N2WS Announces Its Cloud Protection Manager Free Edition

N2W Software, a provider of cloud-native backup and disaster recovery for Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud), has launched its flagship product Cloud Protection Manager (CPM) – available for free on AWS Marketplace. 

N2W Software’s CPM Free Edition would give users access to an enterprise-grade solution purpose-built for AWS Cloud that provides operational backup, recovery, and Disaster Recovery. It would enable users to automate backup processes and protect AWS Cloud workloads from data loss or outages. It has an “easy-to-use” interface for scheduling backups and restoring entire instances, and provides users with “in-depth” reporting, alerting, auditing, and dashboard functions.

n2w softwareCPM Free Edition provides agentless backups of full production workloads on AWS Cloud by “leveraging and enhancing” native AWS snapshot capabilities. It supports backup and recovery operations on up-to five Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances. By selecting a recovery point, CPM Free Edition users would be able to restore an entire instance to a working state in under one minute. Using CPM file-level recovery, users can also retrieve previous versions of individual files and folders without needing to do a full instance or volume restore. CPM Free Edition can also be configured to provide disaster recovery for AWS workloads by copying critical snapshots from one AWS region to another.

For users that have a requirement to operate staging environments on AWS, CPM Free Edition can take snapshots of fully configured AMIs that can be stored in CPM and stood up with a single click as and when required. This functionality would remove the need for staging environments to be run all the time and is paid for on an ongoing basis.

“Cloud Protection Manager Free Edition was a revenue-generating product that is now available for free on AWS Marketplace,” said Jason Judge, CEO of N2WS. “We want to expose more customers to the innovative tools available on AWS Marketplace. By offering a high-quality product for free, we hope it will encourage wider adoption of our proven solutions.”

CPM already helps hundreds of enterprises and cloud-focused service providers protect valuable data and mission-critical applications on AWS Cloud. CPM Free Edition is distributed as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) and is available for use in most regions on AWS Marketplace.
