We are delighted to announce two new features for AWS Storage Gateway.

First, you can now configure your AWS Storage Gateway resources programmatically through an API. You can use this API to automate your backup and disaster recovery workflows. You can develop scripts ahead of time so that, when necessary, you can quickly and seamlessly shift your operations to Amazon EC2. This API can be used directly or, if you prefer, you can use the AWS SDKs for .NET, PHP, and Java. Learn more by visiting the AWS SDK page, or referring to the AWS Storage Gateway User Guide.

Second, we're announcing AWS Storage Gateway support for AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM). With IAM, you can easily control which users in your organization have access to your AWS Storage Gateway resources. You can create multiple Users within your AWS Account, and specify which AWS Storage Gateway actions a User or a group of Users can perform on specific gateways. IAM also makes it easy to enable or disable a User's access to your gateways, simplifying and securing management of access credentials. Learn more by visiting the IAM page, or referring to the AWS Storage Gateway User Guide.
