AWS [Backup] does what it intends on doing. AWS [Backup] is very fast, however, for that speed, you'll end up with a high bill at the end of the month. Compared to competitors, AWS [Backup] is a lot more expensive than others. However, I believe it makes it up in it's versatility - there's no company more compatible with others than AWS.

centralized backups in one simple service and place, and for those environments with a big sizes of instances.
its not appropriate when you use try to test some unique instance and you don't need a real retention period for backups. Its totally recommended for RDS environments to improve the existent backups

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.

Backing up your AWS infrastructure and services can be simplified by using AWS Backup, as it provides features to support multiple services. The backup plans can be defined using JSON files (not straightforward) and you can use tags to identify the resources that you need to back up. The main advantage is that all the backups are in one place and that you can see your backup status using AWS Backup dashboard.

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.

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.

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.
