Backup to the Cloud via a portable drive

The latest version of CloudBerry Backup for users of Amazon's cloud-based Simple Storage Solution adds a facility that seems out of place.

 

CloudBerry Backup version 2.1, an application that allows users to back up their data online to their Amazon S3 accounts, adds support for AWS Import/Export which allows shipment of portable drives to Amazon for initial backup.

 

Although this doesn't sounds like a step forward, since Amazon charges for this service, it may be an advantage as it facilitates moving large amounts of data directly onto and off of storage devices using Amazon's high-speed internal network and bypassing the Internet. For large data sets, AWS Import/Export is often faster than Internet transfer and more cost effective than upgrading your connectivity.

 

The new version of the Server edition of CloudBerry Backup automates the process of creating the manifest file and digitally signing it along with the job identifier with your AWS Secret Access Key and placing that signature file on the device. Once the initial data set is imported onto the Amazon S3 storage account the users can configure CloudBerry Backup to send incremental updates over the Internet.
