    Hey all. Is anyone backing up AWS S3 buckets? How is that going for you? What was your reasoning to decide S3 backups were needed versus using native versioning and replication?

    Hi Brianv

    In a nutshell CommVault as a Data Management platform, provides an end-to-end eco-system with different feature sets to manage on-prem and Cloud based Backup (allowing a single pane of management). 

    On top of the above, there are various reason based on different organizational requirement that leads to end-users wanting to move to using AWS S3 as a Storage Target, this might include:

    • Better utilization of Deduplication 
    • Flexibility in mixed-deployment (on-prem and Cloud)
    • Orchestration, allow testing of pre-production environment in DR Test environment prior to moving to Production (live-sync)
    • Long-term repository of Archive Data, without saturating on-prem resources
    • and etc
    Generally it is down to the organizations needs and requirement, which dictate the use of AWS S3 as a Cloud Library. If CommVault is already deployed in the environment it would be a natural choice to also utilize CommVault to manage the end-to-end backup infrastructure allowing overall ease of management. 
    Hopefully that helps

    Thanks, Winston. To clarify a bit… I was asking about backing up data within S3 buckets, not using S3 as a disk library.
