AWS Storage Gateway seamlessly and securely integrates an on-premises IT environment with the AWS storage infrastructure in the AWS Cloud. This solution utilizes a Storage Gateway device to provide a file exchange gateway for agencies. The Gateway requires a physical server on premises that caches data and backups/replicates data to the cloud at intervals determined by the agency/customer.
AWS Storage Gateway gives you on-premises access to virtually unlimited cloud storage. It includes automated data backup, archive storage disaster recovery, air-gapping and immutability, content collaboration, and more.
It also provides a standard set of storage protocols such as iSCSI, SMB, and NFS, which allow you to use AWS Storage without rewriting your existing applications.
Who It's for
This product offering is available to:
For all stages in the cloud adoption journey:
- Backup and archive data to AWS
- Shift on-premises network attached storage to cloud-backed file shares
- Continuous reinvention
- Access and share cloud data across edge locations
Bridge the Gap between Your On-premises Environment and the Cloud
As you evaluate your environment, some applications are relatively straightforward to move to the cloud while others are more complex. Applications may need to remain on-premises for performance or compliance reasons or because they require tight integration.
For these reasons, you may want to explore hybrid cloud storage solutions that provide on-premises access to data stored in AWS.
AWS Storage Gateway is a hybrid cloud storage solution that helps agencies overcome these challenges and bridge the gap between their on-premises environment and the cloud, giving you on-premises access to virtually unlimited cloud storage.
- Easy on-ramp to cloud benefits: fast time to value
- Local caching: low-latency access
- Secure and compliant: FIPS, HIPAA, PCI, SOC, ISO
- Multi-protocol: no changes to applications
- Centralized management and control
- Cloud economics
- Optimized data transfers: minimize network traffic
- Can be air-gapped and immutable for enhanced recoverability, depending on customer configuration choices
AWS Storage Gateway provides a lower-cost file storage option while embracing the safety and security that the cloud offers. It offers an on-premises low-cost storage server that provides file shares that you can access while replicating the data to an AWS S3 storage bucket.
This solution gives you the ability to protect your agency's data with a cloud solution in the event of a server failure or if you need a new server rebuild. A new server can be obtained, and your agency's data can be downloaded from the cloud onto the new server seamlessly.
