Mitigating AWS outage

We are considering moving to ScyllaDB Cloud. If there is an outage in an AWS region, how do you mitigate it?

In a worst-case scenario of all nodes going down, a backup will be used to restore the data.

In most cases, ScyllaDB’s high availability and data replication ensures that even if some nodes are down, the data remains available. Using multiple data centers, multiple regions, and multiple racks within a region increases the availability and protects against failures.
