Dinesh IT Systems, part of Kerala Dinesh Beedi Workers' Central Co-op Society, faced challenges in setting up a disaster recovery solution for their customer applications. Skylark, leveraging AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery, provided a tailor-made solution that was cost-effective and met stringent recovery time objectives.
Skylark designed a solution utilizing AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery, focusing on cost-effectiveness and automation. The approach involved replicating data to a low-size staging Linux VM, only spinning up the DR instance during disasters, significantly reducing overall costs. Skylark also managed cloud infrastructure, replication, and DR drills.
Key components included an IPSEC VPN between Dinesh IT’s data center and AWS VPC, and configuring AWS cloud infrastructure with all necessary security. The solution allowed Dinesh IT Systems to conduct DR failover simulation tests without impacting daily operations.
Deployed an efficient, cost-effective Disaster Recovery solution.
Completed DR setup and live testing within a week, meeting compliance requirements.
Achieved RPO of less than 10 minutes and RTO of 45 minutes.
Saved approximately 60% of costs compared to on-premises DR.
