  • Popular Use Cases

The promise of the cloud, delivered...

Built for AWS, we provide the elegant orchestration layer you need to seamlessly manage thousands of snapshots, recover TBs of data in minutes, reduce storage costs, and so much more.

Automatically archive EBS snapshots to S3

Back up critical data to Amazon S3 —saving up to 60% on long-term storage costs. N2WS allows you to cycle EBS snapshots in S3 buckets and retain those backups for months (or years) —keeping you compliant and benefitting 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 into a proprietary .VBK format, giving you the ability to restore backups to AWS or move offsite. Pretty cool, right?

Start and stop servers with our AWS Resource Control

Cloud waste is on the rise and idle servers are a huge part of the problem (like $8 billion huge). 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.

Migrate a production environment:

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 duplicate a production environment to create a staging or dev environment for rapid iteration.

Restore a single file:

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.

Stay audit-proof with customizable retention periods

Customize data retention periods to meet compliance requirements for your business and for your customers’ (if you’re managing services for them). 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.
