5 1. INTRODUCTION As with many organizations today, your server houses critical data and applications that your business depends on. Are your servers completely secure and protected from potential disasters? Your server data and apps depend on many factors that may be unrelated to your IT environment, including natural disasters, intruders, or other interruptions. While many organizations are not planning to be victims of any potential disaster, their goal should be to mitigate the risk if one such disaster occurs. Therefore it is essential for every organization to setup an effective Disaster Recovery (DR) solution to protect their business servers from potential disasters. To solve these challenges, we present Avlor s Online Server Cloud Recovery Solution. This paper describes an overview and working of the server cloud disaster recovery solution from Avlor. Avlor s automated Server Cloud Recovery solution replicates existing physical and virtual servers from anywhere to the AWS cloud. You can protect your Windows Servers with automated bare metal backups with ready-to-launch virtual servers in the AWS Cloud. Incremental backups ensure that the failover servers in the cloud are always an exact clone of your on premise servers. 2. PRODUCT OVERVIEW Avlor s automated online service provides full-server cloud recovery to the Amazon Cloud in just seconds. There are 2 main steps: 1) The Avlor s Disaster Recovery (DR) Agent running on the server being backed up performs the backup of server(s) and stores the backup images in your AWS S3 storage account. 2) These backup images from S3 storage are used to prepare the failover virtual servers (EC2 instances), which are ready to launch with a single click (Refer the overview diagram below). 4

6 Note that, it is mandatory to have an AWS account before you proceed to setup your Account. Figure 1: Overview diagram 3. GETTING STARTED 3.1 Sign up Go to and click on the Login link (Fig 2) Figure 2: Online Login 5

9 4. ACCOUNT SETUP 4.1 Overview In account setup, you need to create a new IAM (Learn more) User Account with required permissions for Avlor to access your S3 Bucket, to store your server backup images and to create EC2 instances (virtual servers). AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) enable you to manage and control access to AWS resources for your users in a secure way. IAM is required to manage permissions for users to access your AWS Account. You can create new users in IAM and assign them with individual security credentials (for e.g. access keys, passwords, and secret keys) to provide access to AWS resources and services. You can also manage permissions and control specific operations that a user can perform in your AWS Account. Avlor requires few S3 and EC2 permissions (as shown below) to upload backup images and to create EC2 instances of your servers respectively. S3 permissions: s3:createbucket, s3:deleteobject, s3:getbucketlocation, s3:getobject, s3:getobjectacl, s3:listallmybuckets, s3:listbucket, s3:putobject, s3:putobjectacl EC2 permissions: ec2:attachvolume, ec2:cancelconversiontask, ec2:createvolume, ec2:createtags, ec2:deletevolume, ec2:describeaccountattributes, ec2:describeavailabilityzones, ec2:describeconversiontasks, ec2:describeinstances, ec2:describekeypairs, ec2:describeregions, ec2:describesecuritygroups, ec2:describesubnets, ec2:describevolumes, ec2:detachvolume, ec2:importinstance, ec2:importvolume, ec2:modifyinstanceattribute, ec2:runinstances, ec2:startinstances, ec2:stopinstances, ec2:describevpcs We provide an AWS Cloud Formation script, which automates the creation of IAM User Account. AWS Cloud Formation is an AWS Web service that provides an easy way to create collection of related AWS resources to the developers and businesses. 8

10 You should download the script template from our application and run it in your AWS Account to create IAM User Account for Avlor (Refer figure below). Figure 6: Account Setup Overview 9

11 4.2 Steps to create a new IAM User Step 1: Go to the Account Setup tab and select the appropriate AWS Region (It is the Geographical Region, where your backup server images are stored and virtual servers (EC2 Instances) are created.) Step 2: Click on Click to Create button and follow the steps to create your IAM User account in AWS (Refer Appendix 8.1 for instructions). Figure 7: Choose Region and complete IAM User Creation Step 3: Once you complete all the instructions, you will get the access and secret keys of your Amazon account. Check the box I have created a new IAM user and enter the keys in the relevant fields. Click on the Next button (Refer screen below). Figure 8: Enter access and secret key 10

