Sorting through AWS Data Storage options

Sponsored by SearchAWS

Selecting a storage option from those offered by Amazon Web Services -- Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS) and the AWS Data Pipeline -- is a difficult task facing many businesses exploring the cloud. All three are designed to work best for particular storage requirements, but it’s no easy job determining which is best for your organization. In this three-part guide, SearchAWS contributors light the path to selecting an effective, secure AWS Storage option.

First, systems architect and consultant Dan Sullivan offers up some background on Amazon S3 and EBS. A bit of information, he writes, can help struggling organizations choose between the two. Next, Ofir Nachmani, a business technology adviser, discusses new changes to the encryption feature on Amazon Web Services S3. Those tweaks have given administrators a flexibility with AWS encryption not available in the initial feature. An increased willingness to adopt the public cloud is another outcome of recent updates to encryption on AWS. Sullivan finishes the guide with a look at managing workflows in the cloud. For many organizations, the AWS Data Pipeline satisfies a host of essential workflow requirements.
