It is a hybrid storage service that allows your on-premises applications to effortlessly utilize AWS cloud storage. The service can be used for backup and archiving, cloud data processing, storage tiering, disaster recovery and migration. The service guides you in reduction and simplification of your remote office storage infrastructure or datacenter and branch. Your applications linked to the service via a virtual machine or hardware gateway appliance with the use of standard storage protocols, such as SMB, NFS and iSCSI. The gateway is linked to AWS storage services, such as Amazon S3, Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive, Amazon EBS, Amazon S3 Glacier and AWS Backup, offering storage for snapshots, files, volumes, and virtual tapes in AWS. The service contains a highly-optimized data transfer mechanism, with automated network resilience, bandwidth management, and expert data transfer, beside with a local cache for low-latency on-premises access to your most active data.
The meaning of Hybrid cloud storage is that your data can be utilized on-premises and stored sturdily in AWS Cloud storage services, containing Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive, Amazon S3, Amazon S3 Glacier, and Amazon EBS. Once data is transferred to AWS, you can apply AWS machine learning, compute and big data analytics services to it. In addition, you can influence the complete AWS portfolio of security and management services containing AWS Backup, AWS Identity, AWS KMS and Access Management (IAM), Amazon CloudWatch, SNS workflows and AWS CloudTrail.
It runs on the world’s biggest global cloud infrastructure, and was created for 99.99% of sturdiness. Automatically data is distributed across a least of 3 physical Availability Zones within an AWS Region that are geographically alienated.
It caches data in the hardware gateway appliance or local VM, for your most active data offering low-latency disk and network performance, with advanced data transfers going on to AWS Cloud storage tiers in the background. Users and applications persist to function using a local storage model whereas you take benefit of a cloud back-end.
You get built in Compression, encryption and bandwidth management. Storage Gateway controls local cache offloads to the cloud based on your required performance parameters, so you can make small adjustments in the balancing of scale and latency for your workloads. Only data that modify is transferred, so you can enhance your network bandwidth.
There are no disruptions. Download and install the virtual machine or organize the dedicated hardware appliance, choose an interface and allocate local cache capacity. The protocol support and advanced networking are all included, which means no network and or firewall settings to tune and no clients to install. To serve your in-cloud applications, the virtual appliance can run both on-premises as well as in Amazon EC2.
Cloud storage is billed and delivered on demand, so that you always have just the right amount. Workloads can extent and contract, backup and archive storage can extend with no up-front media costs, and without new hardware, you can provision additional storage capacity.
Data stored via AWS Storage Gateway advantages from the sturdiness and security entrenched in AWS cloud storage services. Storage management tools like cross-region replication, versioning and lifecycle management policies can minimize the cost of long-term archiving, make easier the audit and compliance needs, and protect all of your data, not just the parts kept on-premises. Every data that Storage Gateway moved to AWS is encrypted in transit, and encrypted at rest in AWS.
The benefits and advantages of adding AWS Storage Gateway is very fascinating and looks extremely useful.
