Data Durability

Protect backups with 99.999999999% data durability. Copies of all data uploaded to Amazon S3 and Amazon S3 Glacier are created and stored across at least three devices in a single AWS Region.

Services that AWS Backup & Restore offers

Centralized Backup

AWS Backup is a fully managed backup service that makes it easy to centralize and automate the back up of data across AWS services in the cloud as well as on premises using the AWS Storage Gateway. Using AWS Backup, you can centrally configure backup policies and monitor backup activity for AWS resources.

Hybrid Storage

AWS Storage Gateway is a hybrid storage service that enables on-premises applications to seamlessly connect to AWS storage services Amazon S3, Amazon S3 Glacier, and Amazon EBS. You can use the service to transfer data into the cloud with common storage interfaces, such as NFS and iSCSI. The service supports three different data-transfer modes so you can move files into Amazon S3 as objects, block storage volumes into Amazon EBS, and tape backups into Amazon S3 and Amazon S3 Glacier.

Object Storage

Amazon S3 is designed to provide customers with the flexibility to tier data for cost optimization and the control to directly manage data access. Amazon S3 is the only cloud storage service with query-in-place functionality, allowing you to run analytics directly on your data at rest. The service also supports S3 Transfer Acceleration built to enable fast, easy, and secure data transfers over long distances

Block Storage

Amazon EBS provides persistent block storage volumes for use with Amazon EC2 instances. Each volume is automatically replicated to protect from component failure. With Amazon EBS, customers can scale usage up or down within minutes and only pay for what is provisioned. The service also supports a snapshot feature that lets customers preserve and backup Amazon EBS volumes to be reinstatiated for use with Amazon EC2.

File Storage

Amazon EFS provides scalable file storage. When mounted on Amazon EC2 instances, an Amazon EFS file system provides a standard file system interface and enables integration of Amazon EFS with existing applications. Multiple Amazon EC2 instances can access an Amazon EFS file system — serving as a common data source for workloads and applications. Amazon EFS has a built-in backup feature that automatically creates backups of the file system on a customer-defined schedule.

Data Transfer

AWS Kinesis Firehose is a fully managed service that captures, transforms, encrypts, and loads streaming data into AWS for use with Amazon S3, Amazon Redshift, Amazon Elasticsearch Services, and Splunk. It is designed to enable near real-time analytics with existing business intelligence tools and dashboards you’re already using today.

AWS Migration Hub provides a single location to track the progress of application migrations across multiple AWS and partner solutions. The AWS Migration Hub allows you to use the tools that best fit your needs, while providing visibility into the status of migrations across your portfolio of applications. There is no additional cost for using AWS Migration Hub and you only pay for the cost of the individual migration tools you use and any resources being consumed on AWS.

AWS Database Migration Service helps you transfer databases to AWS quickly and securely. The source database remains fully operational during the migration, minimizing downtime to applications that rely on that database. The service can transfer data to and from the most widely-used commercial and open-source databases.

Networking

Amazon CloudFront is a global content delivery network (CDN) service that securely delivers data, videos, applications, and APIs to your viewers with low latency and high-transfer speeds. You can get started with CloudFront in minutes using APIs, the AWS Management Console, AWS CloudFormation, CLIs, and SDKs. Amazon CloudFront offers a simple, pay-as-you-go pricing model with no upfront fees or long-term contracts.

Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) products automatically distribute incoming application traffic across multiple targets, such as Amazon EC2 instances, containers, and IP addresses. The AWS ELB portfolio includes three types of load balancers — Application Load Balancer, Network Load Balancer, and Class Load Balancer. All three support automatic scaling and are protected by security protocols so that your applications are fault tolerant.

Elastic Load Balancing

Amazon Route 53 is a cloud Domain Name System (DNS) web service that is designed to give developers and businesses a reliable way to route end users to Internet applications. The service works by translating urls into numeric IP addresses and connecting user requests to infrastructure running in AWS.

Global Infrastructure

The AWS Cloud Infrastructure is built around Regions and Availability Zones (AZ). An AWS Region is a physical location where there are multiple AZs. AZs consist of one or more discrete data centers. AWS operates AZs in mulitple geographic Regions around the world, with current plans to expand to more areas where our customers operate.

AWS Global Infrastructure

Protecting data is AWS' number one priority and our global infrastructure is designed and managed according to security best practices, as well as a variety of compliance standards. AWS customers also have access to governance-focused, audit-friendly services to meet compliance and audit requirements.
