Amazon S3

Anytime – and I do mean anytime – you have files of any size over, say, 50kb and they are static you should reach for S3 first. In 7 years of using the service, I have never once lost a file. There have been a total of maybe 30 minutes of downtime in 7 years, which was a DNS level issue. The speed is excellent, the availability is incredible, and there simply is no good competitor for the price.

If a backup solution is needed without purchasing an appliance, the Intronis solution does a great job of backing up data and replicating to the cloud. The backup is restricted by total data, so any databases and other items are covered as long as it's under the total data cap.

  • S3 is available in various regions around the world.
  • You can host a website on S3 and use AWS optimized routing for very fast page loads.
  • S3 is versioned, so you can restore a backup.

  • Linked connection to the Barracuda Cloud Control console to manage essentials and backup appliances
  • Alerting from backup software can range from simple to complex as well as schedule options

Cons

  • S3 web console is great, but could be more user-friendly.
  • S3 versioning should be enabled by default, and users prompted to disable.
  • S3 desktop client would help end users access data.

  • Purchasing and activating Barracuda Backup appliances via Intronis complicates the process as appliances use the Barracuda Cloud Console for management.
  • Intronis Backup software could use some improvement on reliability as it requires massaging more often than the Barracuda Backup appliances.

Alternatives Considered

Several issues with Dropbox where it was hard to set up in the application I was using and once it was set up it would work fine but then become disconnected for really no reason and the support from Dropbox was not that great. The one time that I had to bring back a backup it was slow and the connection dropped several times making it start over again. On the escrow side, I never could get it to link with our software

Carbonite is a very good product but Intronis is much better suited for businesses. Acronis is a very comparable product especially as it does such a good job of image level backups of machines.

Return on Investment

  • The data we store in AWS S3 is shared with lot of other AWS account users and the requester pays for the data transfer and we need not worry about the costs to move our data to other accounts.
  • The data in AWS S3 acts as a centralized storage system where in most of our web, mobile and platform API's and applications access the same data without the need to replicate it and with very low latencies.
  • Our algorithm models have been evolved and are at a better place now as the training models have been prepared on the data in S3.

  • This is a great solution for backups when a backup appliance is not necessary (or within economic range).
  • Local NAS replication can provide faster recovery of data in the event of a catastrophy.