12 Now you will be navigated to the Service Instance Creation page. 4.3 Service Instance Creation Service instance is an EC2 instance, which is launched with an EC2 instance creation Agent. This service instance initially creates the failover instance using first two failover points/restore points. The EC2 instance creation Agent will automatically create the failover instance of your server. Upon downtime, these failover instances can be launched via Avlor Online portal. Figure 9: Service Instance Creation To create a new service instance, Avlor requires few details 1. Availability Zone: Each region in AWS has multiple, isolated locations known as Availability Zones. The drop down displays the list of availability zones based on the region selected. Please choose the required availability zone. 2. Instance type: Instances are virtual servers that are optimized to fit for different use cases. Amazon EC2 provides a wide range of instance types that are optimized to fit for different use cases. Select any of the listed instance types from the dropdown. Click here to learn more about instance types. Select the Instance Type as per your requirements. Note: Amazon supports only the listed instance types for server migration. You can change the instance type once failover is launched 11

13 Figure 10: Instance Types 3. Instance Name: Enter the service instance name for better identification of your instance in the AWS Console. NOTE: Instance Name should not exceed 100 characters. 4. Key Pair Name: Enter the Key Pair Name. To log in to your instance, you must create a new key pair to get the password (See screenshot). Figure 11: Create Key Pair You can also enter the existing key pair name for the service instance with respect to the region selected in the account setup (See screenshot). To find the existing Key Pair name, 12

14 login to your AWS Console and navigate to your EC2 dashboard. Click on the Key Pairs link on the left panel and choose the respective Key Pair name available for the selected region. Figure 12: Key Pair Name 5. EC2 Instance: Choose the required EC2 Instance platform. You can either choose Classic or VPC platform to launch the EC2 instances. Learn more on EC2-Classic and EC2-VPC platforms. Follow the steps below if you choose Classic platform: If you choose Classic platform, enter only the security group id and click on the Finish button. A security group acts as a virtual firewall that controls traffic for one or more instances. You can add rules to each security group that allow inbound and outbound traffic to that instance. Security group id should be in the format of "sg-xxxxxxxx" To get the security group id for your account, please do the following: 1. Login to your AWS management console and select the appropriate AWS region (chosen already in the first step of Account Setup-Refer section 4.2-Step1). 2. Now navigate to the EC2 dashboard and click on security groups on the left panel. The list of security groups available for your AWS account with respect to the selected region will be displayed (Refer screen below). 13

15 Figure 13: Classic-Security group id Note: Make sure that you enter the security group id from the EC2 security groups in case you have chosen EC2 classic as the instance platform. Copy and paste the security group id in the appropriate field in Avlor Portal as shown below: Figure 14: Enter Classic-Security group id Click Finish to complete the Service Instance Creation. In case if you choose VPC as your EC2 instance platform please do the following: 14

16 If you choose VPC as your EC2 instance platform, you need to enter both the subnet id and security group id to create a new service instance. To find the security group id for your VPC, follow the steps shown below: 1. Login to your AWS management console and select the appropriate AWS region (chosen already in the first step of Account Setup-Refer section 4.2-Step1). 2. Now go to the VPC dashboard and choose the VPC available for that particular region. 3. Click on the Security Groups link on the left panel. 4. A list of security group ids available for your account will be displayed. Figure 15: VPC-Security Group Id Copy the necessary security group id and paste in the Avlor Portal. Figure 16: Enter Classic-Security group id 15

17 To find the subnet id for your VPC, please do the following: A subnet is termed as a range of IP addresses in your VPC. You can launch AWS resources into the selected subnet. Use a public subnet for resources that should be connected to the Internet, and use a private subnet for resources that should not be connected to the Internet. To find the subnet for your VPC, please do the following: 1. Login to your AWS console and navigate to the VPC dashboard. 2. Select the respective VPC from the dropdown. 3. Now click on the subnets link on the left panel and choose the required subnet id (See screenshot). Figure 17: VPC-subnet id Copy and paste the subnet id in the appropriate field as shown below: 16

18 Figure 18: Enter VPC-subnet id Note: Make sure that both subnet id and security group id are from the same Region, VPC, and Availability zone. Subnet Id is in the format of subnet-xxxxxxx and Security Group Id is in the format of sg-xxxxxxx Figure 19: Choose VPC as EC2 instance Platform After you enter all the details, a new S3 bucket will be created in your AWS account and your backup server images will be uploaded to that bucket. The S3 bucket name (for e.g. avlor availabilityzone) can be found under Settings Advanced tab of our application. Your account setup is completed successfully. Now download the Avlor DR Agent to start the backup and recovery of your server(s). 17

