Benefits of US Cloud Backup Solutions for AWS

Hosted Offsite Backups

Get your AWS physical and virtual backups offsite to a US Cloud repository through a secure SSL connection with no additional licensing required.

Complete Visibility & Control

Access and recover Amazon cloud data in hosted backup repositories at US Cloud directly from the backup console; track cloud repository consumption and receive US Cloud reminders for storage renewals.

A Modern Backup Architecture

Leverage Veeam’s modern backup technology for AWS, including Backup Copy jobs with Built-in WAN Acceleration, forever incremental backups, GFS (grandfather-father-son) retention policies and more—all built into one product and managed by US Cloud.

End-to-End Encryption

Rest easy by encrypting all data at source (before it leaves the Amazon AWS cloud perimeter and arrives at US Cloud), in flight and at rest, without negatively impacting the data reduction ratios of built-in compression and WAN Acceleration.


US Cloud can help protect data managed in your own data centers by backing it up to the cloud. All kinds of customers use the cloud to replace tape, streamline media management and simplify archival processes. Most major backup software vendors integrate directly with US Cloud and preserve media catalogs and existing backup jobs. Augment existing backup processes with US Cloud tiered storage or archiving services.


Some applications need data both on site and in the AWS cloud at the same time. US Cloud Gateway device is ideal for organizations that want to work with data locally as well as in the cloud. For backups, this means integrating with existing systems and applications using standard storage protocols, while offering a virtually unlimited cloud back-end for big data analytics, archive, disaster or recovery.


This environment has workloads that exist entirely on AWS, where customers have access to virtual servers, databases, applications, monitoring services, and Active Directory. AWS Offsite backups to US Cloud are critical for meeting 321 disaster recovery guidelines and regulatory compliance mandates. Full object, block and file system backups  (such as versioning, snapshots or cross-region replication) available.

Tape Replacement

For many companies, tape backup is critical for protecting data and applications but remains a fault-prone, resource-intensive, and costly process. To help companies build more resilient and high-performance backup capabilities, US Cloud offers data migration services, storage services, and backup solutions to improve and replace tape backups, on-premises tape libraries, and offsite physical archiving services. By working with US Cloud. businesses are leveraging the scalability, cost efficiencies, flexibility, and automation features of US Cloud backup services for AWS to protect their data while remaining agile in an ever-evolving marketplace.

Snapshot-Based Data Protection

US Cloud backup customers can create snapshots (backups) of their Amazon data, including any EBS volume. These snapshots are then placed in US Cloud off-site repository to be stored securely and redundantly (optional) in multiple data centers. Snapshots are incremental backups, which means that only blocks on the device that have changed after your most recent snapshot are saved. This minimizes the time and costs required to store the snapshots. You can use US Cloud backup for AWS to  snapshot large databases in the Amazon cloud as well (often used for databases that are required to run 24/7).

Disaster Recovery

Designing backup strategies with US Cloud, firms must identify the disaster situations that can occur, anticipate the potential impacts, and build comprehensive disaster recovery solutions. This is critical to ensuring business continuity during and after events that could negatively impact your operations, financial performance, and brand. Get ahead of disaster events by using US Cloud backup services to enable faster disaster recovery of critical IT systems without incurring the infrastructure expense of a second physical site. We support many architectures such as pilot light, warm standby, and hot standby environments.

Database Backup

US Cloud database services makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. In addition to being cost-efficient, flexible, and scalable, US Cloud database backup services automate the snapshots of a database instance. The entire storage volume includes all files, so these snapshots are backing up the entire database instance (not just individual databases). This means you can quickly and easily recover your database to any point in time during the backup retention period.

Archiving and Cold Storage

Satisfy internal governance purposes or regulatory compliance requirements with US Cloud archiving and cold storage solutions.  Quickly and easily move production backup data to offline or nearline archiving and cold storage.  Companies of all sizes must retain data for extended durations which traditionally requires expensive, purpose-built hardware and can quickly drive up storage costs as data volumes grow.  US Cloud offers the storage services you need to build long-term archiving capabilities to store data cost-effectively for years or even decades.
