For me, it's great. I would rate AWS Backup a nine out of ten.

My advice to someone considering this solution is to use it for its disaster recovery capabilities. I would rate it an eight out of ten. In the next release, I would like that when a backup fails, for it to try again automatically, which is doesn't do now. I would also like to have the ability to do a partial backup of the server.

We have found that in terms of cloud preference, our customers are more inclined to use AWS. This is one of the reasons that AWS Backup is popular. Overall, AWS Backup is easy to use and I find that it is a good product. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

The suitability of this solution for backup and recovery depends on the requirements. I would only recommend it for organizations that need a very simple solution. There is a lot of work that they need to do in the backup space because, at this time, it only does very basic backups. They don't appear to be prioritizing the building of a robust backup solution. It seems that they are more interested in having us work with another vendor, rather than them creating something that is already available. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

We use the public cloud deployment model. I'd recommend new users implement the solution on a UC server if they use one. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

The licensing is not straightforward. You have to pay extra.

We don't use a lot of space, only approximately 900 GB, so the price is reasonable. For standing, it's okay. We normally do a payment to SSML, and they are the ones who pay over there. It is around $100 monthly.
