Amazon Web Services Announces AWS Backup

Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) announced AWS Backup, a fully-managed, centralized backup service that makes it faster and simpler for customers to back up their data across AWS services and on-premises, helping customers more easily meet their business and regulatory backup compliance requirements. AWS Backup makes protecting storage volumes, databases, and file systems easier by giving customers a single service to configure and audit the AWS resources they backup, automate backup scheduling, set retention policies, and monitor recent backups and restores in one place. To get started with AWS Backup visit: aws.amazon.com/backup.

As enterprises move more and more applications to the cloud, their data can become distributed across multiple services, including databases, block storage, object storage, and file systems. While these services in AWS provide backup capabilities, customers often create custom scripts to automate scheduling, enforce retention policies, and consolidate backup activity across several services in order to better meet their business and regulatory compliance requirements. AWS Backup removes the need for custom solutions or manual processes by providing a centralized place to manage backups across AWS. With just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, customers can create a policy that defines how frequently backups are created and how long they are stored. Customers can then assign these policies to their AWS resources, and AWS Backup automatically handles the rest by automatically scheduling backup actions for the assigned AWS resources, orchestrating across AWS services, and managing their retention period.

HubStor Announces New Continuous Backup and Version Control to its Software-based Cloud Storage Platform

HubStor announced new cloud backup capabilities designed to give enterprise's better control and protection of their information. First, HubStor unveiled continuous data protection capabilities, empowering organizations to capture file changes as they happen on network-based file systems and within virtual machines. HubStor also added version-control policies to its cloud data management platform, enabling organizations to reduce demand for cloud capacity by condensing the number of file versions held in storage as data ages.

Continuous Data Protection

HubStor's continuous data protection supports monitoring of certain file system directories in order to detect new files and dynamically capture them into HubStor, either as a backup with a very short recovery point objective (RPO) or as a WORM archive for compliance.

There are various methods to monitor for changes on a file system. HubStor's current approach is agentless. HubStor may add support for other methods based on demand.

Starting with the agentless approach is the simplest because it avoids adding new software. When configuring a file system target in HubStor, enabling CDP is a simple checkbox option. By default, HubStor detects and captures any changes within 30 seconds. This change detection time can be adjusted as needed.

The flexibility of HubStor supports some file connectors having CDP enabled while perhaps others do not, allowing various workloads to be handled differently.

N2WS Extends Data Protection into Amazon S3, Saving Customers up to 40%

N2WS, a Veeam company, introduces Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) snapshot decoupling and the N2WS-enabled Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) repository. With the release of N2WS version 2.4, customers can reduce storage costs by up to 40 percent. The release of N2WS Backup & Recovery v2.4 allows Amazon Web Services (AWS) users to choose from different storage tiers and reduce costs for data being retained for longer terms.

"We are excited that N2WS is introducing snapshot decoupling into the Amazon S3 repository. This will help us to drastically reduce our storage costs," said Jamie MacDonald, head of platform and security at ZoneFox. "We manage over 700 snapshots with varying life cycling requirements, so this integration allows us to increase our backup retention period while paying less."

Enterprises can experience significant costs savings with backup lifecycle management and the ability to move snapshots to an N2WS-enabled Amazon S3 repository. Companies archiving data for compliance can also benefit from a cost-effective approach for long-term data retention on AWS. For Managed Service Providers (MSPs), N2WS v2.4 provides an opportunity to lower storage costs for their clients while improving overall levels of service delivery through effective data management.
