Resiliency refers to the ability of a workload to withstand and recover from various types of failures or disruptions. It involves designing and implementing measures to ensure that the system remains available, reliable, and functional even in the face of unexpected events.
Resiliency is crucial because workload and services are vulnerable to a range of issues, such as hardware failures, network outages, power disruptions, natural disasters, and cyber attacks. These events can potentially cause downtime, data loss, or service interruptions, leading to financial losses and negative impacts on businesses and users.
To achieve resiliency, there are several key practices and technologies are commonly employed:
By incorporating these practices and technologies, organizations can enhance the resiliency of their workload environment, enabling them to deliver consistent, reliable services even in the face of various challenges and failures.
Resilience on AWS @ ICS Compute 2023
In the AWS ecosystem, there are several services and tools that can be leveraged to enhance resilience. Two examples are Route 53 and RDS Cross-Region.
The AWS Well-Architected Framework defines resilience as having “the capability to recover when stressed by load (more requests for service), attacks (either accidental through a bug, or deliberate through intention), and failure of any component in the workload’s components.”
A resilient workload not only recovers, but recovers in an amount of time that is desired. This is often called a recovery time objective (RTO). Within a workload, there is often a desire to not degrade, but to be capable of servicing the workload's requests during the recovery of a component. The study and practice of this implementation is known as Recovery Oriented Computing.
The other factors impacting workload reliability are:
In summary, to meet the business resilience requirements, there are several factors that need to be considered when designing the workload environment : design complexity, cost to implement, operational effort, security complexity, environmental impact. There will always be trade-offs that need to be considered also when we design the workload.
