO and RPO?

For an effective disaster recovery strategy, both RTO and RPO are essential.

Why Use RTO

RTO determines what preparation is necessary for a disaster, in terms of money, automated systems, personnel, and more. RPO determines the frequency of data backup to recover essential data in case of a disaster.

RTO and RPO enable organizations to:

Identify and determine their business imitations before any disruption strikes.


Analyze and determine how much data and time are required for a company to resume operations after a disaster.

Together, they take the guesswork out of it and you get clarity around how your organization will endure a threat. These concepts enable you to mitigate disruption and identify a solution that is ideal and cost-effective.

The Foghorn AWS Disaster Recovery Approach

As an experienced AWS Premier Partner, we understand that a one-size-fits-all business approach is not effective. We carefully craft an AWS disaster recovery planning strategy that is tailored to address your unique operational needs and ensure business continuity. Depending on your data and applications, there are four DR approaches available to you within AWS that we can deploy. They range from low cost and low complexity to more complex strategies.
The approaches that we follow for backup and disaster recovery using the AWS cloud are:
Pillars of Digital Transformation
Pillars of Digital Transformation

Backup and Recovery Approach: A cost-effective method to back up and restore data, such as by using Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service).

Pilot Light Approach: A method of running core applications and data in the cloud in standby mode and triggering additional services when needed.

Warm Standby Approach: A method that results in a near-seamless transition by running a full backup system in stand-by mode by replicating live data from the production environment.

Multi-Site Solution Approach: A backup technique for replicating data and applications between two or more active locations that are ready to serve traffic when required.

For a robust DR, these approaches can be used in combination, depending on your RPO and RTO metrics. At Foghorn, we believe a well-designed and tested disaster recovery plan should be a combination of a robust, scalable, and cost-efficient mix of strategies.
