Disaster Recovery Plan

Backup Info

Code and assets are stored on EBS volumes and are backed up twice daily by creating EBS snapshots. Additionally, code and assets are backed up before every update and before site termination. Backups are initially stored on the EBS volume and then moved to the S3.

Data is stored in the RDS databases with daily backups. It can also be recovered on a point-in-time basis. Like code&assets, data is backed up before each update and upon site termination.

Additionally, users can enable a backup extension that creates per-site backups daily. These backups are stored in S3. Backups to external services (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.) will be possible in the future.

Our primary response to the loss of data center is to recreate infrastructure in the differente availability zone or different AWS region - depending on the availability of the AWS infrastructure.
