BACKUPS REDUNDANCY ARCHIVING SECURITY DATA
The backup contains a copy of the current configurations, code, the database, data files and some additional files required to restore the production site elsewhere. Backups are about being able to restore data (limited to yesterday’s data) within one working day.
Redundancy is the ability to reproduce the production environment on a different continent, with different infrastructure so that Backup can be restored on new hardware within one working day, if anything happened to the production environment.
Keeping multiple copies of a back up is called an Archive. This enables us to restore last months version if any corrupted data makes it to the Backup. We include twelve backups in a rotating cycle. Six daily (Sunday - Friday) four weekly (Saturday) two monthly (First of each month).
Security is about restricting unwanted physical and electronic intrusion to the hardware. Aeronet leverages AWS infrastructure. More information is available here http://aws.amazon.com/security...
Data is both the records in the database and the attachments that make up the Aeronet install excluding code. The data is owned by the subscriber forever. The included Aeronet data package is one GB.
Infrastructure is the underlying servers that the application runs on. Included Aeronet Infrastructure are AWS EC2 instances with RDS databases.
