NEW N2WS version 3.1 continues the tradition of N2WS Backup & Recovery exceeding customer expectations by delivering increased flexibility for recovery orchestration, data lifecycle management and further enhancing cost optimization tools.

WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. – Aug. 17, 2020 — / — N2WS, a leader in enterprise Backup and Disaster Recovery for Amazon Web Services (AWS), today announced the general availability of N2WS Backup & Recovery 3.1. This release deepens performance, cost-optimization and automation capabilities on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide: data replication between Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) buckets across regions and accounts; fast and efficient Amazon Elastic Block Storage (Amazon EBS) snapshot copy to Amazon S3 for long-term archiving; custom tag integration; recovery drill scheduling and cross-region DR for Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS).

As organizations expand their footprint on AWS, IT Admins are tasked with managing an increasingly large and complex environment. They require the right tools to help centralize and automate key backup and recovery processes, as well as provide efficient storage management and simple cost-optimization tools.

“Our customers are always looking for new ways to simplify their backup and recovery processes on AWS. N2WS Backup & Recovery v3.1 builds on the success of version 3.0, where we introduced a complete, new user experience. Today, we unveil our latest release which adds greater flexibility and granularity, while ensuring customers are equipped to confidently build their DR strategy. Importantly, it allows them to make the right decisions about where backups are stored for audit and compliance.” Gil Sasson, VP R&D, N2WS.

With the release of version 3.1, customers can better protect critical AWS workloads, prove compliance, and gain total confidence in their Disaster Recovery strategy with capabilities including:

Optimized Data Lifecycle Management: Lower storage costs by immediately archiving snapshots to Amazon S3, without needing to keep the original Amazon EBS snapshot.
Amazon S3 Replication: Automatically sync Amazon S3 buckets across AWS Regions or AWS accounts.
Disaster Recovery testing: Schedule regular DR dry runs, check recovery configurations, and prepare for any disaster scenario.
Custom tags: Integrate existing tag schemas and streamline backup policies for more intelligent data management.
Reporting improvements: Provides greater detail in the Snapshot Report: new details include volume size, valid data size, and the size of changed data.
Cross-region DR: Ensure high availability for Amazon EFS workloads with cross-region disaster recovery.
