How long does object replication take on Amazon S3?

Last updated: 2019-12-17

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


Most objects replicate within 15 minutes, but sometimes replication can take a couple of hours or more. Replication is an asynchronous process, and the objects are eventually replicated.

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 Regions.
