AEM Author Dynamic Backup Server for Disaster Recovery

Avatar

Level 1

How can I Implement a secondary dynamic backup server for an AEM Author ? During disaster recovery times, I can switch the secondary author server to the primary author in such instance.  Any suggestions, would be much appreciated.

TIA.

@psdf - You can refer to the detailed documentation on backup & recovery over here: Online or Offlines backups

https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-65/administering/operations/backup-and-re...

You can restore a backup as follows:

  • In case you performed a Filesystem Snapshot Backup, you can simply restore an image of the system.
  • In case you created the backup as a zip file, just unzip the contents in a new folder and start AEM from that location.

Thanks for the response.  

I am not looking for snapshot or storage backup.

Our environment is having only one author. so if that author goes down, immediately to switch over to any secondary author( which has same information like mirror of primary author).  Usually in databases we have primary and secondary db and if primary db goes down , they can switch to the secondary one.  so, looking for that setup to achieve it. 

Thanks again.

You can setup a cold standby instance which is exact same replica of prod instance and deploy regular content & code backups on it. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwiYloSzt5TwA...
