We bought it as a service and deployed it. We use it to define each of our instances that we back up like the backup policy and the retention policy.
We are services vendor for AWS and this is one of the solutions that we implement for our clients. A project that I recently worked on involved a storage gateway and AWS Backup was used for backing up snapshots.
AWS is the primary platform that we use for our internal needs and we are trying to best use whatever comes with it. So far, we are happy with AWS and we have 30% or 40% of our workflows implemented there. For example, we are very big SAP users and we use SAP HANA on AWS. In the future, we expected almost everything to be in AWS, with perhaps 10% of our work in Azure. We use the AWS Backup as a service to perform native backups and recovery of files and other data. It is also our disaster recovery solution.
We primarily use the solution as a backup for snapshots so that the data will not get corrupt or lost. It secures our data for us.
