Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is a metric that measures the amount of time it takes for a business process to be restored to its normal service level after a disruption. It is the target time for the recovery of the system, service or application. It is a performance measure of how quickly an organization can restore normal operations. It is important for organizations to establish RTOs for their critical systems and processes, as it helps to ensure that the organization can continue to function in the event of a disruption. RTOs help organizations to identify the resources and strategies needed to achieve their recovery goals and to prioritize their disaster recovery efforts.
Recovery Point Objective (RPO) is a metric that measures the maximum amount of data loss that an organization is willing to accept before a disaster occurs. It is a measure of how much data an organization can tolerate losing before it causes a significant impact to the business. It is typically expressed in time, such as hours, days, or weeks, and represents the point in time to which data must be recovered. RPO is important for organizations because it helps to determine the frequency of backups, replication intervals and the data retention period. It is also helps to determine the type and amount of resources that are needed to support the data recovery process.
Disaster recovery (DR) is the process of restoring critical systems and data in the event of a disaster. AWS offers a variety of services and features to help organizations implement disaster recovery.
Backup and restore is an important aspect of disaster recovery, as it ensures that critical data can be recovered in the event of a disaster. AWS S3 is a highly durable and scalable object storage service that can be used to store backup data. S3 provides several features that can be used to store, manage, and recover data quickly and reliably.
A Pilot Light disaster recovery strategy is a method of maintaining a minimal version of an application or system running in a secondary location, while the primary system is running in the primary location. The idea behind this strategy is to have a quick recovery time in case of a disaster, by having the core pieces of the system already running and continually kept up to date.
A Warm Standby disaster recovery solution is a method of maintaining a scaled-down version of a fully functional environment always running in the cloud. The idea behind this strategy is to have a quick recovery time in case of a disaster by having a replica of the production environment ready to go, with minimal additional setup and configuration required.
A Multi-Site disaster recovery solution is a method of running your infrastructure on multiple sites in an active-active configuration. The idea behind this strategy is to have a highly available and resilient infrastructure by running multiple copies of the system in different locations. This allows the system to continue running even if one of the sites experiences a failure or disruption.

AWS offers multiple availability zones (AZs) within a region, and multiple regions globally. Using multiple regions for disaster recovery (DR) solutions provides increased availability and resilience for your production environment.
Services AWS that can be used to support disaster recovery and backup/restore operations.
- Amazon S3 is an object storage service that can be used as a destination for backup data that might be needed quickly to perform a restore.
- Import/Export service allows for transferring very large data sets by shipping storage devices directly to AWS.
- Amazon Glacier is a long-term data archiving service where retrieval times of several hours are adequate.
- AWS Server Migration Service (SMS) for performing agentless server migrations from on-premises to AWS.
- AWS Database Migration Service (DMS) and Schema Conversion Tool for moving databases from on-premises to AWS and automatically converting SQL schema from one engine to another.
