Amazon Storage Gateway increases Tape Gateway throughput performance by up to 2x for backing up data to and restoring data from the cloud, helping you to meet application backup and recovery times of your business. With this launch, your on-premises Tape Gateway can backup data to the cloud up to 2x faster than before, up to 5.2 Gbps, and read data from the cloud up to 2x faster than before, up to 8 Gbps. This enhancement enables you to upload more data per gateway to the cloud in your backup window, accelerate restore times of your data stored in the cloud, and optimize on-premises storage used by the gateway.
Tape Gateway supports all leading backup applications and enables you to replace physical tapes on premises with virtual tapes in the Amazon Web Services China Regions without changing existing workflows. Tape Gateway caches data on premises for low-latency access, compresses and secures data in transit to the Amazon Web Services China Regions, and transitions virtual tapes from Amazon S3 Standard to Amazon S3 Glacier Flexible Retrieval or Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive to help you minimize storage costs.
This performance enhancement is available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD, on new gateways starting today, and will be made available on existing gateways through a software update starting October 13, 2022. This new performance enhancement is available at no additional cost. For best practices on achieving higher throughput performance, visit the Amazon Storage Gateway User Guide. To get started, visit the Amazon Storage Gateway console.
