AWS DataSync

AWS DataSync

AWS DataSync is one of the data transfer services, which makes it quite simple to automatically moves data between the AWS S3 or AWS EFS and on-premises storage. DataSync handles many tasks with regards to moving data from one source to another, which quite normally can slow down the process of migrations and creates burden on your IT operations, which normally includes processing your own occurrences, maintaining encryption, writing scripts, network development, and data integrity verification. By using DataSync you can transfer data faster which is almost 10 times quicker than the open-source tools. DataSync utilizes an on-premises software agent to make a connection between your existing file systems or storage by utilizing the Server Message Block (SMB) and Network File System (NFS) protocols that so that you have no headaches to write scripts or make changes in your applications that can work with AWS APIs. Furthermore you can easily utilize DataSync to copy data instead of AWS Direct Connect or net links to AWS. The service supports only one-time recurring data processing workflows, data migrations, and automatically repetition for data recovery and protection.

Use Cases Achieved with AWS DataSync

Data migration
If you are thinking of shut down data centers and scrapping storage arrays you can utilize Data sync to transfer operating data sets quite quickly over the network into Amazon S3 or Amazon EFS. DataSync does dual process as full initial copies and slowly transfer the changing data.

It can assist in accelerating critical hybrid cloud work processes in businesses that need to transfer operational records into AWS rapidly, consisting of video production in media and entertainment, artificial intelligence in life science, seismic research in oil and gas, and huge information analytics in finance.
Data protection
In-Network Attached Storage (NAS) systems, you will be having large number of files to look after protection of files either with replication or backup to another hardware stack. With the help of you can transfer files into all Amazon S3 storage, and also you can adapt the most price-effective storage class for your needs.
