Storage Learning Plan: Data Migration – AWS Free Course

Storage Learning Plan: Data Migration 

Duration: 9h 10m

This Learning Plan is designed to help Storage Engineers, Storage Administrators, Developers, and Solutions Architects create, manage, and architect highly available storage solutions. The digital training included in this Learning Plan will expose you to data migration services in AWS.

AWS DataSync makes it simple and fast to move large amounts of data online between on-premises storage and Amazon S3, Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS), or Amazon FSx for Windows File Server.

In this self-paced course, you learn how to get started with AWS DataSync. You discover its benefits, data transfer use cases, and explore how it works. You learn how to use AWS DataSync to transfer your data between your on-premises storage and AWS Cloud storage services, and between AWS Cloud storage services in the AWS Cloud. Video demonstrations walk you through deploying the DataSync agent, connecting an EC2 based NFS server and transferring data to Amazon S3 as an example to help you get started using the service.
