What do you like best?

The ease of configuring your EBS or Disk EC2, to create daily snapshots is super easy and intuitive, it allows you to configure different snapshots, by zone, parameterizing each EC2 or EBS, from an idle location.

I am really amazed at how this tool can back up 2TB of our instances in just minutes.

Without a doubt, it is a tool, which parameterizes each backup by day, week or month, and takes a complete photo of each of your EC2, EBS and S3. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

So far, so good, it works perfectly for me to back up my EC2 disks.

Maybe it is a bit expensive since, in order to have the tools enabled, you must be able to have EC2 plans, which has a cost according to the structure a bit high.

Although it is easy to use, for an advanced user, for a user with zero or little experience, it is a bit complicated to understand how to configure a backup plan, for a zone and with specific rules. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

If you don't have an Amazon AWS account, this is the time to purchase it

Amazon AWS Backup is a comprehensive solution in the company's infrastructure because it gives you security and confidence when backing up EC2 or EBS instances Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before they had to be doing a weekly snapshot manually of my EC2s, but the AWS backup could solve this, backing up our EC2 disks.

At first I had no idea how AWS worked and when I tried to do it alone, it was a bit complex, but our company has business support, and I had the support guide from Amazon.

And you can configure several solutions and define rules by territory, to be able to take snapshots of all our instances, in different periods, either daily, weekly or monthly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Easy to use and great pricing structure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The process to restore ec2 images is not as easy as we hoped. You cannot attach elastic ips and security keys without going thru the set up wizard typically used to launch an ec2.

Additionally, you set up backup windows which isn't as great as being able to schedule for a specific time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This low cost tool works great to ensure all cloud resources are backed up. And it provides great flexibility for backup frequencies and low cost storage options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Our company started to explore more Amazon web services and encountered this service. It had amazing technology for quickly backing up the data which is stored. So any data which is lost is recovered completely with this service without any barrier. We were able to manage information accordingly with its amazing features. The symmetry it brought into our system was uptight and we were able to organise the things efficiently. The effortless technology had made our lives so much easier than before. This hardware is the best example of great interface application. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some minor issues we dealt while using this service. It had overwhelming protection that does not allow the unrecognizable service to be opened. So we had to manually do this and it took a lot of time. This wasted the working hours as well. Otherwise this is great application. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It has worked pretty well in the backup domain and done every possible thing it can to help in the progress of trading. It had set an ideal standard for other alternatives and completion has become more tough with its powerful engines. The help it gives in the times of emergency conditions is admiring and we had our servers given in its safe hands.

What do you like best?

Choosing AWS is preventing the company from acquiring additional hardware. The latter only increase operating expenses.

In addition, data transfer takes place at a lower cost to promote information retrieval after a disaster. We keep our data with an automatic system that allows us to recover them in case of emergency. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Although the information stored on a server can be accessed at any time, the system may suffer malfunctions. We are aware that technology is always subject to technical problems or failures.

The second main problem is integration with operating systems such as Linux.

In addition, performing a cloud backup requires an excellent Internet connection to enter the server at the desired time. Otherwise, working in the cloud becomes impossible with connectivity and network problems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Highly recommended backup with excellent performance and easy to use for medium and large companies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

AWS helps us develop teamwork with greater coordination among employees. The tasks are performed based on documents and applications that receive updates in real time. In addition, the use of the cloud gives us enough freedom for each team member to be able to exchange information depending on our users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
