Amazon S3

I feel S3 is best used by a company looking to primarily use it as a safe and secure location to store high-availability data, leaving the additional services as an option for future expansions. Myself, and several other cloud architects I have spoken with have shared another scenario that fits S3, and other AWS services quite well, which is a startup using the free-tier with the Activate program. If done correctly, several S3 capabilities can be employed to offload tasks from underpowered virtual servers, letting the entire system become faster and more reliable.

Veeam Backup & Replication

Any environment with a large number of virtual machines would benefit from using Veeam. If you have a large number of physical servers, while Veeam does offer the ability to back them up now, it is slightly cumbersome compared to the process for virtual servers.

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Trouble free backups. Once you have it set up to do a backup you can pretty much forget it, especially since it can do multiple tests on its own of the backups to verify their integrity.
  • Application level backups. We are able to restore things at a very granular level, like individual SQL tables and AD objects like users and groups.
  • Choosing which servers to back up by vSphere tags. Once the backup is set up to back up everything with a certain tag, new servers can be added in vSphere and tagged, and they will then get backed up without ever having to go back into the Veeam console and selecting them.

Cons

Amazon S3

  • Can be a bit complex to set up with Cloud Front for CDN Performance.
  • Files names and conventions with how it integrates with Wordpress make it hard to find original files specifically since they are renamed.

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • In my most recent support case, the passing of it from one team member to another has not been great. I've had to re-explain the issue, re-run tests I've done before and re-send logs I've sent before. This is even after the Tier Two team got involved and was supposedly putting together a script that would solve the issue.

I really have no complaints about Veeam Backup & Replication. Their service has been excellent and the cost is minimal in comparison to other services I checked out. Implementation wasn't simple and the Veeam Support team was there to help each step of the way.

Overall we have been very pleased with the solution for our virtual infrastructure. I would not give it 10 because I am not really happy with the troubles we get into while backing up our physical servers directly.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon S3

I haven't been personally involved in the decision to use S3, but in comparison to Dropbox or Google Drive, this offers a less robust UI to modify things, while being a cheaper storage mechanism over the rest.

Veeam Backup & Replication

Our other backup software that we use is StorageCraft ShadowProtect. They are both image based backups, both have the ability to do virtual recovery or bare metal restores. Both can mount backups and pull out data easily. Where ShadowProtect shines over Veeam is the resiliency of the backup chain. We're able to store backups for up to a year and be able to recover back that far if we need to. We've had to design different backup jobs that are set at different intervals to be able to store that same long-term archive of data.However, Veeam is MUCH easier on the restoration front. It has the built-in Veeam Explorers, and the Instant-VM recovery is superior because it's much simpler and it uses the CPU/RAM of a VM host instead of the server running the recovery.

Return on Investment

Amazon S3

  • Regarding the websites, it has been a great ROI we have them all in one location which makes it easy to get too and fast in case of a failure and we need to quickly rebuild the site.
  • Using it for our BLOB's on our escrow side of the house the ROI is based on being able to have it in a secure location which is easy to get too and fast when the application needs to access it to build a file.

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • We've utilized recovery from some hardware failures a few times and it's worked great
  • Works even when a Domain controller has failed
  • Great sureback solution allows lab-based testing of updates on a replica server without affecting production environment... this has saved me a ton on not needing a second lab setup
