How do I start my backups after I install the Revyz Jira Backup & Restore app from the marketplace?

Once you install the app from the marketplace, the first backup is automatically triggered and your future daily backups are immediately scheduled.

The backend infrastructure we have built is all server less, it takes a minute or so for a new “container” to get spun up to get the job worked on. This is true for both backups and restores.

Revyz Data Security Model

Data security is paramount at Revyz. We ensure data is encrypted in-motion and at-rest.

Data at-rest is encrypted using industry standard envelope encryption scheme.

  1. Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 to protect data in-motion over the internet

  2. TLS is terminated in Revyz’s cloud compute process

  3. Tenant specific and unique key encryption key (KEK) is created and stored in AWS Key Management System (KMS)

  4. A unique data encryption key (DEK) is generated per “n” objects used to encrypt data at-rest stored in S3. Objects references Jira issues, attachments and configuration elements within Jira

  5. DEK is further encrypted using KEK and is stored in S3 along with the corresponding objects that where encrypted with that specific DEK
