MYNT

AWS BACKUP SOLUTION

Mynt’s understanding of brand, and their ability to create engaging customer experiences and conversational communications allows them to regularly work with leading global businesses, and to help them solve their holistic marketing challenges.

The Challenge

Following a data loss, Mynt had a requirement for implementing up a backup solution and were introduced by AWS for Rebura to assist in this.

“Following a data loss, we quickly needed to setup an offsite backup of our files. We contacted our AWS Account Manager who recommended that we speak to Rebura. Rebura were amazing from the first interaction and quickly provided an expedited solution to match our rather aggressive timescales.”

The Solution

Our proposed solution included setting up a new AWS account in line with the Well Architected framework.

We configured the AWS infrastructure including S3, Glacier, VPC and Storage Gateway. Rebura configured lifecycle policies to move data from S3 to glacier when it was unused for a set amount of time.

Our team then began working with Mynt and their internal IT to configure backup jobs on their new Synology Diskstation, which would cache local versions of files and would run the backup jobs to S3.

Rebura also included a Snowball to ingest archive data from the existing USB drives. Storage Gateway is attached to an S3 bucket and configured as file gateway. Site to site VPN is configured between office and AWS to access Storage Gateway. Users can then connect to Storage Gateway to access Archive data stored in S3 over SMB share (Windows and Mac compatible).

Key features for Mynt:

  • Access management and account setup
  • Configuration of security groups, password policies, access keys, IAM access, root account usage
  • Documentation of application flows, dependencies, backup procedures, RTOs and RPOs
  • Monitoring and encryption
  • Regular testing

“They kept us regularly updated on the progress of the build, snowball delivery and upload procedure. They now provide us support for our backups and always respond immediately to any queries alongside the quarterly test, which always flies through. I’d highly recommend working with Rebura and look forward to building our partnership together”

The Results

Mynt now have a fully functioning backup solution so never have to worry about losing data again! This is tested quarterly by Rebura and the results are shared across the company and their client base.
