    N2WS - Right Choice for AWS Backups

N2WS for the win

A solid platform that gives lots of flexibility to the customer for their DRAS and backup solution. I appreciate N2WS for include a resource control group to control EC start/stop. This helps the business financially. I appreciate the scheduling option and the automated restore option to test backups. The only criticism is lack of training in the platform. The video's exist, but it would be helpful to have quarterly business reviews to make sure all customers understand the platform and fully understand how to automate backups.


Super Easy Backup Solution

N2WS is the simplest and most easy to use Backup Solution for AWS. Once configured it does a pretty good job. Even upgrades are super easy.


Backup and Recovery Ease

As someone once said, "Backups are's the recovery that's the real test." They are exactly right. I got my first chance to do a Microsoft Windows server recovery (instance root restore) using the CPM product. The process really was quite straightforward and took only a minute to restore the instance back to a working condition. Would highly recommend giving the product a trial.


Done and done, well mostly..

The Cloud Protection Manager product provides an easy to use interface that enables you to backup and restore out of the box.

After spinning up our AWS infrastructure it became quite clear that managing snapshots for multiple volumes with many instances was not going to be something that would happen easily. We started off with some basic scripting to create nightly snaps that were scheduled via cron and another script that would remove the old snaps after X days. The largest issue came when we needed to restore a full instance and all of its respective volumes. In a disaster situation the number of steps needed to manually recover an instance combined with multiple instances immediately had us searching for a solution.

We had the requirement for the solution to be hosted in our infrastructure. We were not interested in leveraging a SaaS provider that had our credentials and remotely accessed the system. We came across CPM and immediately started a trial. Out of the box we were backing up and restoring systems without any issue. We have used the backups several times to help replicate PROD issues by restoring a full instance into a different VPC and Subnet with just a few click of the mouse.

The developers and support have been very responsive to our questions and have offered several suggestion to assist with our deployment. We have now converted to the Advanced edition and are quite happy with the speed at which we were able to get backups up and running with very little effort on our part.

Why not 5 stars? The major issue that we have is relating to the way scripts are handled to deal with databases and setting them into and out of hot backup mode. The functionality is there to do this but in a large enterprise with many DB servers the current solution does not scale well in our opinion. We are working around it with some external automation but we hope that this changes in the future. IN addition the ability to restore across AWS accounts is missing. This is important to us as we have multiple accounts to separate some functions and occasionally need to put a backup of a system in the other account. Currently we have to do this manually, again we hope that this is supported in the future.
