Today many organizations are facing significant challenges with exponential data growth. Machine learning and analytics give data more valuable than ever before. The need and the usage is continuously increasing and, organizations that are used to the traditional on-premises backup infrastructure, such as disk and tape, are running out of space, and adding more such storage is getting costlier. Organizations are also looking forward to upgrading their backup strategy while lowering their backup costs. Their tape backups are becoming unmanageable and more expensive to store offsite. Customers want to replace on-premises tape and disk archive infrastructure with solutions that provide enhanced data durability, almost an immediate data retrieval time, better security and compliance, and greater data accessibility for advanced analytics and business intelligence.

Organizations generally have two main types of backups: operational and long-term retention backups. Operational backups are most used for restoring purposes. These can be the latest 7, 15, or 30 days of backups depending on an organization’s policies. Rarely are backups used for normal operational restores beyond 30-60 days. However, either due to organizational policies or compliance requirements, many customers need to maintain backups for a much longer period. Backups that go beyond the operational window are typically referred to as long-term retention.

Solution

Velocis provides industry-leading consulting and technology services on top of Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) across a variety of use cases, including but not limited to backup and restore, long-term retention and archive, primary storage, etc. Velocis helps organizations in architecting, designing, and deploying all the resources needed to implement Data Backup & Archiving Solutions to meet their data storage needs in a cost-effective way.

Amazon S3 Glacier storage classes (one of the many different storage classes for Amazon S3) are purpose-built for data archiving, providing organizations with the highest performance, maximum retrieval flexibility, and the lowest cost archive storage in the cloud. All S3 Glacier storage classes provide virtually unlimited scalability and are designed for 99.999999999% (11 nines) of data durability. The S3 Glacier storage classes deliver options for the fastest access to the organization’s archive data and the lowest-cost archive storage in the cloud. Amazon S3 Glacier enables customers to offload the administrative burdens of operating and scaling storage to AWS, so they don't have to worry about capacity planning, hardware provisioning, data replication, hardware failure detection, and recovery, or time-consuming hardware migrations.

Benefits

  • Retrievals as quick as milliseconds
  • Unmatched durability and scalability
  • Most comprehensive security and compliance capabilities
  • Cost Effective
  • Consistent across your data lifecycle

Use Cases

  • Compliance archival – Businesses related to heavily regulated industries such as financial services, healthcare, and public sector organizations require customers to retain data for longer periods of time for business compliance and regulatory purposes.
  • Media asset preservation - Customers can store infrequently accessed digital media assets in highly durable and massively scalable storage solutions at very low costs.
  • Enterprise backups - Customers can significantly reduce the cost of their offsite backups by migrating off of tape libraries and storage appliances, moving data into AWS. AWS archive solutions have no upfront costs, eliminate maintenance costs, and provide significantly faster access when archived data is needed.
  • Disaster recovery - Customers can replicate their coldest data to a secondary Region at a very low cost with just the click of a button using AWS archival storage solutions and meet disaster recovery needs

To help customer, Velocis keeps running several programs (with rich mix of educational content) including live webinars, whitepapers, proof-of-concept offers, newsletters, and more throughout the duration of the year. Please feel free to reach out to your account manager or write us at contact.us@velocis.in to learn on how to use AWS Storage Services optimally and efficiently leveraging its various use cases.
