Build data lakes

Consolidate your data so it’s easier to model and analyze. Use Amazon S3 to build a secure, durable, and scalable data lake. Take advantage of its integration with a wide range of services for analytics and ML.

Modernize application development

Build cloud-native applications and get to market faster with a microservices architecture and more. Choose AWS storage services that persist and share data from your AWS containers and serverless applications.

Backup to AWS storage

Extend secondary storage targets to the cloud to address exponential data growth. Migrate copies of on-premises data to AWS and protect applications already in the cloud with services from AWS and AWS Partners.

Archive to the cloud

Meet long-term retention requirements with AWS storage services. Manage compliance and digital preservation with services that provide security, reliability, unlimited scalability, and 99.999999999% durability. Access data faster than on-premises tape.

Process data at disconnected edge locations

Run applications in disconnected or ruggedized edge locations with AWS physical devices. Collect and process data and migrate it to the cloud with products that perform in even the most rugged and austere environments.