19 Note: Make sure you do not make any changes to the details that you provided during account setup. Figure 20: Click to download Agent Note: You can create additional service instances from the Settings tab of Avlor portal, if you wish to run each failover server on a separate service instance. However, you can run multiple servers on a single service instance. Follow the steps below. Go to the Settings Service Instance tab Click on the Create button to create new service instance. Enter the required details (as shown above in section 4.3) and click on create button to create service instance. 18

20 Figure 21: Create Additional Service Instances Once you complete Account Setup, you should download and install the Avlor DR agent on the server that you need to backup for DR purpose. This agent sends the backup images of your servers to your AWS S3 storage account. You can click on the Help Video button to know how to install the Avlor DR Agent (Refer figure 20). Refer to Appendix 8.4 and find the steps for installing the Avlor DR Agent on your server. Note: Please read the requirements and limitations of Avlor Server Cloud Recovery Solution from Appendix 8.2 and Appendix 8.3 respectively, before you install the DR Agent on your server. 5. SERVER BACKUP SETUP AND START Once the Agent is installed on your server, you must configure the Agent to start the backup of your server images to the Cloud. The DR Agent starts the data collection and image creation of your servers and these images will be stored in your local folder and then uploaded to the AWS S3 bucket. The DR Agent automatically takes image of your complete server drives (including OS, apps and data) and then uploads it securely with AES-256 bit encryption to the AWS Cloud. 5.1 Steps to configure the Avlor DR Agent to start backup and upload of server images 19

21 Step 1: Compatibility Checklist The following screen shows all the prerequisites to start your server backup and recovery. Please check all the requirements and click on Next to continue.

23 Step 3: How the agent works? Is your data secure? Click on Next to continue. Figure 24: How the agent works? Is your data secure? 22

24 Step 4: Where is your disk image files stored? The disk image files are stored in a local folder on your server and then moved to your AWS account with encryption. Click on Next to continue. Figure 25: Where is your disk image files stored? 23

25 Step 5: Source Drive Selection. A default server name and backup set name will be displayed on this screen. You can change/edit these details as per your requirements. Select the Source Drives to be backed up. Click on Next. Figure 26: Source Drive Selection Note: You must select the operating system volume to create the failover instance of your server. 24

26 Step 6: Select local storage folder Click on Browse and select the local storage folder (destination drive) to store the server backup images. Figure 27: Select local Storage Folder Click Next to continue. Note: You can also select mapped network storage or network UNC path or a local folder of your server for storing the server images for local recovery. If you choose Network UNC path to store the backup server images, please do the following. 1. Choose Network path as your destination folder and click Next. 25

27 Figure 28: Choose Network UNC path A pop up appears as shown below. Please enter the network credentials and click Ok. Figure 29: Enter Network Details 26

28 Note: In case if your server is configured under Active directory (AD), follow the steps below: 1. Make sure you have created user account with admin rights in the AD 2. Choose the network UNC path and click on Next (as shown in figure 18) 3. A pop up appears, where you should enter the network credentials and click on OK (as shown in figure 19). In case if your server is configured under Active directory (AD), username should be as shown in the following format: domainname/username Note: Before you choose network storage path to store the backup images, make sure you do the following: 1. Enable Read/Write permission for everyone in your network (shared path/folder). Figure 30: Enable Read/Write permission 27

29 2. Go to Control Panel Network and Internet Network and Sharing Center Advanced sharing settings. Turn on Network Sharing as shown in the figure below. Figure 31: Advanced Sharing Settings Note: The above figure shows the file sharing settings for Home network. You need to make similar change for Public as well as Domain networks. Step 7: Select Options Initial Backup Time: It is the initial time taken to perform complete backup of your server images in your local folder. This backup speed depends on your system hardware specifications. The initial backup time of your server should be set slightly ahead of the system time. Incremental Frequency: Incremental frequency provides backup of your server images that have changed since the last incremental backup. You can choose the frequency of 28

