How Salesforce Customers Can Leverage AWS for Data Archival & Backup

Have you ever wondered how combining the power of Salesforce with AWS can revolutionize your data archiving and backup strategies? If not, then we certainly have many topics to discuss.

Being a part of the Salesforce ecosystem for 14+ years, we have found that 80% of our customers are using AWS for their daily operations and are yet to explore the benefits of the Salesforce-AWS synergy for their backup & archive operations.

AWS’s unparalleled dominance in the Salesforce ecosystem is backed by a 38% market share in the infrastructure-as-a-service sector. Further, AWS’s reliability, cost-effectiveness, and scalability help to distribute the weighing burden of Salesforce storage cost & maintenance, presenting businesses with an assured agility in data management. Hence, choosing AWS for your Salesforce backup and archives is not just a decision—it can be your strategic advantage!

Let’s join the ranks of industry leaders who trust AWS to power their Salesforce data management journey in this blog. 

The Power of AWS for Salesforce 

Leveraging the formidable capabilities of Amazon Web Services (AWS), businesses can unlock unprecedented potential within their Salesforce ecosystems. The benefits of Salesforce-AWS integration empower organizations to scale with agility, harness advanced analytics, and fortify data security, driving transformative outcomes and competitive advantages. This has been proven over multiple use cases to the realm of reliability, where Salesforce finds resorts on the AWS cloud infrastructure. 

Even Salesforce uses AWS to boost its platform capabilities, such as data hosting for Einstein products, email integration with Einstein Activity Capture, and infrastructure management for Heroku. AWS’s services like Amazon Connect in Service Cloud Voice and AWS GovCloud in Government Cloud Plus ensure advanced telephony features and high-level compliance. 

Despite these advantages, businesses find Salesforce-AWS integration to be challenging. Even though it varies across industries, we identified some common integration challenges to resolve the complexity of Salesforce archive & backup using the AWS bridge. 

Salesforce- AWS Integration Bottlenecks 

Pain points where many decision-makers struggle to make a move with Salesforce-AWS integration to streamline their data management strategy involve – 

Technical complexities: Complex technical configurations and potential data migration challenges from Salesforce to AWS, hinder seamless adoption.

Additional Connector Cost: Depending on the tools and services used, such as MuleSoft or third-party solutions. Pricing typically includes subscription fees, usage-based costs, and potential implementation expenses. 

Security Concerns: Navigating security and compliance requirements across two major platforms, raising concerns about data integrity and privacy in Salesforce and AWS environments. 

Training Investments: Significant investment in training and upskilling teams for efficient Salesforce-AWS systems, impacting time-to-market and ROI considerations.

Customization Trade-offs: Potential limitations in customization and flexibility compared to standalone Salesforce or AWS solution, requiring careful assessment of trade-offs and strategic alignment with business objectives.
