By CBR Staff Writer

Amazon Web Services, an company, has released AWS Import/Export for Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), with a new web service interface that enables easy management of data transfers and migrations.

The AWS Import/Export accelerates moving large amounts of data into and out of AWS using portable storage devices for transport. For large data sets, AWS Import/Export is often faster than internet transfer and more cost effective than upgrading network connectivity, the company claims.

The company said that Amazon S3 user can now easily create buckets, upload objects and set access controls, all from a browser and without needing to write any code.

Alyssa Henry, general manager of Amazon S3, said: "Companies have used AWS Import/Export for everything from time-sensitive imports at the end of a datacentre lease, to exporting large data sets to their customers, to disaster recovery. We’re excited to make the service generally available and even easier to use."