30 incremental backups of your servers to hourly, daily, weekly or monthly. You can edit the incremental frequency whenever required in the future. This new frequency will be updated for subsequent incremental backups. Internet Bandwidth Limit: It decides the upload speed of backup images to your S3. This is completely based on the internet bandwidth speed of your server. Local Recovery: Local Recovery allows you to store the server backup images in your local folder. You can enable this option to store the backup images locally. Make sure you have enough disk space to store the files before you choose this option. Refer Appendix 8.2 to learn more on Local Recovery. These images can be later used for recovery through the Local Recovery Agent. Refer Appendix 8.6 on how to do this. AWS Import/Export Option: Users are given options to Upload all images to S3 or Upload only incremental backups to S3 to enable reliable and redundant data storage. Uploading all images to S3 becomes complex if the backup storage size is large. Therefore, users can upload only the incremental images to S3 if the server storage is large. In case of choosing upload only the incremental images to S3, users need to transport their server data through portable storage devices. AWS Import/Export allows users to move huge amounts of data in and out of AWS through the usage of portable storage devices (Like a small hard drive or data storage device) for transport. AWS will transfer your entire data directly using Amazon s high-speed internal network. Please refer Appendix 8.5 to learn more on AWS Import/Export options. Storage media destination: This is the portable storage device, where your backup server images are stored. Its acts as a secondary storage destination folder and images from this folder will be saved in your S3 bucket of AWS cloud. [Note: Follow similar procedure shown in step 6, in case if you choose network UNC path as your storage media destination] Click Next once you complete choosing appropriate options (Refer figure below). 29

31 Figure 32: Select Options Step 8: Failover Instance Options Enter the following details to create failover instance of your server. 1. The list of service instance names created either during Account Setup or from the Settings tab will be displayed here. Choose appropriate service instance name from the dropdown as per your requirements. 2. The Availability zone will be changed with respect to the service instance name that you have chosen in the previous step. 3. Select the instance type. Instances are virtual servers that are optimized to fit for different use cases. Refer to Appendix 8.2 on the supported instance types. Click here to learn more about instance types. 4. Choose the EC2 Instance platform. Learn more on EC2-Classic and EC2-VPC platforms. If you choose Classic platform, enter the security group id and click Finish. [Note: Check the EC2 dashboard of your AWS Console for more details on the supported EC2 platforms.] 30

51 Therefore, if local recovery option is selected, make sure that you have enough disk space in your destination server to store the backup image files. Backup files can be either stored in a local disk or network drives for local recovery. If local recovery is not selected, all the backup image files will be deleted once when the backup is complete. These backup files will be stored in the destination folder temporarily since at least one backup image is required to take the next incremental backup of your server. These backup image files will be deleted once after the next incremental backup is complete. >> EC2 instance creation Avlor s EC2 Instance Controller runs on a service instance in the cloud to incorporate the incremental backups into standby instances. This EC2 Instance controller will manage these instances keeping them up-to-date and ready to be launched when needed. The service instance is responsible only for creating the failover instances of your servers and should not be used for any storage purposes. This instance should not be stopped or terminated before the failover instance is launched. Please read the AWS EC2 Prerequisites to learn more. 8.3 AVLOR LIMITATIONS This agent can be installed only on Windows server 2003, 2003 R2, 2008 and 2008 R2. Active Directory/Domain Controller servers cannot be migrated for backup (Note: Servers under the AD can be migrated) Servers installed with AD/DC could not be migrated. We can allow only up to 7 backup sets for each server. OS drive should be selected as source drive to create failover instance. Users cannot use the same drive as source and destination (For example, if C and D are selected in source drives, these drives cannot be used as destination). After installing and uninstalling the Avlor agent, users must reboot the server. Dual boot operating system is not supported. 50

52 It is possible to add only 11 drives per failover instance. The EBS volume attached on the service/failover instance should not be disturbed or interrupted. The service instance should not be stopped or terminated, since it is responsible for applying the incremental backups to the failover instances of your servers. 8.4 STEPS TO INSTALL AVLOR DR AGENT The Avlor DR Agent sets up backup and recovery for your servers and stores the server backup images in your AWS S3 account. Follow the steps below to install the Avlor DR Agent. Step 1: Start Installation Once the Agent is downloaded, extract the zip file, right click on the setup and click open. A setup wizard appears; click on Next to continue. Figure 56: Setup Wizard Step 2: License Agreement 51

53 Please accept the terms and conditions and click on next. Figure 57: Accept terms and conditions Step 3: Select Additional Tasks Select the check box if you want to create a desktop shortcut icon. Click on Next to continue. 52

54 Figure 58: Create a desktop icon Step 4: Ready to Install Click on the Install button to install the agent on your server system. 53
