Welcome to AWS Storage Day 2022

We’re on the fourth 12 months of our annual AWS Storage Day! Do you bear in mind our first Storage Day 2019 and the following Storage Day 2020? I watched Storage Day 2021, which was streamed dwell from downtown Seattle. We proceed to listen to from our clients about how highly effective the Storage Day bulletins and academic classes have been. With this 12 months’s lineup, we intention to share our insights on tips on how to shield your knowledge and put it to work. The free Storage Day 2022 digital occasion is going on now on the AWS Twitch channel. Tune in to listen to from consultants about new bulletins, management insights, and academic content material associated to the broad portfolio of AWS Storage providers.

Our clients want to cut back and optimize storage prices, whereas constructing the cloud storage abilities they want for themselves and for his or her organizations. Moreover, our clients wish to shield their knowledge for resiliency and put their knowledge to work. On this weblog put up, you can find our insights and bulletins that tackle all these wants and extra.

Let’s get into it…

Defend Your Knowledge
Knowledge safety has develop into an operational mannequin to ship the resiliency of functions and the info they depend on. Organizations use the Nationwide Institute of Requirements and Know-how (NIST) cybersecurity framework and its Establish->Defend->Detect->Reply->Get well course of to method knowledge safety total. It’s obligatory to contemplate knowledge resiliency and restoration upfront within the Establish and Defend features, so there’s a plan in place for the later Reply and Get well features.

AWS is making knowledge resiliency, together with malware-type restoration, desk stakes for our clients. A lot of our clients use Amazon Elastic Block Retailer (Amazon EBS) for mission-critical functions. In case you already use Amazon EBS and also you commonly again up EBS volumes utilizing EBS multi-volume snapshots, I’ve an announcement that you can find very thrilling.

Amazon EBS
Amazon EBS scales quick for probably the most demanding, high-performance workloads, and this is the reason our clients belief Amazon EBS for important functions equivalent to SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft. At the moment, Amazon EBS lets you again up volumes at any time utilizing EBS Snapshots. Snapshots retain the info from all accomplished I/O operations, permitting you to revive the amount to its actual state for the time being earlier than backup.

A lot of our clients use snapshots of their backup and catastrophe restoration plans. A typical use case for snapshots is to create a backup of a important workload equivalent to a big database or file system. You possibly can select to create snapshots of every EBS quantity individually or select to create multi-volume snapshots of the EBS volumes connected to a single Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) occasion. Our clients love the simplicity and peace of thoughts that comes with commonly backing up EBS volumes connected to a single EC2 occasion utilizing EBS multi-volume snapshots, and immediately we’re asserting a brand new function—crash constant snapshots for a subset of EBS volumes.

Beforehand, whenever you wished to create multi-volume snapshots of EBS volumes connected to a single Amazon EC2 occasion, should you solely wished to incorporate some—however not all—connected EBS volumes, you needed to make a number of API calls to maintain solely the snapshots you wished. Now, you possibly can select specific volumes you wish to exclude within the create-snapshots course of utilizing a single API name or through the use of the Amazon EC2 console, leading to significant value financial savings. Crash constant snapshots for a subset of EBS volumes can also be supported by Amazon Knowledge Lifecycle Supervisor insurance policies to automate the lifecycle of your multi-volume snapshots.

This function is now accessible to you at no extra value. To study extra, please go to the EBS Snapshots consumer information.

This new service lets you make dispersed knowledge units accessible to file-based functions on AWS with a unified view and at excessive speeds with sub-millisecond latencies and as much as a whole bunch of GB/s of throughput. Amazon File Cache is designed to allow all kinds of cloud bursting workloads and hybrid workflows, starting from media rendering and transcoding, to digital design automation (EDA), to huge knowledge analytics.

Amazon File Cache shall be usually accessible later this 12 months. In case you are considering studying extra about this service, please join extra data.

AWS Switch Household
Throughout Storage Day 2020, we introduced that clients may deploy AWS Switch Household server endpoints in Amazon Digital Personal Clouds (Amazon VPCs). AWS Switch Household helps our clients simply handle and share knowledge with easy, safe, and scalable file transfers. With Switch Household, you possibly can seamlessly migrate, automate, and monitor your file switch workflows into and out of Amazon S3 and Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) utilizing the SFTP, FTPS, and FTP protocols. Exchanged knowledge is natively accessible in AWS for processing, evaluation, and machine studying, in addition to for integrations with enterprise functions working on AWS.

On July twenty sixth of this 12 months, Switch Household launched help for the Applicability Assertion 2 (AS2) protocol. Clients throughout verticals equivalent to healthcare and life sciences, retail, monetary providers, and insurance coverage that depend on AS2 for exchanging business-critical knowledge can now use AWS Switch Household’s extremely accessible, scalable, and globally accessible AS2 endpoints to extra cost-effectively and securely change transactional knowledge with their buying and selling companions.

Companions on this program meet a excessive bar, with deep technical information, expertise, and confirmed success in delivering Switch Household options to our clients.

5 New AWS Storage Studying Badges
Earlier I talked about how our clients want to add the cloud storage abilities they want for themselves and for his or her organizations. At the moment, storage directors and practitioners don’t have a simple means of externally demonstrating their AWS storage information and abilities. Organizations looking for expert expertise additionally lack a simple means of validating these abilities for potential workers.

In February 2022, we introduced digital badges aligned to Studying Plans for Block Storage and Object Storage on AWS Ability Builder. Right this moment, we’re asserting five extra storage studying badges. Three of those digital badges align to the Ability Builder Studying Plans in English for File, Knowledge Safety & Catastrophe Restoration (DPDR), and Knowledge Migration. Two of those badges—Core and Technologist—are tiered badges which are awarded to people who earn a sequence of Studying Plan-related badges within the following development:

Image showing badge progression. To get the Storage Core badge users must first get Block, File, and Object badges. To get the Storage Technologist Badge users must first get the Core, Data Protection & Disaster Recovery, and Data Migration badges.
