What is most valuable?

The solution is quite inexpensive, which is its most valuable feature. It's a cloud storage solution, which makes it quite flexible. If you have one terabyte today and need ten tomorrow, it's not a problem. It's really easy to configure and use.

What needs improvement?

Since the configuration and maintenance is done by the client most of the time, it's hard to know if there are any issues with the solution. I haven't heard of any. We've had issues with bandwidth in the past, and we don't know where the bottlenecks are. We're not sure if it's on the AWS side or… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Storage Gateway acts as a connection to AWS Storage. At the moment, I'm working with S3 Storage in AWS, which is really cheap. However, cloud computing can get costly. It's a bit misleading because the original offering is low, but it can escalate and get expensive.

What other advice do I have?

What do you think of AWS Storage Gateway?

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is simple. When you need especially high performance, and require the cache or a local copy of your data, you can't afford the round trip to the cloud and back each time you want to read something. So you keep your information stored locally, cached locally, and then the major repository is in the cloud.

The stability is probably the most valuable aspect of the product.

What needs improvement?

The product could be improved by making the setup process simpler. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the product for a couple of years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability has to be a given. Without that, you wouldn't use the product. It needs to be a…

What do you think of AWS Storage Gateway?

What is our primary use case?

Backup, archiving, and disaster recovery.

How has it helped my organization?

I’m not able to answer this question, due to the sensitivity of the use case. I use this product in support of a government contract.

What is most valuable?

It's an inexpensive, simple solution that is easily implemented for an existing backup environment.

What needs improvement?

Although we have not used this application long, I am not sure, in its current configuration, that we could scale this solution to meet our needs.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

AWS Storage Gateway Questions

What is AWS Storage Gateway?

AWS Storage Gateway is a hybrid storage service that enables your on-premises applications to seamlessly use AWS cloud storage. You can use the service for backup and archiving, disaster recovery, cloud bursting, storage tiering, and migration. Your applications connect to the service through a gateway appliance using standard storage protocols, such as NFS and iSCSI. The gateway connects to AWS storage services, such as Amazon S3, Amazon Glacier, and Amazon EBS, providing storage for files, volumes, and virtual tapes in AWS. The service includes a highly-optimized data transfer mechanism, with bandwidth management, automated network resilience, and efficient data transfer, along with a local cache for low-latency on-premises access to your most active data.
