Backup and Storage
Developers and businesses around the globe rely on Amazon Web Services (AWS) for block storage, file storage, backup, archive, and disaster recovery.
Services for every cloud storage need.
Object Storage – Amazon S3 is infinitely scalable and highly durable storage.
Block Storage – Amazon EBS provides block level storage volumes for Amazon EC2.
Archive Storage – Amazon Glacier is an extremely low-cost storage service that provides secure and durable storage for data archiving and backup.
Cloud Gateway Storage – AWS Storage Gateway connects your on-premises IT environment with the AWS cloud.
Pay only for what you use.
Unlike Physical storage, which requires capacity planning, purchasing capacity in advance, and large up-front payments, AWS storage services offer pay-as-you-go pricing. So you pay only for the data that you store, at the storage tier you select. Unlimited scalability. No excess capacity. No up-front costs. All for less than it costs to operate on-premises systems.
Premium security spec. Non-premium prices.
AWS security measures, certifications, accreditations, and features meet the security criteria set out by some of the most discerning and security conscious customers in large enterprise as well as governmental agencies—and AWS security is available at no extra cost, regardless of customer size or amount of money that a customer spends with AWS.
Many ways to get your data in and out.
AWS supports several methods for loading and retrieving data, including: the public Internet; a direct network connection with AWS Direct Connect; the AWS Import/Export service where we will load data from and to physical media; and for backups of application data, the AWS Storage Gateway automatically backs up data to AWS.
You control where your data is.
Nobody likes having their data relocated to unknown destinations. With AWS, you can choose the AWS Region where your data resides to optimize latency, minimize costs, or address regulatory requirements. Objects stored in a Region never leave that Region unless you transfer it out.
Effortless data replication.
Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier automatically replicate data across multiple data centers in order to provide higher durability and designed to provide 99.999999999% durability. That’s data durability the easy way.
A storage service for every tier.
AWS storage services provide a choice of storage options that allow you to tier your data. Amazon S3 provides primary object storage with 11 nines of durability, Amazon S3 RRS offers secondary storage and Amazon Glacier cold archival. For block storage, choose your performance level with Provisioned IOPS storage for Amazon RDS or Amazon EBS for Amazon EC2.
Archive cold data.
Companies typically overpay for data archiving. Amazon Glacier is an extremely low-cost storage service that provides secure and durable storage for data archiving and backup. With Amazon Glacier, customers can reliably store large or small amounts of data for as little as $0.01 per gigabyte per month.
Easily back up application data to the AWS Cloud.
For remote-office and small-office application data, AWS Storage Gateway enables you to upload securely to the AWS Cloud for cost-effective backup, file share, and rapid disaster recovery. It’s an easier way to protect application data with seamless and secure backups to AWS storage.
