Import/Export

AWS Import/Export accelerates moving large amounts of data into and out of AWS using portable storage devices for transport. AWS transfers your data directly onto and off of storage devices using Amazon's high-speed internal network and bypassing the Internet. For significant datasets, AWS Import/Export is often faster than Internet transfer and more cost effective than upgrading your connectivity.

Import/Export Price Model

With AWS Import/Export, you pay only for what you use. AWS Import/Export has three pricing components: a per-device fee, a data load time charge (per data-loading-hour), and possible return shipping charges (for expedited shipping, or shipping to destinations not local to that AWS Import/Export region).

Storage Gateway

AWS Storage Gateway is a service that connects an on-premises software appliance with cloud-based storage to provide seamless and secure integration between an organization's on premises IT environment and AWS's storage infrastructure. The service enables you to securely store data to the AWS cloud for scalable and cost-effective storage.

Storage Gateway

AWS Storage Gateway's software appliance is available for download as a virtual machine (VM) image that you install on a host in your datacenter. Once you've installed your gateway and associated it with your AWS account through our activation process, you can use the AWS Management Console to create either gateway-cached or gateway-stored volumes that can be mounted as iSCSI devices by your on-premises applications.

Storage Gateway - Gateway-cached volumes

Gateway-cached volumes allow you to utilize Amazon S3 for your primary data, while retaining some portion of it locally in a cache for frequently accessed data. These volumes minimize the need to scale your on-premises storage infrastructure, while still providing your applications with low-latency access to their frequently accessed data.

You can create storage volumes up to 32 TBs in size and mount them as iSCSI devices from your on-premises application servers. Data written to these volumes is stored in Amazon S3, with only a cache of recently written and recently read data stored locally on your on-premises storage hardware.

Storage Gateway - Gateway-stored volumes

Gateway-stored volumes store your primary data locally, while asynchronously backing up that data to AWS. These volumes provide your on-premises applications with low-latency access to their entire datasets, while providing durable, off-site backups. You can create storage volumes up to 1 TB in size and mount them as iSCSI devices from your on-premises application servers.

Data written to your gateway-stored volumes is stored on your on-premises storage hardware, and asynchronously backed up to Amazon S3 in the form of Amazon EBS snapshots.

Storage Gateway Pricing

With AWS Storage Gateway, you pay only for what you use. AWS Storage Gateway has four pricing components: gateway usage (per gateway per month), snapshot storage usage (per GB per month), volume storage usage (per GB per month), and data transfer out (per GB per month).
