Disaster recovery testing

Aiven provides disaster recovery testing services to help you plan for data center or service outages.

An Aiven specialist simulates an issue with the virtual machines for a test service in your environment. For example, they can test failovers when a primary instance of your Aiven service fails and recovery times when there's a complete outage.
