Backup and restore

Protect your data from physical and logical errors, such as system failure, application error, or accidental deletion.

Public sector organizations need to ensure their cloud workloads are always available. To protect against data errors, organizations need a reliable, easy-to-use backup solution that allows instant recovery. Backup and recovery solutions that integrate with Amazon Web Services (AWS) storage services offer secure, efficient, and cost-effective backup and restore capabilities. These solutions provide a way for customers to easily implement AWS best practices, while reducing costs and complexity.

N2WS case study

Founded in 1842, the University of Notre Dame is steeped in history. With 240 IT staff, 6,000 employees, and 12,000 students, the school depends heavily on its Office of Information Technologies (OIT) to keep its operational systems up and running.

Any system fail would result in weeks spent recovering data, requiring 12-hour shifts and taking focus away from more strategic projects. Therefore, the OIT decided to migrate to AWS, utilizing N2WS Cloud Protection Manager to restore Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances in seconds by recovering snapshots stored in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).

By adopting data protection from N2WS and AWS, the University of Notre Dame has paved the way for cloud-first practices, with over 80% of its IT systems in the cloud. By maintaining consistent uptime, the university protects its students from educational disruption, allows teachers to access their online materials, and saves IT staff 25% of their valuable time.
