firstname.lastname@example.orgWe are running our EC2 instance 24/7. It has been very reliable and stable. You really need the instance running 24/7 because you never know how much data is needing to be uploaded from clients Servers. We are currently backing up 10 Client servers to our EC2 server and haven't had any problems with load. We will be migrating 20 more servers over to our Kaseya/BUDR/Offsite solution in the next couple months so the load should grow quite a bit. I will keep everyone informed as to how it goes.
email@example.comWe have been using the EC2 platform and Amazon S3 storage service to host our offsite BDR server and it's working great. We have created an EC2 instance of Windows Server 2003 and installed the Offsite BDR service. Our backups are being copied to an EBS Volume attached to our Server 2003 AMI, and then snap shots of the backups are being written to the S3 storage cloud. It has been very very reliable and very cost effective.
RebootI thought there was a 5gb file max with Amazon. Is this not the case? If that is the case then how are you doing the Synthetic full backups with files over the 5gb limit?
