AWS Data Exchange for Amazon S3 is now generally available, helping customers easily find, subscribe to, and use third-party data files for faster time to insight, storage cost optimization, simplified data licensing management, and more. This feature is intended for subscribers who want to use third-party data files directly from data providers’ Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) buckets, without needing to create or manage data copies, as well as data providers who want to offer in-place access to data hosted in their Amazon S3 buckets.
Subscribers access the same S3 objects that the data provider maintains, helping them optimize storage costs and use the most up-to-date data available, without additional engineering or operational work. Data providers can easily set up AWS Data Exchange for Amazon S3 on top of their existing S3 buckets to share direct access to an entire S3 bucket or specific prefixes and objects; these S3 objects can be server-side encrypted with either customer-managed keys stored in AWS Key Management Service or Amazon S3 managed keys. After setup, AWS Data Exchange automatically manages subscriptions, entitlements, billing, and payment.
