We’re excited to announce that AWS Import/Export now supports importing and exporting data into and out of Amazon S3 buckets in the EU (Ireland) Region. Additionally, you can now ship storage devices from most international locations for data loads to and from US Standard Region buckets. AWS Import/Export accelerates moving large amounts of data into and out of AWS using portable storage devices for transport. AWS loads your data directly onto and off of storage devices using Amazon’s high-speed internal network and bypassing the Internet. For significant data sets, AWS Import/Export is often faster than Internet transfer and more cost effective than upgrading your connectivity. Please visit the AWS Import/Export Detail Page for more information.
