Cloud Foundry is a platform that can run on any IaaS. It is a distributed system composed mostly of stateless components, in true cloud-native fashion, but state has to, eventually, live somewhere. Disaster recovery (DR) is usually a non-functional operational readiness requirement but it is not always well-understood. Platform Engineers need to have a trusted DR plan as it’s crucial to both their business continuity strategy and to the developers of the platform.

This talk is split into two sections. The first part will be about the theory of DR for distributed systems and how this theory applies to Cloud Foundry. DR comes with a set of tradeoffs that platform engineers need to incorporate into their platform architecture. In the second part, Chunyi and George will be talking about BOSH Backup a Restore (BBR). A tool that can be part of a DR plan when Cloud Foundry is deployed using BOSH. They will discuss patterns of multi-site setups and the tradeoffs platform engineers can make in order to minimise the impact of backups.
