  • The AWS Storage Gateway can be deployed very quickly. We required only a couple of hours to get it setup and was able to present it to the backup server as a media manager and VTL drives.
  • The provisioning of the virtual tapes was also pretty easy to setup. Being able to utilize Glazier storage provided a great ROI.
  • The documentation AWS provides is very user friendly, allowing us to set up the AWS Storage Gateway the correct way.
  • There was a limitation on the throughput you were able to push thru the AWS Gateway, increasing the backup time negatively impacting the performance of the system being backed up.
  • The inability to have de-duplication required more bandwidth that's what we anticipated decreasing the ROI. The increased egress charges were less than desired.
  • It was somewhat cumbersome when ejecting and retrieving back the virtual tapes. The process and documentation explaining how that piece of the AWS Gateway could have been more clearer.

  • Uploads files securely
  • Provides access to selected individuals
  • Works well for a sole trader like myself without associated high costs
  • Ease of finding useful helpful tips on using AWS
  • Dumbing down of the technical jargon on the site
  • Short sharp to the point step videos - answering some common questions
  • Remembering not everyone is an IT person - could be more user friendly

  • It is good for "forever" solutions for backing up data.
  • It is good for S3 attachments to traditional servers.
  • It is relatively easy to manage, once configured.
  • It is fairly difficult to get initially configured (as with most things AWS).
  • It is not always speedy.
  • Relative location becomes important for speed of consistent usage.
