Free workstation backup to Amazon S3

Post by AlfaT »

Hello,

Couldn't really decide which forum to post this one, but tried here, hope it will fit.

I have a single (personal) workstation at home I need to backup and would like to do it both to local destinations and also to Amazon (Glacier Deep Archive for that matter).
I need to backup mostly files. Would also be nice to have if I can do an image backup of my system drive but not a must. Don't need all the rest of the endless features.
Does Veeam has any free solution to facilitate such a requirement ? Went through them all but couldn't find any.

Thanks in advance !

Hello,
Veeam Agent for Windows offers backup to local destinations. It does not offer direct backup to object storage today.

As for Glacier (just as a hint as you will use a different product anyway): I recommend to check Glacier restore costs. Some people already burned money by forgetting about retrieval and early deletion fees

Best regards,
Hannes

Hello Hannes,

Thank you for your reply.

I'm well aware of the costs, but this is a going to be used as an archive for bulks of data. I"m familiar with the downsides, but it will fit my use case.
Is there another Veeam consumer-grade (in terms of pricing) product that can backup to Amazon/Azure/etc. ?

Thanks again.
