Unboxing AWS DataSync
Your toolbox should contain AWS DataSync, a service to synchronize data between all kinds of locations. Copy data between S3, EFS, and FSx. On top of that, DataSync works with on-premises locations like NFS, SMB, and more.
In this week’s video Andreas unboxes AWS DataSync for you, explains the core concepts, and demos how to copy data between S3 and EFS.
Looking for a new challenge?
Here is the Terraform configuration code, that we used for our example to synchronize data between S3 and EFS. The Terraform configuration creates the following resources:
- S3 bucket
- EFS file system
- DataSync configuration
- EC2 instance allowing you to access the EFS file system
- Security Groups for DataSync and EC2
- IAM roles for Data Sync and EC2
Use the AWS Systems Manager Session Manager to connect with the EC2 instance to mount and inspect the EFS file system.
