AWS Backup is being used by my project as a method to make regularly scheduled backups of data from various services. It is being used just by the project at this point but it addresses the business problem of disaster recovery and having the capability to restore data that was deleted by accident that may be critical or customer facing.
AWS Backup is great for data backup because it solves a lot of data integrity and disaster recovery issues as a centralized backup tool on the Amazon platform. This is really only good if you use AWS as your main infrastructure organization. It is less appropriate in cases where you have data from other systems not covered by AWS.

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.
We use AWS Backup to simplify backup tasks of all our workloads in AWS.
Backing up cloud workloads can be simplified by using AWS Backup as it provides features to support multiple services. Backup plans can be defined easily by json files and it's great to use tags to identify the resources to be backed up. The dashboard helps a lot with information to audit backup and restore activity.

It was primarily being used as our DB backups across the whole organization. We had daily backups as well as rollups of weekly and monthly backups. We could pull application state at any one of those given times.
Any scenario where you need to make backups, this is the product for you. It beats the use of old tape drives.

I've never had to use their support because documentation has been sufficient.
We use AWS Backup for hot backups to store our clients' active projects so they have an active cloud based NAS for their most important doc, emails, and creative projects.
When dealing with all three types of cloud back ups - AWS is almost the only provider where you can get deep freeze, cold and hot cloud storage from only one provider and have them all integrated between one another. Also they have a large list of third party integrations for programs like CloudBerry and the like to make it even easier.

With a HUGE online help base, and very knowledgeable and fast support teams. They also have reps on the Spiceworks forums actively helping members in real time and support a very large VAR and MSP / Re seller Networking that are all trained and hyper knowledgeable in the solutions offered by AWS.
