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.

Cloud Daddy, creator of Cloud Daddy Secure Backup (CDSB), the world's most secure and easy to use AWS-native data protection solution, today announced version 1.3 of its software platform.

"Using Amazon GuardDuty on the CDSB platform underscores our commitment to providing modern-era data protection," said Cloud Daddy CEO and Founder Joe Merces.

Druva Breaks the Data Center to Cloud Barrier

Druva Inc., a global leader in cloud data protection and management, today announced the Druva Cloud Platform, Druva's Data Management-as-a-Service solution, is now available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Snowball Edge. This solution allows enterprises to freely move data between on-premises and cloud without the lock-in, complexity, and cost of legacy hardware, enabling them to speed up their infrastructure to cloud transition.

Organizations are rapidly adopting cloud infrastructure for application services. According to Druva's recent survey, data protection is a key motivator for a transition to the cloud, with 85 percent recognizing the need given the cloud's scalability, distributed architecture, and added resiliency. However, even as this transition takes place, businesses require short recovery times for mission-critical services on-premises, which forces organizations to maintain older, complicated systems for rapid recovery.

AWS Snowball Edge is a data migration and edge computing device with 100TB of capacity and support for computing tasks via built-in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and AWS Lambda function capabilities. Druva is using these advanced capabilities to facilitate a fast transition of data to and from the cloud. Enterprises get the benefits of workload mobility and the advantages of advanced cloud services like disaster recovery and replication -- improving their overall business continuity SLAs without the need for dedicated appliances or secondary storage devices. Pre-packaged with Druva's cloud data management technology and delivered directly from AWS to the customer, organizations experience a true as-a-service offering, simplifying provisioning and management, at no additional cost.
