Disaster Recovery Plan
For cases when imminent storms, or any sort of
natural disaster is expected to occur, we
temporarily provision redundancy for the instances
located in the region's location.
Case study: Superstorm sandy
- We mass provisioned servers in Amazon US-West Oregon.
- We setup slaves for each server hosted in US-East Virginia.
- We let the slaves run until the storm had subsided, 3 days
For these cases, the user can opt to do one of two things:
- They can opt to use the redundant slave, promote that
to master, and make their current instance a slave.
- They can wait it out, and act if something does happen.
