Complete Financial and Business Solutions (CFBS) is a group of financial advisors and business analysts who are passionate about business, finance and providing peace of mind through their in-depth knowledge and analysis of financial and business circumstances for clients.
CFBS required a backup and recovery solution for sensitive data. CloudZA decided to implement a redundant, resilient and secure backup solution for CFBS. 

The CloudZA Solutions Team deduced that the main AWS services required for the solution would be Amazon S3, Amazon S3 Glacier, Deep Archive and AWS Lambda to import updated files directly from the Google Drive API. 

Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) was the ideal service to build the solution around as it enables the best Disaster Recovery (DR) strategies. Considering the nature of organisations in the financial sector – security, security and sovereignty of data were major requirements for the solution. 

S3 storage classes offer 99.999999999% (11 9’s) of durability. This makes Amazon S3 arguably the most secure backup storage solution and one of the most reliable storage services for DR.

Cloudza provided a solution to migrate CFBS’s backup data to S3 and implement S3 lifecycle policies for moving the data to Glacier. CFBS backup data will be kept for a term of 30 – 40 years and cancelled clients’ data will be deleted after 5 years.
