Connect to your storage, connect to our storage, and start copying

Getting started with DataSync is easy: Deploy the DataSync agent on premises, connect it to a file system or storage array using NFS or SMB protocols, or specify the API endpoint for your self-managed object storage. Then, select Amazon S3, Amazon EFS, or Amazon FSx for Windows File Server as your AWS storage, and start moving data. You'll pay only for the data you copy.
