What is AWS Storage Gateway?
AWS Storage Gateway is a hybrid cloud storage service that offers nearly unlimited cloud storage to your on-premise applications. Using Storage Gateway can simplify storage management of your applications and reduce their costs. Some of the ways that you can use the service include moving your backups to the cloud, backing your on-premise file shares with cloud storage, and providing your applications with low-latency data access.
AWS offers three types of gateways: File Gateways, Tape Gateways and Volume Gateways. A File Gateway allows applications to store durable objects such as data files and images in Amazon S3 cloud storage. A Tape Gateway allows you to replace physical backup tapes kept on-premise with virtual ones on the cloud. Finally, a Volume Gateway provides your applications with cloud-backed iSCSI block storage volumes.
AWS encrypts all data transferred by Storage Gateway, both in transit and in rest.
You can manage and update your gateways through the AWS console.
