Reduce the cost and risk of getting to the cloud faster with a single data protection service for operational recovery, data recovery, and compliance for AWS.
Protect data in EC2 apps that run on EBS volumes and save significant costs on data retention
Manage operational recovery with the orchestration of in-account snapshots for free. The service creates air-gapped backup copies to support data recovery of files, volumes, or records, if production accounts are compromised. Long-term data retention and compliance is managed by a uniform set of backup policies with automated monitoring. The amount of data protected and retention times determine pricing, which deliver predictable costs.
Snapshots support operational recovery. But to guard against account compromise, customers must store snapshot copies in additional accounts, then write scripts to manage to limitations on the number of copies. Once done, cloud bills rise due to high snapshot costs (2-5x that of AWS S3). Costs spiral further out of control because snapshots are the only tool for long-term data retention.
These tools are built on code bases that existed before the internet. Each approach – primary storage array snapshots, traditional backup arrays, and archives are often provided by different vendors, with different technologies and economics. These fragmented approaches don’t translate into the cloud. Complexity and surprise public cloud fees abound. The complexity of managing these architectures is just daunting.
