How long does object replication take on Amazon S3?

Last updated: 2022-07-19

I configured object replication from one Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket to another bucket. How long does it take to replicate objects?

Resolution

Most objects replicate within 15 minutes. However, sometimes replication can take a couple of hours. In rare cases, the replication can take longer.

There are several factors that can affect replication time, including (but not limited to):

  • The size of the objects to be replicated.
  • For cross-Region replication, the pairing of the source and destination AWS Regions.

If you don't see object replicas in the destination bucket after you configure replication, see Troubleshooting replication.
