Data hosting and backup policy
Yabbu production services are hosted on Amazon Web Services’ (“AWS”) EC2 platform. The physical servers are located in AWS’s secure data center in Ireland and all data thus fall under the EU-US Privacy Shield. From Amazon’s documentation:
AWS has achieved ISO 27001 certification and has been validated as a Level 1 service provider under the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). We undergo annual SOC 1 audits and have been successfully evaluated at the Moderate level for Federal government systems as well as DIACAP Level 2 for DoD systems.
To minimize service interruptions due to hardware failure, natural disasters, or other catastrophes, Yabbu implements a Disaster Recovery program. All of Yabbu’s servers are backed up nightly and backups are retained for one week. In addition, all data is mirrored almost immediately to standby servers in a second data centre. The secondary data centre is always in the same country as your primary data centre, so you can be confident your data is still protected under local laws. In the event of the most serious of catastrophes, resulting in the complete loss of our primary data centre, your workspaces will be available within a matter of minutes via our Disaster Recovery site. Data is replicated to this site in near real-time, so business can continue as usual.
