As enterprises move to the cloud, data loss, outages, and malicious attacks are inevitable vulnerabilities, and scaling on AWS is complex, as is the need to stay compliant and optimize costs which breeds an environment too complicated for manual scripts.
N2WS allows customers to ‘set it and forget it’. They can effortlessly manage petabytes of data, recover quickly from any crisis and manage costs, by leveraging N2WS’ secure, rapid data recovery and easy management – all from a single console.
N2WS leverages AWS-native technology to fully automate backup of Amazon EC2, EBS, RDS, Redshift, Aurora, DynamoDB, EFS, and S3. Top-rated on the AWS Marketplace, N2WS provides flexible backup scheduling and 1-click disaster recovery to restore a single file or entire environment in less than 30 seconds, across multiple regions and/or accounts.
N2WS optimizes RTO/RPO, supports multi-tenancy for large environments, and enables customers to lifecycle EBS snapshots for long-term retention.
N2WS Software works with Fortune 500 companies, large public sector organizations, system integrators, and managed service providers across the world to move their business-critical workloads to AWS by ensuring that those workloads are always available and protected.
N2WS Backup & Recovery was recognized with Top Honors for Best Cloud Computing/Storage Solution in the 2021 ‘ASTORS Homeland Security Awards Program, earning a Win for their Fourth Consecutive Year as an ‘ASTORS’ Champion!

N2WS continuously expands support for AWS services and boasts an aggressive enhancement timeline to optimize RTO even further, expand granular recovery options, add more cost-saving features, and integrate with third-party leading monitoring platforms to collect and aggregate N2WS data in real-time.
Here are just a few of N2WS’ recent enhancements:
Non N2WS users can still save big on long-term storage by importing your existing non-N2WS EBS snapshots into N2WS. They can then immediately either Store to Amazon S3 or Archive to Amazon Glacier, easily meeting any and all compliance requirements.
FLR from S3 (no need to restore the entire instance), FLR for Amazon EFS (no need to restore the entire file system), and FLR from multiple snapshots (no need to know the exact date of last held resource)
Allows customers to recover multiple AWS resources at a moment’s notice and define the order of recovery. They can set Dry Runs and be notified of any potential configuration issues.
Customers can now archive EBS snapshots from Amazon S3 to Glacier utilizing very cheap storage costs. Introduced in response to increasing compliance requirements (7+ years), customers can now take frequent backups and archive resources they won’t need to access for months or years.
- Customers can predict infrastructure cost savings when implementing N2WS Resource Control
, an automatic start/stop instance scheduler preventing the overutilization of idle resources.
Allows customers to backup and recover VPC settings across regions and accounts for testing or DR purposes.
Integrations with Datadog, Splunk, and Bocada – leading monitoring platforms can now collect and aggregate N2WS data in real-time.

Best Cloud Computing/Storage Solution
As more enterprises move to the cloud, data loss, outages, and malicious attacks become inevitable vulnerabilities. Scaling data and varying requirements become complex, as is the need to meet compliance regulations and optimize costs. This breeds an environment too complicated for manual scripts.
N2WS leverages AWS-native snapshot technology to fully automate backup of Amazon EC2, EBS, RDS, Redshift, Aurora, DynamoDB, EFS, and S3. It has been the leading storage solution on the AWS Marketplace since 2012, providing very flexible backup scheduling and 1-click disaster recovery to restore a single file or entire environment in less than 30 seconds, across multiple regions and/or accounts.
N2WS Backup & Recovery has been dubbed the Next Generation Backup and Recovery for AWS due to its unique Disaster Recovery orchestration, data lifecycle management and cost savings capabilities. With N2WS, exponentially scaling data is now tantamount to managing complex backup schedules for thousands of AWS EC2 instances.
