Amazon's built-in redundancy and failover architecture guarantees data durability within the Amazon data centers, but does not provide the backup and recovery features needed to restore DynamoDB tables in the event of accidental or malicious data loss.
CloudAlly bridges the gap by providing automated daily backups of all DynamoDB tables to unlimited Amazon S3 secure storage enabling customers to export or restore tables from any point in time. In addition to DynamoDB, CloudAlly customers can also activate backups for AWS SimpleDB, Salesforce, Google Apps, Gmail and Yahoo! Mail.
"As a hosted service running on solid-state drive (SSD) technology, DynamoDB provides a highly-available, reliable and scalable NoSQL solution with almost zero administration overhead, but lacks critical backup and recovery capabilities."
CloudAlly is built on Amazon's reliable AWS Platform and all data is encrypted and stored in Amazon S3 storage. Customers can activate automated daily backups for DynamoDB with a few simple clicks once they've activated their CloudAlly account.
CloudAlly has been tested and verified secure by Amazon Web Services, Salesforce.com, and Google Apps, and is available in the Salesforce AppExchange, Google Apps Marketplace, or directly from the company's website. Pricing discounts are available to qualified Academic and Non-Profit Organizations.
