AWS Backup

There is a cost involved with data retrieval. AWS Backup is truly that, a backup. If you need to access this data on a regular basis, there are better options out there. For long term, just in case incremental backups, AWS [Backup] checks all the boxes. Just set it up, start your backups, and rest assured your data is safe.

Spanning Backup for Salesforce

Spanning Backup for Salesforce is best for a company with data that doesn't expire. There is no retention of the data that is backed up as it completes daily incremental backups. If you only want specific time periods like a rolling 90 days, you will not be able to set this, so it may not be appropriate for this.

Support for AWS Backup is by Amazon itself so it is solid as always. If you have a business or higher level support plan you'll have no trouble getting engineers or other staff on the job to help you with whatever comes up.

Spanning Backup for Salesforce 9.0
Based on 1 answer
I would like a retention option on the data, but since this feature does not currently exist, I give it a 9. Everything has met our standards and needs and we are now freed up from the manual efforts it was taking for backing up Salesforce using the out-of-the-box features of Salesforce.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Backup

Being an AWS service, AWS Backup integrates in a native way with other AWS services, providing an easy way to backup those services. Being able to create separate backup plans that meet specific business and regulatory compliance requirements provides us with capabilities to face auditing processes.

Spanning Backup for Salesforce

Very similar in features and setup. Spanning Backup for Salesforce was more affordable. After getting set up during the trial we were able to get that trial extended as we negotiated cost and contract and continued to use the same trail as production paid version as they update the subscription, not the install.

Return on Investment

AWS Backup

  • Being able to offer live hot storage in the cloud for production environments allows me to get more people in the creative space with vast demand for speed.
  • Great integration with all my hardware, firewall and backup software was great.
  • Being able to network path my files like a native drive to my computer from the cloud made the designer not complain so much able learning new stuff.

Spanning Backup for Salesforce

  • Too expensive, $48 a month....we are spending over $15,000 a year. As we continue to scale, this cost will continue to increase
  • Not too many other negative impacts on ROI
