Restoring data is one of the pillars Sungard Availability Services was built on. In fact, we have been storing, securing, and recovering our customers’ data for more than 35 years. So, when we started working on the AWS platform and saw their out-of-the-box snapshot functionality, we knew we had the expertise to improve it. Today, we are pleased to announce that Enhanced Snapshots has been released on the AWS Marketplace, delivering significant cost savings, efficiency in storage by using compression and deduplication, automated scheduling, and increased IT efficiencies.
Enhanced Snapshots for Enhanced Benefits
Enhanced Snapshots uses the standard AWS service features. Its snapshots are taken for volumes and optionally tagged with details about the data. Enhanced Snapshots is a cost-effective solution offered as open source software, and bundles the powerful compression and deduplication SDFS solution from OpenDedup. The combination of the automated facilities and the low-cost backup facilities helps to reduce costs incurred for labor and AWS resources.
Through Enhanced Snapshots, you can take advantage of:
- Better control of AWS resources
- Fastest possible restore time
- Significant cost reduction
- Storage space savings of 40% to 90%
- Reduced labor costs
