Easily transfer data across AWS partitions


This solution provides secure, scalable, and trackable data transfer for Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) objects and Amazon Elastic Container Registry (Amazon ECR) images. This data transfer helps customers easily create and manage different types (Amazon S3 object and Amazon ECR image) of transfer tasks between AWS partitions (for example, aws, aws-cn, aws-us-gov), and from other cloud providers to AWS. 

What's new

  • Provided support for Amazon S3 destination bucket being encrypted with Amazon S3 managed keys
  • Provided the optional Amazon S3 bucket to hold prefix list file
  • Added three supported Regions: Asia Pacific (Melbourne), Canada (Calgary), and Israel (Tel Aviv)
  • Increased Finder capacity to 316GB & 512GB 

To find out about other new features, refer to the Revisions page.


Intuitive user interface

The user interface allows customers to create and manage data transfer tasks for Amazon S3 objects and Amazon ECR images.

Varied source support

The solution supports data transfer to Amazon S3 from Alibaba Cloud OSS, Tencent COS, Qiniu Kodo, and Amazon S3 compatible cloud storage. Transfer to Amazon ECR from Docker Hub, Google gcr.io, and Red Hat Quay.io is also supported.

Serverless architecture

Transfer tasks are on-demand and pay-as-you-go. For more information, refer to the Cost section of the implementation guide.

Technical details

You can automatically deploy this architecture using the implementation guide and the AWS CloudFormation templates for AWS Regions or AWS China Regions.

Use cases for this AWS Solution
  • Headline


If you deploy this solution in the AWS (Beijing) Region operated by Beijing Sinnet Technology Co., Ltd. (Sinnet), or the AWS (Ningxia) Region operated by Ningxia Western Cloud Data Technology Co., Ltd., you are required to provide a domain with ICP Recordal before you can access the web console.

The web console is a centralized place to create and manage all data transfer jobs. Each data type (for example, Amazon S3 or Amazon ECR) is a plugin for Data Transfer Hub, and is packaged as an AWS CloudFormation template hosted in an Amazon S3 bucket that AWS owns. When you create a transfer task, an AWS Lambda function initiates the AWS CloudFormation template, and state of each task is stored and displayed in the DynamoDB tables.

As of today, the solution supports two data transfer plugins: an Amazon S3 plugin and an Amazon ECR plugin.
