AWS Backup customers

  • Supercell

    Supercell is a game company based in Helsinki, Finland, with offices in San Francisco, Seoul and Shanghai. Since our launch in 2010, we've brought five games to the global market – Hay Day, Clash of Clans, Boom Beach, Clash Royale and Brawl Stars. Our dream is to create great games that as many people as possible play for years and that are remembered forever.

    The main challenge in Supercell is the large scale of things… This also means that for the backup solution, we need to be able to create the backups simultaneously from all of the clusters to reduce the inconsistency. At the same time, we want to create the backup so that there is no performance impact for the players.

  • Liberty Mutual Insurance

    Since 1912, we've grown into the fifth largest global property and casualty insurer based on 2022 gross written premium. We also rank 86 on the Fortune 100 list of largest corporations in the US based on 2022 revenue. ​At Liberty Mutual Insurance we work hard every day to support our customers and our people, so they can protect their families, build their businesses and invest in their futures.

    App teams are much happier, much higher adoption of backups. They don't have to do a whole lot now. All they got to do is tag. We have much better coverage now for disaster recovery and security requirements… And it greatly simplified the process for us because now it's all native AWS stuff. We don't need to worry about dealing with third parties or licensing of other tools or whatever else.

  • Fannie Mae

    Since 1938, Fannie Mae has provided a reliable source of affordable mortgage financing across the country. We support renters, homebuyers, and homeowners by creating solutions that expand access to affordable housing opportunities. We do not originate loans or lend money directly to borrowers. Instead, we acquire mortgage loans made by lenders and then issue guaranteed mortgage-backed securities (MBS) backed by those loans that attract investors. In 2022, Fannie Mae enabled the financing of approximately 2.6 million home purchases, refinancing, and rental units.

    One thing that every business continuity framework could use is a source of truth for data that we can go back to, something that's immune to corruption or tampering, that we know will always be pristine. AWS Backup Vault Lock provides that as an optional feature on AWS Backup Vault. Anything you put in that vault is going to be immutable for the duration of that retention period. You can't change it, Amazon can't change it.
