The Amazon Web Services (AWS) shared responsibility model outlines the differentiation of Security ‘of’ the cloud with AWS and Security ‘in’ the Cloud with the customer. Workloads that are migrated or created in AWS are not implicitly protected with Disaster Recovery (DR) capabilities. 

“Systems, sites, and networks can fail no matter where they are located or who is managing them. Mission-critical service availability and protection of corporate data are essential no matter where services reside.” 

“Cloud services are not based on traditional enterprise architectures and management. IT departments no longer have end-to-end control of the environment.”

    – Gartner report on DR implementation

Enterprises need to be prepared for failures to their cloud infrastructure due to user errors, malicious & insider threat, operational mishaps or site outages.

CloudRanger is delighted to announce that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Storage Competency status. This designation recognizes that CloudRanger provides proven technology to help customers successfully achieve their storage goals on AWS.

We’ll also explain how CloudRanger can help save time and money by simplifying your company’s cross-regional backup and disaster recovery process.
