After long discussion, Director of Infrastructure & IT Operations has decided to go with AWS as they are the current market leader.


Logistics was looking for AWS partnership team who can fulfill their requirement. They reached AssistanZ with the above scenario and looking for cost optimized solution.

We proposed to go with Amazon Glacier as storge system for database backups. Also, the backups will be copied from on-prem datacenter to Amazon Glacier through scheduled task.

Also we proposed to mount the AWS Glacier storage system as a network drive to move the backups to cloud infrastructure seamlessly.
