What do you think about Amazon's Storage Gateway for data backup?
mstrauss 2 years ago
This week saw release of the beta version of Amazon's Storage Gateway, which automatically mirrors local data and backs it up in Amazon's could. Storage Gateway is downloaded "in the form of a VMware ESXi virtual machine" and then customers allocate onsite disks to the gateway, and copies of data is uploaded to the cloud while it also stays on premises. It seems that this is one of the easiest methods to ensure data backup, although I'm not sure if the upload to Amazon occurs in real time or on a schedule. Has anyone had any experience with Storage Gateway yet? Is there comparable software out there that does something like this already?
