|Support for gateway-cached storage volumes||
The AWS Storage Gateway now supports gateway-cached storage volumes, a new
volume type that allows your on-premises file and backup servers to seamlessly
utilize Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for scalable and cost-effective storage.
Gateway-cached volumes encrypt and durably store you primary data in Amazon S3,
with a cache of recently accessed data stored locally for low-latency access.
For step-by-step instructions on setting up and using gateway-cached volumes, go to
Getting Started in the AWS Storage Gateway User Guide.
For applications requiring low-latency access to their entire data set, you can continue using the existing gateway-stored volume functionality, where your primary data is stored locally and backed up to Amazon S3. For more information, go to How AWS Storage Gateway Works in the AWS Storage Gateway User Guide.
