- AWS cloud to On premises
- DR setup from On premises to AWS cloud and vice-versa.
We help our clients in achieving the encryption on transit, at rest and make sure that the data is securely stored and transited.
RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and RPO (Recovery Point Objective) goals – depending upon our customer’s requirements to achieve the RTO and RPO in AWS Storage. As a customer, you need to consider your business requirements, application criticality, and cost considerations. RTO defines the maximum acceptable downtime for your application or service, while RPO defines the acceptable data loss in case of a disaster.
Define the right RTO and RPO Strategy:
- Understand your business requirements: Determine the criticality of your application or service. Identify the impact of downtime on your business operations, customer experience, revenue, and reputation. Consider any regulatory or compliance requirements that may affect your RTO and RPO.
- Assess your data: Determine the criticality of your data and how frequently it changes. Some data may require near real-time replication, while for other data, periodic backups may be sufficient. Identify the data sets that require the highest level of protection and prioritize them accordingly.
- Explore AWS storage options: AWS offers various storage services that can help you meet your RTO and RPO requirements. Some of the relevant services include Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service), Amazon EBS (Elastic Block Store), Amazon Glacier, and AWS Backup. Each service has different characteristics in terms of durability, availability, and recovery options.
- Replication and backup strategies: Depending on your requirements, you can choose different replication and backup strategies. For lower RTO and RPO, you may consider using multi-region replication or Cross-Region Replication (CRR) for services like Amazon S3 or Amazon EBS. This ensures that your data is available in multiple geographically separate locations, reducing the risk of data loss.
- Utilize AWS backup services: AWS Backup provides a centralized backup management solution for various AWS services, including EBS volumes, RDS databases, DynamoDB tables, and more. It simplifies the backup process and allows you to define backup schedules, retention policies, and recovery workflows.
- Test your recovery procedures: Regularly test your recovery procedures to ensure they meet your RTO and RPO goals. Conduct simulated disaster recovery exercises to validate the effectiveness of your backup and restore processes. Identify any potential bottlenecks or issues and make necessary adjustments to improve your recovery capabilities.
- Cost considerations: Achieving lower RTO and RPO typically involves higher costs due to the need for additional resources and redundant infrastructure. Evaluate the cost implications of your chosen storage options and align them with your business requirements and budget constraints.

We can work with you to establish recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs) to ensure you can recover from a disaster as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Test and Update Your Plan:
We not only consultant but help you test and update your disaster recovery plan on a regular basis to ensure it remains effective and up-to-date. We conduct regular disaster recovery drills and simulations to identify potential issues and make necessary adjustments.
Define the right storage service:
Team Operisoft keeps below in mind while defining the right storage services for the customers:
Choose a provider that integrates with your existing systems and applications. This includes support for popular APIs and protocols, as well as the ability to easily move data between your on-premise and cloud environments.
Security should be a top priority when choosing a cloud storage service. Look for a provider that offers encryption, strong access controls, and regular security updates.
Look for a provider with a proven track record of high availability and uptime. You should also consider their disaster recovery and business continuity plans.
Choose a provider that can accommodate your changing storage needs over time. This includes the ability to easily increase or decrease storage capacity, as well as the ability to add new users as your organization grows.
Consider the total cost of ownership, including storage fees, transfer fees, and any other costs associated with using the service. Look for a provider that offers transparent pricing and the ability to easily calculate your costs.
