AWS Backup or Clumio?

Clumio delivers better usability, speed, and cost

Your AWS data estate is growing and changing rapidly.
Is your backup and recovery solution keeping up?

Consider

  • Usability
    - Are your backups air-gapped? Many compliance standards require it.
    - Will the solution scale to your data volume, now and in the future?
    - Does the solution make it easy to find and restore data?
  • Speed
    - Are ingest and restore speeds fast enough to be useful?
    - Can your application access backup data while it’s being restored?
  • Cost
    - Are you paying too much per gb/month?
    - Do your backups hinge on enabling replication?
    -Can you retain records as long as needed affordably?
    - Are you able to control exactly what data is backed up?

    Clumio just makes it too easy
    I like how easy it is to use, we have it back up every night and had zero issues, and the email we get every morning telling us that the backup happened is informative and reassuring. You can't ask for better software with a team of people to make sure it's all working for you. Great product.

    Easy to use, comprehensive backup solution
    The interface is extremely simple to use and very intuitive. The time it takes to locate a backup and perform any necessary recovery processes is minimal and, in my experience, complete. When it comes to a solution that multiple people of various skill sets can use, this should be at the top of the list.
