AWS Storage Gateway is now HIPAA eligible. If you have an executed Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with AWS, you can now use Storage Gateway to store, backup and archive protected health information (PHI) on scalable, cost-effective, and secure AWS storage services, including Amazon S3, Amazon Glacier and Amazon EBS, which are also HIPAA eligible.

Information on HIPAA eligible services on AWS can be found at our HIPAA Compliance page, and you can enter into a BAA with AWS here. HIPAA eligibility for Storage Gateway applies to all gateway types (File, Volume and Tape), and all AWS Regions where Storage Gateway is available.
