Great product and great Support

  • July 29, 2020
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
It very easy to get the CPM server setup and doing basic backups to start protecting your AWS instances. Also like the new 3.0 user interface.
What do you dislike?
The user guide is not always clear on how to implement a given solution leaving me to contact support for clarification
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
The ability to have a cross account for direct S3 DR vault backups is huge. Makes the process of securing and retrieving a DR backup so much easier that the previous method we had engineered using a different vendors product
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Its easy to try plus support is great


N2WS is a great solution for backing up your AWS environment

  • July 29, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It is the only AWS backup solution that intelligently uses AWS functionality instead of trying to graft cloud functionality onto a traditional backup software.

The new interface is clean and easy to use
What do you dislike?
There have been a few problems with 3.0 that required multiple patches and upgrades but now they have it ironed out and working.

Support is only available via e-mail which makes it hard to troubleshoot the issue. The few times we have been able to get a Zoom meeting or a phone call have been much more effective.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We are able to backup our environment as well as have a great DR system in place. It makes it a lot simpler.
We are now able to leverage different S3 tiering which has lowered costs

What do you like best?
It has a relatively Simple interface. The recovery time feature is good. Flexible backup policies and scheduling which is very helpful
What do you dislike?
Ease of backup policy abstraction must be improved. Users must have access similar to IAM roles.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Ease of scheduling backups and restoring then when needed with small number of steps .
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Go for it. It's easy to use and makes your backups an easy one click job at most if not automated.

CPM - Great for SQL Servers!

  • October 04, 2016
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

CPM provides a missing link for those virtual machines that are migrated from an on-premise VM infrastructure to AWS. We have a backup requirement to provide virtual machine snapshots of SQL servers at the host level. We need these snapshots to be able to perform VSS snapshots so that there is a point in time backup with all SQL transactions committed. CPM performs this backup process seamlessly with a user friendly interface and easily configured schedules and backups. This works great and creates vm-level AWS snapshots which can then be moved to different regions, be recovered with no lost SQL transactions, and work reliably. CPM meets all of our goals!

Best backup product available

CPM Backup is great for backup and restore all AWS environments whatever small or big.
Consistent Windows backups is a must have for us and was the main factor for our decision to use CPM.
And the new file level restore feature is a cool option to only restore the data needed.
Requested features are implemented in an adequate timeline.
Also the support is very fast and capable.
Just keep on improving the solution continously!

Cloud Protection Manager is what AWS backup is missing

  • March 07, 2014
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

We have been using CPM to back up our AWS infrastructure for about 3 months and could not be happier. Snapshots are great for a few servers but become cumbersome and difficult to maintain when you are backing up over 100 instances. CPM is simple, set a schedule (or multiple schedules as we have) attach a policy to the schedule and select the backup targets, whether they are entire instances, certain volumes or even RDS instances.

We currently back up instances on a daily basis, some less used instances weekly and snapshot MongoDB volumes as often as every hour depending on the database. CPM manages all this seamlessly with ZERO daily maintenance, the only way we know it is running and protecting us is the daily “CPM Daily Summary - All OK” messages. It took some time of testing instance backups and restores as well as snapshot recoverability but 100% of the time CPM restored a perfect copy of the original. We soon got to the point where we trust CPM to do exactly what we purchased it to do, backup our AWS infrastructure and keep us safe from data loss.

CPM is the only cloud backup solution I have found that competes with traditional data center backup offerings. Using the software is familiar and intuitive if you have ever used one of the mainstream data center backup programs. Having used CPM for a few months we would be lost without it, manual (or even scripted) snapshot manipulation is tedious. Even with a snapshot of all volumes restoring a complete server is a laborious endeavor, with CPM it is as simple as pushing a button!

Final note, the few times we have needed help from support the response from N2W Software has been exceptional. We had an issue during our initial trial that was somewhat specific to our use case and support provided a patch within hours that solved our problem. Excellent tech support.
