AWS DataSync supports copying data from Azure Blob Storage to AWS Storage in preview. Using DataSync, you can move your object data at scale from Azure Blob Storage to AWS Storage services such as Amazon S3. AWS DataSync supports all blob types within Azure Blob Storage and can also be used with Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS) Gen 2.

AWS DataSync gives customers a purpose-built service to simplify and automate data transfers. AWS DataSync removes the operational burden of writing and maintaining code, buying and operating data transfer software, and manually ensuring data transfers are executed and verified. AWS DataSync integrates with Amazon CloudWatch and Amazon EventBridge for easy monitoring of metrics, logs, and events. AWS DataSync also compresses data before transit, identifies only the objects that have changed and need to be copied, and automatically recovers from network interruptions. In addition to Azure Blob Storage, DataSync supports Google Cloud Storage and Azure Files storage locations as well as Network File System (NFS) shares, Server Message Block (SMB) shares, Hadoop Distributed File Systems (HDFS), self-managed object storage, AWS Snowcone, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS), and all Amazon FSx file systems.

AWS DataSync support for copying data from Azure Blob Storage (preview) is available from the AWS Console in 26 AWS Regions. For more information, view the documentation and this blog.
