Why Backup and Restore on AWS?

Facilitate faster backup times through automated policies and easier data recovery, and reduce the need to provision and maintain on-premises infrastructure. Here we list some of the key challenges customers experience when determining a Backup and Restore strategy:

Address Data Growth
As more businesses understand the value of data, data growth and increased diversity of data can work against storage optimization solutions such as deduplication and compression. Existing backup and restore solutions become more expensive, both in personnel time and licensing. Customers have seen reduction in up-front CapEx investment and capacity planning challenges and are able to eliminate bottlenecks and constraints of on-prem systems.

Restore
Utilizing tape media, restores can often involve unpredictable elements such as delivery equipment malfunction and more opportunities for user error. Unreliable processes create obstacles to RTO attainment, reduce business performance and agility, and leave organizations at risk of non-compliance.

With AWS, customers can experience faster data recovery, maintain control of where their data resides, and minimize network latency.

Scale
Over-provisioning storage resources for backup workloads aims to solve for uncertainty around peak demand, and inefficiently allocates idle resources during steady-state periods. In spite of adequate resources, many solutions still require forklift migrations, cannot avoid periods of downtime, and increase risk of data loss.

With AWS customers can use and pay for only what they need. Gain the ease of scaling resources up or down on-demand as workload needs fluctuate. Eliminate bottlenecks and constraints with online, distributed data storage and ensure data is safe with instant replication.

Reduce Cost
Customers tell us conventional procurement of software licenses is slow, ongoing maintenance and refresh costs are unreasonably high, and purchasing agreements often require up-front commitments.

With a flexible pay as you go model, customers can reduce up-front investment and the need to over-provision. Automate data movement to less expensive tiers of storage and lower total cost of ownership.
