Industry Trends

Hybrid Cloud Disaster Recovery and Backup Development Trends
Hybrid Cloud Disaster Recovery and Backup Development Trends

With the rapid development of the cloud computing industry and ever-increasing customer needs, the IT infrastructure at organizations of all sizes are placing more and more services into a cloud framework. This move presents enterprises with some daunting challenges in ensuring service continuity.

Enterprises are choosing cloud services because they are cheaper, able to eliminate environment bottlenecks, and able to fully gear into ever-changing developments to suit the growth strategies of the enterprises.For service systems, security and stability are always the top priority. Traditional geo-redundant DR models often comprising two sites and three data centers in a single cloud ensure rapid restoration for services during downed events at one or even multiple locations. However, these types of models cannot be used to handle service interruptions caused by system errors. Therefore, the multi-cloud backup and on-cloud DR models will become the focus in the cloud computing context to ensure zero service interruptions.

Enterprises use multi-cloud solutions for various reasons. The data requirements as well as data protection and management strategies of an enterprise determine whether multi-cloud and cross-cloud DR capabilities are required. For example, if the enterprise data management strategy emphasizes multiple backups, then the multi-cloud strategy is the correct choice. According to research from Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), 61% of the enterprises with services running in clouds use at least two clouds.

Business Challenges

  • High Costs in DR Center Builds and O&M

    To build a traditional DR center, enterprises need to build or rent equipment rooms and invest lots of manpower in maintenance and testing. Accomplishing a full DR mode incurs high CAPEX and OPEX as the arms of both or multiple centers must reach the same scale and achieve near real-time transmission.

Accomplishing a full DR mode incurs high CAPEX and OPEX as the arms of both or multiple centers must reach the same scale and achieve near real-time transmission.
  • Many Restrictions on DR Drills

    If a DR drill is performed in a traditional DR center, equipment rooms and cables need to be scheduled, and some cold standby devices need to be powered on, which causes a high fault rate. Switchovers may delay or even fail at the critical moment in spite of the drills, leaving the enterprise vulnerable with weak service recovery capabilities.

Switchovers may delay or even fail at the critical moment in spite of the drills, leaving the enterprise vulnerable with weak service recovery capabilities.
  • Complicated Data Synchronization Policies

    The synchronization policies for hosts, databases, and storage devices are complicated and restricted by the transmission distance and data volume. In addition, the data encryption/decryption mechanism complicates deployments and maintenance. As a result, some data becomes invalid, or the system cannot meet the designed RPO.

  • Architecture Difficult to Implement

    Core services require multi-center architectures to ensure service continuity, requiring large amounts of investment and extensive consideration in design as to how all the parts of the architecture will collaborate. Implementing this architecture with a traditional DR model equates to high costs and the benefits are limited.

Recommended Services

  • ECS
    Elastic Cloud Server (ECS) is a cloud server that provides scalable, on-demand computing resources for secure, flexible, and efficient applications.
  • EVS
    Elastic Volume Service (EVS) provides persistent block storage for services such as Elastic Cloud Server (ECS) and Bare Metal Server (BMS). With advanced data redundancy and cache acceleration capabilities, EVS offers high availability and durability with an extremely low latency.
  • Deploys active and standby instances in different AZs and implements real-time data hot backup. If an active instance becomes unavailable, the system automatically switches to the standby instance.

Success Stories

  • With multi-AZ deployment, intra-city active-active DR, remote DR assurance, and visualized DR GUI, Huawei helped Vmall enhance the service availability and simplify O&M. Vmall can now easily cope with seckill, hacker attacks, and high O&M costs.
  • Local IDC+ Hybrid Cloud Disaster Recovery from Huawei reduced DR costs and shortened the project construction period. With this solution, BRC can now implement cross-AZ DR and perform DR drills at any time.
