Internet Storage using Amazon S3

Use Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) to backup, archive, and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the Internet. Gain access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage architecture that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites. And, it is backed by Amazon´s 99.9% service level agreement. Amanda Enterprise’s Amazon S3 Storage Option is the only Solution today that offers online data backup using cloud computing.

Automated Data Retention and Disposition Policy

Ever-expanding government regulations such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley put an incredible amount of pressure on businesses to comply with data security, retention, and retrieval requirements. Amanda Enterprise allows you to automate your data retention and disposition policy, setting the stage for effective compliance management and e-discovery.

Holding Disks

Backups are staged to one or more “holding disks”, allowing later migration to tape or other media. Multiple clients can be backed simultaneously to the same holding disk to improve performance and reduce the total backup time.

Technical Support

Choose from three levels of support, complete with knowledge base access, email and phone support, case management, and software enhancement updates.
