Customers who are retiring storage arrays or moving data-intensive applications to AWS need to plan for the migration of the accompanying datasets which are often in active use. Online file migrations involve writing scripts around tools and then spending many hours to monitor, troubleshoot, optimize, and validate these transfers. In this tech talk, we will dive deep into AWS DataSync, an online data transfer service that makes it easy to rapidly move large datasets into Amazon S3 and Amazon EFS for your applications.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify when to use AWS DataSync for online transfer vs. offline services or other tools
  • Learn how to use DataSync for online migrations of data to and from AWS
  • Understand best practices for data migrations including filtering, VPC endpoint (AWS PrivateLink) support, and data validation using DataSync
