With the announcement of AWS Export by Amazon S3 last week, we are pleased to announce the support for AWS Export feature with the latest release of Bucket Explorer. Bucket Explorer already supported AWS Import in earlier version. Now you can create Import and Export job using Bucket Explorer. Bucket Explorer also provides you a formatted printable package slip, which you are required to attach with your storage device while sending to Amazon S3.
Advantage of AWS Import/Export
AWS Import/Export speeds up moving bulk data out of and into AWS by using the portable storage device provided to AWS for operation. AWS Import/Export uses its high speed internal network to copy the data.
With faster internal network connection, it takes much lesser time and it is cost effective than internet transfer of the same data.
If you need to transfer larger amounts of data, it is a better option to use AWS Import/Export than to upgrade your internet connectivity.
To start using AWS Import/Export service, “Sign Up for AWS Import/Export”.
How to use AWS Import/Export
- Store your data onto a portable storage device (Import)
- Create Job (bucket name, access key id, return shipping address)
- Place signature file into the root directory of the storage device
- Ship your device to AWS
Other Highlights of this version
- Enhanced Amazon S3 versioning features- download, MFA delete, Update ACL, Copy on all versions
- Added support for private streaming distribution
- AWS Export – AWS Import
As always, we are one of the first S3 tools supporting this feature. Read the Amazon S3 Blog AWS Import/Export.
