New features so good we had to give them the spotlight

NEW Enhanced EBS Capabilities

With Amazon’s latest API update, N2WS can receive certain metadata from an EBS snapshot, allowing the worker instance to scale to fit the size of the snapshot —instead of the size of the volume. This is better for cost and performance.

In your snapshot report spreadsheet, you can also see the size of the change in data from one snapshot to the next.

NEW Support for Custom Tag Schema

You can now define custom tags for your policies, allowing you to integrate N2WS with your existing tag schema and automatically add resources to policies for worry-free backup.

With custom tags, you can automatically add resources to a policy and view newly added resources in the Tag Scan log.

Protecting your critical AWS workloads is only the first step

Use N2WS Backup & Recovery to achieve high availability, full visibility, and complete control of your entire data lifecycle —while reducing your costs.

N2WS Levels of AWS Optimization Chart

So much more than just AWS backup, N2WS is your key to a better cloud

With N2WS you can move your production environment to another region or account, by simply updating your policies with the new backup target. You could also quickly spin up a copy of a full production environment or just a database for rapid development.

With N2WS Resource Control you can start, stop and hibernate groups of EC2 and RDS servers on demand or on a schedule. This gives you more control over your AWS spend with easy server scheduling for non-critical servers AND the added benefit of monitoring AWS resources from within your N2WS console.

Customize data retention periods to meet compliance requirements for your business or customers. Simply define how long to keep backups, when to move them to cold storage (for longer retention), and when to delete old snapshots.

It’s that easy to manage your entire data backup lifecycle with flexible retention and storage options that support your compliance needs and keep costs low.

Back up critical data to Amazon S3 and/or Amazon Glacier —saving up to 75% on long-term storage costs. N2WS allows you to cycle EBS snapshots in S3 buckets (and Glacier/Deep Archive) and retain those backups for months (or years) —keeping you compliant and benefiting your bottom line.

When N2WS copies snapshots to Amazon S3, it launches a temporary S3 worker instance to write objects into S3. As soon as the tasks are completed, the worker instances are terminated. EBS snapshots are exported to the S3 storage tier of your choice, giving you the ability to store archive backups on AWS.

You also have the option to delete the EBS snapshots after they are copied, eliminating additional EBS costs.

You often need to protect your workloads AND data stored on Amazon S3. With N2WS you can replicate data between different S3 buckets and leverage multiple AWS account and regions for additional security.

Disasters are rare, but they do happen. At any time, you could be impacted by ransomware, user error or regional outages. Protect your AWS environment against the the inevitable by replicating volumes across multiple AWS regions and accounts —with the ability to easily restore anything in seconds.

Enjoy regular, automated backup of all your VPC settings. N2WS saves you time during the configuration process by frequently capturing your VPC setup so that when disaster strikes, you can have your data and infrastructure back in seconds.

File corruptions happen so do accidental deletions and the occasional “my inbox ate it” incident. No need to worry over that problem ever again. Because N2WS makes it easy to find and retrieve individual files and recover to the original instance in seconds.

N2WS supports file-level recovery for encrypted and unencrypted volumes and gives you the ability to recover files from snapshots (even if they’re located in another region).

Running large databases in the cloud, with thousands of transactions taking place at once, means you can’t afford downtime or data loss. N2WS Backup & Recovery gives you application consistency —meaning you don’t need to take applications offline to perform backups. N2WS simply (and automatically) “quiesces” the system to take each backup snapshot.

EBS snapshots that are in Windows or Linux servers are not application-consistent by default.

So, if you’re backing up databases running on EC2 instances while you are “online”, the restored EC2 instance or EBS volume will require you to run a “consistency check” —which can take hours and sometimes result in an unusable database.

N2WS Backup & Recovery can run a pre and post backup script in order to quiesce the relevant database produce application-consistent backups. That way, when you need to restore the database, it will be consistent and able to receive queries immediately.

Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) allows you to launch common databases including: MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, Maria DB and even Amazon Aurora. AWS does offer automatic snapshot creation for your RDS instances. However, in order to scale, you need a solution to manage several RDS instances across multiple regions and accounts.

N2WS Backup & Recovery allows you to back up and recover RDS instances from one console, with the ability to perform disaster recovery into different accounts or regions, helping you to meet uptime SLAs with ease.

As Dynamo DB is a serverless database there is no need to provision processing power or storage —this is all done by AWS in the background.

N2WS Backup & Recovery uses AWS-native technology to backup and recover NoSQL Dynamo DB tables, TTL and tags. Simply create your tables and back them up from the N2WS console to gain access to centralized reporting to meet your compliance needs.
