Backup to Amazon S3

Zmanda’s mission is to ensure that our customers can always recover their data while making backup simple, secure and cost-effective. Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) fits perfectly with this mission.

Amanda Backup Archiving

In addition to traditional backup to disk and tape, Amanda Enterprise can now use Amazon S3 to backup, archive and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the Internet. Amanda Enterprise customers now get access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites.

  • Layered security & bandwidth optimization
  • Retrieve data anytime, anywhere. Faster than restoring from offsite tape storage
  • Cost effective “pay as you go”

The intuitive browser-based Zmanda Management Console (ZMC) makes it very easy to configure Amazon S3 as a target for backup and archiving. After initial configuration, Amanda Enterprise securely sends a copy of your data for safe and secure storage on Amazon S3.

EUDPD Compliant

EUDPD Compliant: With Amanda Enterprise 3.0, this option is compliant with the EU Data Protection Directive. You can choose to constrain your backup data to go to Amazon’s data centers within the EU boundaries.

Tape Backup vs. Amazon S3

In comparison to traditional storing of tapes off-site for disaster recovery, the Amazon S3 provides streamlined recovery process with minimal downtime for your business.
