Amazon DataSync support for copying data to and from Azure Blob Storage is now available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) region, operated by NWCD. Using DataSync, you can move your object data at scale between Azure Blob Storage and Amazon Web Services Storage such as Amazon S3. Amazon DataSync supports writing to Azure block blobs and can read from all blob types within Azure Blob Storage. It can also be used with Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS) Gen 2.

Amazon DataSync gives customers a purpose-built service to accelerate data transfers. It simplifies and automates copying large amounts of data to and from on-premises storage, edge locations, other cloud providers, and Amazon Web Services Storage. Amazon DataSync integrates with Amazon CloudWatch and Amazon EventBridge for easy monitoring of metrics, logs, and events. It also compresses data before transit, identifies only the objects that have changed and need to be copied, and automatically recovers from network interruptions. In addition to Azure Blob Storage, DataSync supports Azure Files, Network File System (NFS) shares, Server Message Block (SMB) shares, Hadoop Distributed File Systems (HDFS), self-managed object storage, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS), and Amazon FSx file systems.
