The Solution Offered

  • As per the challenges faced by the customer, Customer wanted a solution which can:
    1. Setup efficient daily backup
    2. Endpoint management of data
    3. Perform an easy restore operation.
    4. Need to maintain RPO is 24 hours and RTO will depend on data size (approx. 900 GB per user)
    5. Backup should need scalability demands where data generated from the user and data which are backup are real time and incremental.
    6. Lifecycle management where old data should keep in archive.
  • To overcome the challenges faced by the customer we have proposed a Cloudberry Endpoint solution for all the users.
  • Cloudberry and AWS joint solution provides the customer with centralized monitoring, management of its backups, and dedicated support.
  • Cloudberry tool will secure by encrypting the data using KMS.
  • Organization can restrict the storage capacity for users.
  • Customer is also flexible to maintain the number of version of files as per need.
  • Backup plan can be schedule by user manually or automatically using scheduling features in Cloudberry.
  • Firstly, we have configured the policy as a full backup and then a daily incremental backup of data to S3.
  • Data which is older than 6 months will be transition to Glacier to minimize the cost for old data.
  • While the data is primarily stored in the Mumbai region, we used cross region replication to replicate the data in Singapore region so that data can be retrieved in case of regional failure.
  • We ran the consistency check in cloudberry tool once the backup is being done to check the integrity of the data.
  • We have successfully performed a drill operation for data restoration using Cloudberry tool to check RTO and RPO as well as integrity of the data is being restored. Data restoration can be performed immediately as Amazon S3 provides leverage features to store the data with High Availability and Durability.
  • Pentagon team has provided managed services and also enabled monitoring services like CloudWatch for checking the data backup and restore transactions, configured alerts for data size limitation in S3, assisting in data backup and restoration operations as well as setting up Disaster Recovery for high availability.

Also due to cross region replication data will be highly available in different region and can be recovered even if one region goes down.
  • Free up IT resources: The customer has minimized the use of hardware by keeping data at one location in the cloud which can be restored any time.
  • Security: The data stored in cloud is highly secure. By using encryption mechanisms like KMS to encrypt and secure data at rest as well in transit. The customer will not have to worry about data compromise.
  • Centralized Data Management: The Cloudberry Console can manage the data in centralized manner which helps the customer to manage the backup architecture and check for failures or success of backup as well as restoration.
  • Reduced Capital Expenditure: No longer need to procure additional hardware/enterprise software for centralizing/transferring of data. Also, by transition of old data in archive we reduce capital cost on old data.
