Provide on-premises applications with access to virtually unlimited cloud storage

Deliver low-latency data access to on-premises applications while leveraging the agility, economics and security capabilities of AWS in the cloud.

Provide on-premises applications access to cloud-backed storage without disruption to your business by maintaining user and application workflows.

Offer virtually unlimited cloud storage to users and applications without deploying new storage hardware.

Support your compliance efforts with key capabilities like encryption, audit logging, and write-once, read-many (WORM) storage.

Storage Gateway types

AWS Storage Gateway gives your applications on-premises and in-cloud access to virtually unlimited cloud storage. You can deploy Storage Gateway as a virtual machine (VM) within your VMware, Hyper-V, or Linux KVM virtual environment, or as an Amazon EC2 instance within your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).

Amazon S3 File Gateway

S3 File Gateway presents Server Message Block (SMB) or Network File System (NFS) based access to data in Amazon S3

Tape Gateway

Tape Gateway presents virtual tapes to leading to backup applications that you can store in Amazon S3 or Amazon S3 Glacier.

Volume Gateway

Volume Gateway presents iSCSI block storage volumes to your on-premises applications that you can store in Amazon S3 or migrate to Amazon EBS.

Use cases

S3 File Gateway delivers on-premises file access to your Amazon S3 data

With S3 File Gateway you can build data workflows to feed your data lake, archive cold data such as images and videos, and backup databases such as Microsoft SQL, Oracle, and SAP - all into S3. 

Tape Gateway virtualizes tape backup and archive workflows in AWS

Tape Gateway enables you to replace using physical tapes on premises with virtual tapes in AWS without changing existing backup workflows. Tape Gateway supports all leading backup applications and caches virtual tapes on premises for low-latency data access.

Volume Gateway expands on-premises block storage capacity

You can use Volume Gateway in conjunction with Windows and Linux servers on premises to provide scalable storage for on-premises applications with cloud recovery options. With a cached volume architecture, you get the benefit of scalable cloud storage and data protection for growing datasets that demand low latency local access for frequently used data.
