This Company is a leading dental clinic company based in Indonesia, dedicated to providing high-quality dental solutions to its customers. With a strong focus on customer satisfaction and innovative dental technology, This Customer has established itself as a trusted brand in the industry. As a rapidly growing company, they recognized the importance of implementing a robust disaster recovery strategy to safeguard their critical systems, data, and operations from potential disruptions and ensure uninterrupted service to their customers.
This Company faced a critical challenge in implementing a resilient disaster recovery strategy. Their objective was to establish a comprehensive system with a Recovery Time Objective (RTO) of 8 hours and a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of 24 hours. However, this customer encountered several hurdles in ensuring the adaptability of their disaster recovery solution while maintaining efficient and cost-effective backup and recovery processes.
The primary challenge for this customer was to design and implement a disaster recovery strategy capable of achieving an RTO of 8 hours. The RTO represented the maximum acceptable downtime for critical systems and data after a disaster. this customer acknowledged the significant financial losses and reputational damage that extended interruptions could cause. In addition, they aimed to achieve an RPO of 24 hours, signifying the desired recovery point relative to the time of failure. This objective aimed to minimize data loss and enable them to restore their systems and data to a point relatively close to the failure event.
Furthermore, this customer faced the task of ensuring the adaptability of their disaster recovery solution to accommodate future growth. As a rapidly expanding company, they needed a scalable solution capable of handling increased data volumes and evolving business needs. They sought to avoid potential bottlenecks or limitations in their backup and recovery processes that could hinder their ability to quickly restore critical data and resume operations. Additionally, this customer recognized the importance of maintaining efficient and cost-effective backup and recovery processes to optimize their solution. They aimed to eliminate human errors, reduce downtime during a disaster, and ensure compliance with their defined RTO and RPO targets.
Therefore, this customer required a comprehensive disaster recovery strategy that could address these challenges by providing a flexible, adaptable, and efficient solution with an RTO of 8 hours and an RPO of 24 hours. They acknowledged the need for regular testing of backup and recovery processes to validate their effectiveness, along with simulated disaster scenarios to ensure the recovery procedures met the required objectives. Continuous monitoring was also crucial to identify and address potential issues or bottlenecks, allowing for ongoing optimization and alignment with their evolving business needs.
The proposed solution involved leveraging AWS Backup to achieve a disaster recovery strategy with a Recovery Time Objective (RTO) of 8 hours and a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of 24 hours. The architecture included several key elements to ensure a resilient and efficient solution.
The design architecture above is made and offered to the customer, based on the best practice solution for Web Application on AWS.
By leveraging AWS Backup and automation, this customer achieved cost savings by reducing manual intervention and minimizing downtime during a disaster. They learned the importance of optimizing costs while maintaining an efficient disaster recovery strategy.
