Mounting Amazon S3 to an Amazon EC2 instance using a private connection to S3 File Gateway

Customers rehosting applications in the cloud that deal with large files and unstructured data can benefit by utilizing object storage from a performance, scalability, and cost perspective, as compared to block or file storage. If a legacy or COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) application being migrated doesn’t inherently support object storage services like Amazon S3, it may be […]

AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery

Tracking AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery costs with AWS Cost Explorer and cost allocation tags

Organizing, forecasting, and understanding the costs of your disaster recovery (DR) solution is an important part of DR cost optimization and management. Without a breakdown of resource costs, these tasks can be challenging. Allocating tags to resources is a useful strategy to identify and group resources for cost estimation.
