Overall Satisfaction with AWS Backup

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.
  • Speed
  • Integration
  • Ease of billing
  • Price
  • Long training and signup process
  • 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.
Overall because I can sell it white labeled and use my white labeled software like CloudBerry and the native backup apps on my synology NAS servers to store things in real time and do duplication and disaster recovery directly to it was game changing for my client in the advertising world they are never down now.
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.
Well Microsoft Azure is cheaper but that said AWS has more hardware and software partners so that can give a real deep integration to your AWS files. Also AWS also has a lot more support option, and is older and more mature. That said AWS isn't as easy or as pretty as Microsoft Azure is. For people just starting out I would use Microsoft Azure.
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.
