Overall Satisfaction with AWS Backup

We use AWS Backup to simplify backup tasks of all our workloads in AWS.
  • Easy backup tasks definition and operation.
  • Automated configuration management from API.
  • Centralized management of backup plans per account.
  • Pricing.
  • Centralized management across multiple accounts.
  • We use a lot of AWS services, so backup goals are now simpler to achieve.
  • We let auditors access the dashboard to check backup status.
Being an AWS service, AWS Backup integrates in a native way with other AWS services, providing an easy way to backup those services. Being able to create separate backup plans that meet specific business and regulatory compliance requirements provides us with capabilities to face auditing processes.
AWS support service is very good as they are very customer oriented.

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.
