Overall Satisfaction with AWS Backup

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.
  • tag select
  • backup voults
  • Backup plans
  • add more services to support aws backups
  • optimized the total size of backups (used one)
  • try to make previews of backups
  • decrease recovery times
  • securely our environments daily and monthly
  • reduce the investment on AMI and S3 backups
because its easy to startup on it and also so easy to use, and again its just a one single place for control, create and recover your instances and environments. Great product overall and a must to have in your infrastructure.
Also we recommend try it and even daily or monthly create a recovery test environment to check the all process in action.

Would you buy AWS Backup again?

Yes

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
