AWS DataSync

Simplify and accelerate secure data migrations

Eliminate unnecessary hurdles to cloud data migration and achieve end-to-end security, including encryption and data integrity validation.

Schedule data transfers between file and object storage platforms, reduce management costs, and scale seamlessly even as data loads increase.

Migrate or replicate file and object data to the cloud quickly, and throttle incremental migrations to control bandwidth consumption.

    AWS DataSync is a secure, online service that automates and accelerates moving data between on premises and AWS storage services. DataSync can copy data between 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) buckets, Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) file systems, and Amazon FSx for Windows File Server file systems.

    AWS DataSync is also used to transfer data between AWS Storage services so you can replicate, archive, or share application data easily.
