The whole organization uses AWS Backup to ensure our important files are kept safe. It [has] saved my butt a few times with a few poorly chosen delete commands. Our cloud providers offers a backup solution but they don't guarantee the location of the data. A fire at their data center could result in the loss of our data, so we chose AWS for our offsite solution.

We also suffered a complete loss of data at our cloud providers and despite their best attempts to get the files back, we had to rely on our backups at AWS to get our services back up and running.

We've also implemented AWS [Backup] for a few of our customers looking for offsite backups.

AWS Backup is used as the main backup solution for the core of our system (which is based on AWS infrastructure). AWS Backup is used mainly to back up our servers--and some important data--on regularly scheduled backups. This solution enables us to centralize and automate the backup of all of our AWS services (EBS volumes, EFS file systems, and databases).

Pricy, but worth it

We used AWS [Backup] as a backup for each server we have. Our data retention policies are fairly strong, and we keep about 3 months of backups in our services. AWS [Backup] was always some of the fastest and most efficient storage I've ever received. We were able to store lots and lots of backups with no problems. Never had an issue uploading either.

Basically we use AWS Backup to complete the cycle of lifetime backups, and also for centraliz[ing] those backups in one place. In first place we used just AMI backups, but when AWS release this service was amazing for us, because we can tag all resource that we want backup for.

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.

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.
