N2WS Expands Cost Optimization for Amazon Web Services with Amazon EC2 Resource Scheduling

  • Organizations can start, stop and hibernate groups of Amazon EC2 or
    Amazon RDS instances on-demand or based on a schedule using the new
    N2WS Resource Control.
  • New optimization for Amazon EBS snapshots extends costs savings to
    more than 60 percent for backups stored greater than two years.
  • Support for new AWS GovCloud (US-East) Region allows Public Sector
    organizations with cross-region disaster recovery.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/AWS?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#AWSlt;/agt;–N2WS, a Veeam® company, and
provider of cloud-native backup and recovery solutions for data and
applications on Amazon Web Services (AWS), today announced the
availability of N2WS Backup & Recovery 2.5
(v2.5), which introduces Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and
Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) resource management and
control. Using the new N2WS Resource Control, organizations can lower
costs by stopping or hibernating groups of Amazon EC2 and Amazon RDS
resources on-demand or automatically, based on a pre-determined schedule.

“A good portion of our internal AWS bill is dedicated to Amazon EC2
compute resources, as much as 60 percent every month. A lot of these
resources are not being used all the time,” explains Uri Wolloch, CTO at
N2WS. “Being able to simply power on or off groups of Amazon EC2 and
Amazon RDS resources with a simple mouse click is just like shutting the
lights off when you leave the room or keeping your refrigerator door
closed; it reduces waste and saves a huge amount of money if put into
regular practice.”

N2WS Backup & Recovery v2.5 further optimizes the process for cycling
Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) snapshots into the N2WS Amazon
Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) repository, extending costs saving to
more than 60% for backups stored greater than 2 years. N2WS v2.5 also
supports two new AWS Regions: AWS Europe (Stockholm) Region and the new
AWS GovCloud (US-East) Region.

For public sector organization leveraging the AWS GovCloud (US-East or
US-West) Regions, N2WS v2.5 offers automated cross-region disaster
recovery between the two AWS Regions. This allows AWS GovCloud (US)
users to orchestrate near instant recovery and disaster recovery, while
keeping data and workloads in approved data centers – ensuring that
workloads remain available in the event of a regional issue.

New updates and enhancements now available as part of N2WS Backup &
Recovery v2.5 include:

  • Management of data storage and server instances from one simple
    console using N2WS Resource Control
  • Optimization enhancements to Amazon S3 integration, saving even more
    when cycling snapshots into an Amazon S3 repository
  • Added support for new AWS Regions – AWS Europe (Stockholm) and AWS
    GovCloud (US-East) Regions with cross-region DR between AWS GovCloud
    US-West and AWS GovCloud US-East now available
  • Expanded range of APIs allowing you to configure alerts and recovery
  • Full support for all available APIs via a new CLI tool

For organizations leveraging the N2WS Amazon S3 repository, further
compression and deduplication enhancements have pushed costs saving
above 60% for data stored over longer terms. During simulations, monthly
backups of an 8TB volume stored in the N2WS Amazon S3 repository for 2
years, costs 68% less than the same backups stored as native Amazon EBS
snapshots. These enhancements help enterprises manage and significantly
reduce cloud storage costs for backup data being retained for compliance

disaster recovery solution only available on AWS Marketplace. N2WS
Backup & Recovery version 2.5 is available for immediate use by visiting
