Greetings friends, during the AWS Re:Invent, Veeam announced its free version for workload protection in AWS, Veeam Backup for AWS, now available in the AWS Marketplace.
What is Veeam Backup for AWS Free Edition?
Veeam Backup for AWS Free Edition is a native AWS EC2 workload protection solution. This means that Veeam performs snapshots of the EBS volumes of each instance and allows us to later launch a copy to an Object Storage repository, S3, for much longer retention.
Veeam Backup for AWS Free Edition provides unlimited restores of any Veeam Backup for AWS backup and allows backups of up to 10 EC2 instances. Veeam Backup for AWS offers cost-effective, secure, cloud-native AWS backup and recovery of Amazon EC2 instances. Easily recover any data loss scenario in the cloud, whether it’s disruptions, accidental deletion, malware and more, in minutes.
Ease of use is built-in with turnkey deployment through the AWS Marketplace and a simple web-based management user interface. Powerful recovery capabilities are offered through full file-level recovery for native snapshots and Veeam backups, cross-regional and cross-account recovery, and the ability to restore AWS backups to any Veeam-compatible environment.
An industry-leading built-in backup cost estimation tool provides greater cost controls, optimizing protection and retention while avoiding costly misconfigurations.
