Centralized Backup - AWS 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, such as Amazon EBS volumes, Amazon RDS databases, Amazon DynamoDB tables, Amazon EFS file systems, and AWS Storage Gateway volumes. AWS Backup automates and consolidates backup tasks previously performed service-by-service, removing the need to create custom scripts and manual processes. AWS Backup provides a fully managed, policy-based backup solution, simplifying your backup management, enabling you to meet your business and regulatory backup compliance requirements.
Object Storage - Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)
Amazon S3 is an object storage service that stores data from anywhere – web sites and mobile apps, corporate applications, and data from IoT sensors or devices. It 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.
Amazon S3 Glacier is a secure, durable, and low-cost storage class of S3 for data archiving and long-term backup. Customers can store large or small amounts of data for as little as $0.004 per gigabyte per month. The S3 Glacier storage class is ideal for archives where data is regularly retrieved and some of the data may be needed in minutes. S3 Glacier Deep Archive is a new Amazon S3 storage class that provides secure and durable object storage for long-term retention of data that is accessed once or twice in a year. From just $0.00099 per GB-month (less than one-tenth of one cent, or about $1 per TB-month), S3 Glacier Deep Archive offers the lowest cost storage in the cloud, at prices lower than storing and maintaining data in on-premises magnetic tape libraries or archiving data off-site.
Hybrid Storage - AWS Storage Gateway
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.
Block Storage - Amazon Elastic Block Storage (Amazon EBS)
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 Elastic File Service (Amazon EFS)
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.
