Enable Rapid Recovery of Critical IT Systems

Achieve a world-class disaster recovery solution with AWS

Why Disaster Recovery on AWS?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) gives you rapid access to highly secure and reliable infrastructure along with the flexibility to quickly change and enhance resources during disaster recovery (DR) events, which can result in significant cost savings. It also enables your company to scale up its infrastructure on an as-needed, pay-as-you-go basis.

Benefits of using DaaS on AWS

Reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

Leveraging AWS for DR allows you to leverage on-demand DR infrastructure rather than paying for dedicated assets in an on-premises environment, replacing capital expenditures (CapEx) with operational expenses (OpEx).

Understand Dependencies

AWS Application Discovery Service collects information on inbound and outbound network activity, such as server hostnames, IP addresses, media access control (MAC) addresses, and resource allocation and utilization details of key resources, providing insight into dependencies across servers.

Easy Testability

Quickly spin up machines for your periodic

DR drills without disrupting your source environment.  

Accelerated Restoration

AWS helps facilitate rapid storing and retrieval of files enabling a variety of recovery time objectives (RTOs). Fast retrieval allows organizations to avoid fines for missing compliance deadlines.

Plans that Grow with You

AWS allows you to test your target DR systems in whichever manner best meets your needs. Updating DR plans, managing the minimal infrastructure needed to keep your failover site prepared, and testing target DR systems are all a button away. Never again worry about procedural binders having been updated.

Flexibility Between Infrastructures

Protect physical, virtual, or cloud-based source machines by replicating them into a DR site in any AWS Region.  

Disaster Recovery with FORTE CLOUD on AWS

FORTE CLOUD can help you leverage the rapid disaster recovery of critical IT systems without incurring the infrastructure expense of a second physical site. 
AWS supports many popular DR architectures, including Pilot Light, Warm Standby, and Multi-Site environments.

Cloud Endure Disaster Recovery ( Minimize downtime and data loss with fast, reliable recovery for about $20 / server/month )

Cloud Endure is an AWS service that makes it quick and easy to shift your disaster recovery strategy to the AWS cloud from existing physical or virtual data centers, private clouds, or other public clouds without any downtime or performance impact.

Disaster Recovery services used on AWS


Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2)

Amazon EC2 delivers flexible compute capacity and allows you to rapidly spin up pre-configured virtual machines that are tailored to your environment, so you can execute a rapid failover in case of a disaster

Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS)

Point-in-time snapshots of data volumes can be taken and stored in Amazon S3 for long-term durability. Amazon EBS volumes provide off-instance storage that can be replicated across multiple servers to prevent any loss of data.


Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)

A highly durable storage target for backup data, serving as an alternative to tape, that redundantly stores data across multiple devices, enabling you to perform rapid restores.

Amazon Glacier

Extremely low-cost storage for data archiving and backup. Objects are optimized for infrequent access, helping achieve fast retrieval times in case of a disaster, with the same durability as Amazon S3.

When using AWS as a target DR infrastructure, no hardware is needed, and you only pay for your cloud DR site when required, such as during a disaster or DR drill. This means no CapEx investment or unnecessary duplicate provisioning of resources.
