AWS Storage Gateway introduces file-level upload notifications for File Gateway, enabling you to trigger automated workflows in the cloud and easily process on-premises file data stored with AWS as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) objects.  

With this launch, you can use File Gateway to automatically generate file-level upload notifications to Amazon CloudWatch when an on-premises file is uploaded to AWS through the gateway and stored as an Amazon S3 object. You can configure Amazon CloudWatch or Amazon EventBridge to send file-level upload events to an event target, such as AWS Lambda, and automatically trigger downstream workflows required by your business processes. For example, you can use file-level upload notifications to create an automated process to copy individual Amazon S3 objects to another Amazon S3 bucket as part of your data protection workflow. 

Storage Gateway is a hybrid cloud storage service that provides on-premises applications access to virtually unlimited cloud storage using NFS, SMB, iSCSI, and iSCSI-VTL interfaces through file, tape, and volume gateways. You can use the service for backing up and archiving data to AWS, providing on-premises file shares backed by cloud storage, and providing on-premises applications low latency access to in-cloud data. 

These capabilities are available on new gateways starting today in every Region where AWS Storage Gateway is available. For existing gateways this new capability will be made available during the next scheduled software update. To learn more, visit the AWS Storage Gateway User Guide. Access the Storage Gateway console to get started.
