    "Appranix App Resilience Platform - Must have for cloud automation"

    What do you like best?

    Appranix is the first cloud service of it's kind in the market that delivers true cloud application environment level resilience. Since it is SaaS, on-boarding our AWS account and doing a quick app environment failover DR test was a breeze, quite literally with a single click of a button. There is no agent to install and no additional data management infrastructure on top of our AWS services. Appranix uses all the cloud-native services to protect our cloud environments composed of our EC2 instances, EBS volumes, Security groups, Load Balancers, and VPC configurations. Appranix automatically discovers all the services and cloud configurations automatically so you can create a composition of those services as a "Cloud Assembly". The service automatically builds an application environment time machine in the backend based on our protection policies. We have four different protection SLO templates. Now, Appranix makes it much easier for our SREs to provide complete resiliency at the application level with the capability to go back in time and recover the entire application environment in the primary region of the cloud or an alternative region to recover from any type of disruption or a disaster. You can also configure your AWS Route-53 based DNS zones so you can change over to a new failover environment literally with a button click to further reduce RTO.

    What do you dislike?

    I really do not have anything I dislike about the service.

    Recommendations to others considering the product:

    Just make sure you create a separate security key in your AWS account for Appranix to read the meta-data of your production environment using the API.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    Prior to Appranix, true DR on AWS was not at all possible for our entire cloud environment across a different region or even within a zone. There are backup products in the market that protect and recover individual VMs. There used to be VMware SRM for VMware based datacenters. You could consider Appranix as VMware SRM Plus Plus specifically built for cloud platforms such as AWS, Google, and Azure. The fact that Appranix is a cloud service makes it very easy to get started. We are now using for multiple use cases, for example, creating a copy of the production environment for patch testing becomes very easy. This ensures that we test all the security patches with an exact copy of production so we know we can confidently roll out those operating system or database patches.
