Veeam Backup for AWS is a third-party backup solution that provides additional features and functionality beyond what is available with the native AWS Backup program. Here are some reasons why you might consider using Veeam Backup for AWS:
More granular control over backups: Veeam Backup for AWS provides more granular control over backup policies and schedules than the native AWS Backup program. This means you can create more customized backup plans that better meet the needs of your specific workloads.
More efficient backup and recovery: Veeam Backup for AWS uses advanced compression and deduplication techniques to reduce the amount of data that needs to be backed up, which can significantly reduce backup times and storage costs. It also offers faster recovery times, with the ability to recover entire instances or individual files in just a few clicks.
Cross-region and cross-account backups: Veeam Backup for AWS can perform backups across different AWS regions and accounts, which is not possible with the native AWS Backup program. This can be particularly useful if you have a multi-region or multi-account AWS infrastructure.
Multi-cloud support: Veeam Backup for AWS can also backup and recover workloads running in other public cloud platforms, such as Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. This can be useful if you have a multi-cloud strategy and need to protect your data across multiple cloud environments.
Overall, Veeam Backup for AWS provides additional features and flexibility that can be useful for organizations with complex or demanding backup and recovery needs. However, it is important to note that it also comes with additional costs and management overhead compared to the native AWS Backup program
