Leveraging AWS Volume Gateway for Disaster Recovery
A summary of AWS Storage Gateway offerings, Volume Gateway use cases, and disaster recovery implementation
Amazon Web Services (AWS) introduced the Storage Gateway software appliance in 2012 and has expanded that offering as recently as 2016. Additionally, in 2017, the Storage Gateway was added to the AWS list of Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant services that are covered under its HIPAA Business Associate Addendum (BAA).
The Storage Gateway is a hybrid cloud solution that allows on-premises systems to seamlessly back up volumes, files, or tape backups into AWS’s extremely durable Simple Storage Service (S3).
The Volume Gateway is ideally suited for several use cases that large organizations grapple with on a daily basis. This white paper focuses on the Volume Gateway, its uses, and where it fits architecturally in the enterprise. The report concludes with a disaster recovery simulation.
