New on Jeff Barr’s Blog: Amazon S3 Path Deprecation Plan – The Rest of the Story

I wanted to be sure you saw Jeff Barr’s latest blog on the Amazon S3 Path Deprecation Plan. A snippet is below, but I encourage you to visit his blog to read the full post.

From Jeff:

Last week we made a fairly quiet (too quiet, in fact) announcement of our plan to slowly and carefully deprecate the path-based access model that is used to specify the address of an object in an S3 bucket. I spent some time talking to the S3 team in order to get a better understanding of the situation in order to write this blog post.

In response to feedback on the original deprecation plan that we announced last week, we are making an important change.

Here’s the executive summary:

Original Plan – Support for the path-style model ends on September 30, 2020.

Revised Plan – Support for the path-style model continues for buckets created on or before September 30, 2020. Buckets created after that date must be referenced using the virtual-hosted model.

We’re Here to Help

The S3 team has been working with some of our customers to help them to migrate, and they are ready to work with many more. Our goal is to make this deprecation smooth and uneventful, and we want to help minimize any costs you may incur! Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have questions, challenges, or concerns.
