Amazon S3

S3 is one of those few solutions that work for everyone at any range. From small startups to corporate giants, S3 has something to offer all businesses with its infinite scalability and absolutely brilliant pay structure. Coming from the personal experience of having experienced both the small and big company aspect, S3 is your best bet for any and all cloud storage needs.

Mozy

Mozy Pro is a great fit, especially for small businesses that don't want to pursue a very large number of licenses, and don't have many TB of data to backup. The price per user is reasonable, and well within the budget of smaller businesses needing workstation backup solutions. For larger enterprises, there are other products that provide a lot more storage and better performance. We found Code42's product to be better for larger data backup needs.

Pros

  • Nearly every web framework now has integrations with the service as an easy plug-and-play storage solution.
  • General integration is so good there are tons of third-party tools like Transmit (for mac) you can mount S3 as a remote disk for easy access, and even Amazon's own web portal for using S3 has gotten quite good.
  • It's incredibly easy to offload all the expensive bandwidth operations for your typical website or app to S3, and, assuming your services are not yet HTTP2, you even get the benefits of sharding.

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.

  • The pricing structure is dated and not competitive.
  • Somewhat confusing user interface that has caused issues for the typical end user.

For the clients we have using this service, we fully plan to renew the subscription. However, that may change as our client's business grows and they have a need to add visualization and other server types to their environment

Alternatives Considered

S3 is much cheaper than the alternatives. And it's very easy to set up the billing.

I haven't used any other products in the cloud backup market. We chose Mozy because at the time they had the most robust central management console. Pricing with Mozy was going to be cheaper in the long run. Brand recognition also had something to do with it.

Return on Investment

  • The storage costs are extremely low compared to storage provided by cloud backup vendors, most of which are just reselling Amazon S3.
  • This has allowed us to be more competitive in the corporate backup market.

  • Mozy has lead to a negative impact in employee efficiency. This is due to the amount of time spent troubleshooting issues.
  • Our customer service to our subsidiary has lacked due to the inability to capture a backup every day.
