Storage Gateway Overview
  • Connects an on-premises software appliance with cloud-based storage to provide seamless integration with data security features between your on-premises IT environment and the AWS storage infrastructure.

File Gateway

  • Enables you to store and retrieve objects in Amazon S3 using file protocols such as Network File System (NFS) and Server Message Block (SMB).
  • Objects written through File Gateway can be directly accessed in S3.

Volume Gateway

  • Provides block storage to your on-premises applications using iSCSI connectivity.
  • Data on the volumes is stored in Amazon S3 and you can take point in time copies of volumes which are stored in AWS as Amazon EBS snapshots.
  • Cached volumes
    • Store your data in Amazon S3 and retain a copy of frequently accessed data subsets locally.
    • Retain low-latency access to your frequently accessed data.
  • Stored volumes
    • If you need low-latency access to your entire dataset, first configure your on-premises gateway to store all your data locally.

Tape Gateway

  • Provides your backup application with an iSCSI virtual tape library (VTL) interface, consisting of a virtual media changer, virtual tape drives, and virtual tapes. Virtual tapes are stored in Amazon S3 and can be archived to Amazon S3 Glacier or Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive.
  • Provides cloud-backed virtual tape storage.
  • With a tape gateway, you can cost-effectively and durably archive backup data in GLACIER or DEEP_ARCHIVE.
    • A tape gateway provides a virtual tape infrastructure that scales seamlessly with your business needs and eliminates the operational burden of provisioning, scaling, and maintaining a physical tape infrastructure.
