The new AWS Storage Gateway management console makes it easier for you to create, manage, and monitor resources such as file shares, tapes, and volumes. In addition to a refreshed look and feel, you can now connect your gateway with a simple activation key to help speed up deployment, and create new file shares using a streamlined process. You can easily configure your gateway to use Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) endpoints and leverage enhanced troubleshooting information for the endpoint configuration. Throughout the console, contextual information about your Storage Gateway resources is provided as part of the help panel, allowing you to easily find answers to common questions and browse related User guide content.

Storage Gateway is a hybrid cloud storage service that provides on-premises applications access to virtually unlimited storage in the cloud. You can use Storage Gateway 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.

The new management console is available in every AWS Region where Storage Gateway is available. Visit the Storage Gateway User guide to learn more, or log into the Storage Gateway console and use the ‘New experience’ toggle to get started.
