Z Gallerie AWS Case Study

Secure SQL Databases on AWS



High Traffic Environment

Z Gallerie was challenged by a single point of failure in their Microsoft SQL database environment. Z Gallerie engaged CorpInfo to eliminate the single point of failure and implement highly available SQL database mirroring. CorpInfo deployed resources to manage the architecture and deployment of a highly available SQL database that was mirrored over multiple availability zones for redundancy, availability, and scale ability.


Vice President of Information Technology, Gary Zorko, summed up their challenge by stating, “We’re a small team without a full-time DBA, and we were struggling with introducing a new level of redundancy and resilience to our AWS-hosted commerce database infrastructure.”



(HA) Database Across
Multiple Availability Zones

The solution for this project was a combination of Amazon Web Services products:


  1. EC2

  2. S3

  3. Multi-AZ SQL DB


CorpInfo set up a highly available (HA) database across multiple availability zones and ensured the integrity of the Z Gallerie DB tier by implementing security standards and best practices to ensure both redundancy and HA.


CorpInfo subsequently configured SQL mirroring for failover and also established a policy for snapshots and backups of the SQL databases; which are stored in Amazon S3.
