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.
