Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup for AWS

We are still in the testing phase and understanding the performance and usability. Once we identified it, we may try it in one of our production workloads. We are trying a few use cases such as backing up application data that are more than 18 months and archival of statement letters. We are in the state of migration of our on-prem storage to the cloud, so this could be really helpful if it's on the production system.

Pros

  • Archive to Amazon S3 Glacier.
  • Encryption
  • Policy-based automation.

Cons

  • Security addons.
  • Monitoring and notification.
  • Cost optimization.
  • Less manual work.
  • Security such as encrypted data.
  • Fast restore.
Availability for our use case is not very high, so I gave this rating. We require the data occasionally for auditing purposes, and I believe this product will help to achieve it. As I said earlier, we are in the dev stage, and it looks promising so far. Granular recoveries are a good feature that might be helpful for us in other use cases.
We used S3 storage before for other use cases which are running in production load, and we are experimenting with other products such as Veeam. It gives more features that will be helpful like no need extra system or application to automate the process. We expect many features in the future.

Did implementation of Veeam Backup for AWS go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Veeam Backup for AWS again?

Yes

Automated backups with extra features help in taking backup of data and help to manage the data. Use cases such as application data that is no longer frequently used can be moved through this product seamlessly and securely. It helps to determine the cost but not helping much to determine how to reduce the cost, such as cost optimization.
