The AWS Storage Gateway helps you connect your on-premises IT environment with the AWS cloud. Today, we are excited to announce support for running the AWS Storage Gateway on an additional virtualization platform, Microsoft Hyper-V.

You can use the AWS Storage Gateway in two configurations. Gateway-Cached volumes provide local, low-latency access to your most frequently used files while storing all your data in Amazon S3’s elastic, highly durable storage infrastructure. Gateway-Stored volumes provide scheduled off-site backups to Amazon S3 for your on-premises data. With support for Microsoft Hyper-V in addition to already-supported VMware ESXi, you can now run the AWS Storage Gateway on two of the most popular virtualization platforms.
