As a young Hollywood movie director, Martin Scorsese remembers the exact moment he decided to devote his time to historic film preservation and conservation. He had just walked out of a double-feature of the films “Niagara” and “The Seven-Year Itch,” both starring Marilyn Monroe and made just two years apart. “Niagara” was wonderfully intact and in fine condition, while “The Seven-Year Itch” was already badly faded. Since then, Scorsese and his nonprofit organization, The Film Foundation, have restored more than 800 films and made them available to movie-goers around the world, in addition to helping all people ensure their films, digital files and videos survive through careful backup and protection from catastrophes.
That’s a little what Managed Backup – Amazon Web Services (AWS) from Sungard Availability Services (“Sungard AS”) is like for today’s enterprises looking to protect and preserve their data in the cloud. Managed Backup – AWS is a fully managed, SLA backed data protection service, that allows companies to back up data from their premises to AWS, giving them a more agile backup solution than what they already have, enhancing their business resilience along the way.
