Data loss is a common problem. Disasters come in many forms, such as power interruption, corrupted database, hardware failures, software glitches, or network outages. In a cost-cutting environment you will need a solid plan that is cost-efficient, yet ensures that backups are performed regularly and recovery from any disaster quickly. 

To implement this successfully, many companies have outsourced the data backup and recovery to the cloud, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) storage solutions. AWS provides secure, scalable and robust storage in a more cost-efficient and scalable data backup and recovery.

      How to back up your data to cloud computing Amazon Web Services (AWS) 

Amazon Web Services simplifies the data backup and recovery by automating the entire process. The backup and recovery process has now been reduced to a point-and-click web-based interface where the software performs labour intensive and complex tasks. All you need to do is simply sign up for an AWS account and complete the setup process. You can also create unique user credentials to define who has access to which resources for daily interaction with AWS.

     Process of backing up your standard server

     Build Amazon Machine Image (AMI):

This acts as a template containing the operating system and web server applications such as Apache, IIS, and other software. Choose an AMI provider by using the AWS marketplace, the AWS community, or create your own AMI provider.

Launch Instance:-Click “Launch Instance” to create a new instance of your web server. You can also create as many or a few virtual servers you need from the AMI provider.

Region and Availability Zones: -Place and replicate resources – instances and data – across multiple “regions,” and within each region, specific isolated locations or “availability zones. Networking and Security: Create the key pair – public to encrypt data and private key to decrypt data to log into an instance Create a security group (virtual firewall) and rules to control network access to one or more instances: Amazon EC2 provides the instances with IP addresses and DNS hostnames Why shPlace and replicate resources – instances and data – across multiple “regions,” and within each region, specific isolated locations or “availability zones.
