AWS April 2016 Webinar Series – S3 Best Practices – A Decade of Field Experience

Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) has been providing developers and IT teams with secure, durable, highly-scalable cloud storage for 10 years.

This webinar will share our insights about what we’ve seen in the past ten years of live customer environments, including backup, restore, archive, and compliance best practices as implemented by some of our largest data stores in the cloud. We will also do a quick review of the 6 different ways to transfer data into and out of AWS cloud storage, discuss how you can accelerate data transfers into and out of S3 over long distances and slow networks, and share some new developments with the AWS Import/Export Snowball appliance.

Learning Objectives:
• Best practices to keep data safe and cost effective (SIA, Versioning, Cross-region Replication, lifecycle policies)
• Quick overview on transfer services (Direct Connect, Snowball, Firehose, 3rd party partnerships, Storage Gateway)
• Deep dive on new ways to accelerate data transfers over long distances and slow networks
