KitchenOS is the Software as a Service (SaaS) platform designed to host all cloud applications developed and/or managed by Adaptics, Ltd. dba, Fresco. All KitchenOS cloud applications are deployed in the Amazon Web Services, AWS Cloud. All KitchenOS server instances deployed in the AWS cloud, are provisioned, monitored, and managed by the KitchenOS DevOps team.
All KitchenOS application data is stored in AWS RDS databases, which can only be accessed by the backend Virtual Private Clouds, VPCs. Application files are stored on file servers separate from front-end and back-end servers. AWS RDS databases are automatically replicated between multiple Availability Zones, AZs for high availability and fault tolerance. Database data is encrypted at rest and continuously backed up for point in time restore to alternative instances as needed.

Your data is housed in an AWS RDS database, which is a modern, highly available, fault-tolerant, continuously backed up database application. What does this mean? When you use KitchenOS, your data is automatically replicated to multiple data center facilities and backed up in real-time, keeping your project information safe and available 24/7/365.
Disaster Recovery Plan
KitchenOS has a disaster recovery plan which includes step-by-step instructions for completely installing and restoring the KitchenOS system. This plan is accessible only to authorized KitchenOS personnel. The plan is not published publicly as there is sensitive information within the plan that may compromise the security of the hosted or cloud environment.
In the event of a complete catastrophe, KitchenOS is prepared to be restored within 12 hours of a total data center failure.
