When Disaster Strikes the Cloud: Who, What, When, Where and How to recover Enterprise applications needs to be able to survive large scale disasters. While some born-on-the-cloud applications have built-in disaster recovery functionality, non-born-on-the-cloud enterprise applications typically expect the infrastructure to provide disaster recovery support. OpenStack provides various building blocks that enable an OpenStack application to survive a disaster; these building blocks are being improved in Juno and Kilo. Some of these building blocks need to be enabled by the OpenStack cloud administrator and others need to be leveraged by the application deployer. In this presentation, we will review basic disaster recovery concepts covering when, where, and what is done at each stage of the application cloud life-cycle. We will describe the existing building blocks and we will explain the roles of cloud administrator and the cloud end-user, in enabling OpenStack applications to survive a disaster. We will then detail new features in Juno and coming in Kilo that will help enhance OpenStack's disaster recovery support. We will conclude by detailing the remaining gaps and present some tools that address these gaps, allowing an application to survive a disaster when running on an OpenStack cloud.
