Amazon Kendra is an intelligent search service powered by machine learning, enabling organizations to provide relevant information to customers and employees, when they need it. Starting today, AWS customers can use the Amazon Kendra S3 Connector to index and search documents from S3 hosted in their VPC. 

Critical information can be scattered across multiple data sources in an enterprise, including data storage platforms like S3. Customers can host S3 buckets in their VPC for secure access to their data. Amazon Kendra customers can now use the Kendra S3 Connector to also crawl these S3 buckets in a secure environment such as in a customer’s VPC to index documents and search for information across this content using Kendra Intelligent Search.

The Amazon Kendra S3 connector is available in all AWS regions where Amazon Kendra is available. To learn more about the connector, visit the documentation page or the Amazon Kendra connector library. To explore Amazon Kendra, visit the Amazon Kendra website.
