We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The replication in the recovery region is the most valuable feature."
"The most valuable features we have found are the flexibility in the services offered."
"When I was using an on-premises backup, there was an external hard drive or something like that. I had a backup server, but I had a few problems related to transfer when I had to restore something that I have deleted. I had to wait for after-office hours to do something like that, but now I just have to send a mail. Within one hour, I have my restored file."
"The solution has an effective overwrite feature."
"The most valuable feature is the daily incremental site backup."
"The most valuable feature is its ease of use."
"The most valuable features are the ease of administration and the ease of configuration."
"The most valuable feature is that it is simple to use."
"It's a good solution. It's pretty stable."
"It's very comprehensive. It's one of the first brands to appear in its field."
"Only the price could be improved."
"The AWS Backup backend reporting is a major area that needs improvement. We would be very excited if we can see some reporting, such as trends. We do understand that there are reports available for S3 Bucket, in which the AWS backend stores the data. However, if we can receive holistic reporting, then it would be very helpful for us."
"One of the limitations of AWS Backup is that it only does file-based copying."
"The notifications on the backup and on the mobile app could be more useful. If they could arrange notes or notifications properly and offer services for managing it in our region, it would be helpful for us."
"This backup tool does the full backup of the entire snapshot server. I would like to have the option to not do the full server backup."
"If AWS Backup were a hybrid solution that also supported on-premises backups then it would be very helpful, especially if you are doing a migration to the cloud."
"The usability of the solution isn't the best."
"Licensing has been a struggle. It went from bronze, silver to gold. Licensing needs more sophistication. It has features that are sold as separate add-ons."
"Technical support can be improved."
"In the future, we would like to see support for virtualized machines."
"We don't use a lot of space, only approximately 900 GB, so the price is reasonable. For standing, it's okay. We normally do a payment to SSML, and they are the ones who pay over there. It is around $100 monthly."
"There is a lot of flexibility with the services and pricing. The price is reasonable when compared to other products. This is very good for us."
"This solution is not cheap and not expensive but priced in the mid-range."
