AWS Storage Gateway is expanding the ways you can purchase the AWS Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance, and for the first-time enabling resellers to offer the appliance. Now you can procure the hardware appliance through the reseller of your choice, and leverage your existing purchasing agreements.

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

The AWS Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance provides you with a simple out-of-the-box experience to deploy storage gateway on-premises. The hardware appliance is a physical, standalone, validated server configuration that comes pre-loaded with Storage Gateway software, and provides all the required compute, memory, network, and storage resources for creating and configuring the gateway for on-premises hybrid cloud storage deployments, and is managed from the AWS Console. The hardware appliance supports Amazon S3 File Gateway, Amazon FSx File Gateway, Tape Gateway, and Volume Gateway.
