SCC Cloud Continuity Service for Amazon Web Services (AWS), combines low-cost, scalable, geo-redundant cloud-based storage with a highly-available and reliable virtual server instance to create a disaster recovery (DR) site, alleviating the need for time-consuming on-premise system backups and providing 24x7x365 online access to a replica SCC MediaServer system.
 
Existing on-premise SCC MediaServer systems will immediately benefit from low-cost, highly redundant Amazon S3 cloud storage. Once enabled, high-resolution files will be moved automatically to Amazon geo-redundant S3 storage, eliminating local dependency on costly and error-prone on-premise magnetic storage systems.
 
Existing SCC MediaServer database records, as well as new record inserts, modifications and deletions are replicated automatically to the Amazon AWS cloud-based Continuity Server instance.
 
During normal operation, the SCC Cloud Continuity Server is available 24 x 7 x 365 for read-only access to authorized system administrators.
 
In the event of an unexpected failure of the on-premise SCC MediaServer system, the SCC Cloud Continuity Server can be switched into "primary" mode, enabling full read-write access to authorized users.
 
Existing SCC software modules licensed for the on-premise MediaServer system are automatically enabled on the SCC Cloud Continuity Server.
 
The SCC Cloud Continuity Service provides a logical upgrade path for sites ultimately wishing to convert their on-premise SCC MediaServer system(s) to the hosted Amazon AWS cloud-based SCC MediaServer Cloud Edition system, in which case no server and storage components are located on-premise.
