AWS has since added VPC endpoints for S3 access, you can read about the new feature on the AWS blog: https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/new-vpc-endpoint-for-amazon-s3/ EC2 instances running in private subnets of a VPC can now have controlled access to S3 buckets, objects, and API functions that are in the same region as the VPC. You can use an S3 bucket ...

No. Unfortunately, of all the controls you can place on an S3 user, this is not one of them. The policy you mentioned looks be for Eucalyptus Object Storage Gateway, which shares a lot in common with the AWS APIs but has some other options available.

If you are migrating Windows Server and could log in the VM, using Disk2VHD command would be much easier way. I migrate several EC2 VMs to Azure, and believe you can migrate to a local Hyper-V server as well. https://tombwu.wordpress.com/2015/07/10/migrate-windows-server-from-aws-ec2-to-azure/

Check out File Conveyor. File Conveyor is a daemon written in Python to detect, process and sync files. Basically it will detect file changes, process them as you define, and then sync via defined transports. S3 and CloudFiles are both supported tranports. One caveat. You might have to sync to a physical disk first. You could look at useing a FUSE ...

Yes, the blog post you linked (from 2011) appears to contain obsolete information. From the docs: If the bucket is versioning-enabled (or versioning is suspended), the Expiration action logically deletes the current version by adding a delete maker as the new current version. The NoncurrentVersionExpiration action permanently removes the noncurrent ...

Assuming that you can use a lifecycle policy to delete and/or archive the old versions in a way that works for you, there's no need to give your script delete permissions at all. This approach works great for me in conjunction with the AWS CLI tools. Here's what my bucket policy looks like: { "Version": "2012-10-17", "Id": "IDHERE", ...

S3 mainly offers exceptionally high durability and very low administration overhead. The service itself is not really that cheap (especially when it comes to serving requests), but at most scales the labour cost of managing alternatives blow any savings out of the water. However, at very large scales the savings start to outweigh the management overhead. ...

For a really low-tech approach: use an S3 client that can calculate the size for you. I'm using Panic's Transmit, click on a bucket, do "Get Info" and click the "Calculate"-button. I'm not sure how fast or accurate it is in relation to other methods, but it seems to give back the size I had expected it to be.

Don't want to tell anyone what to do but may I wave a flag for duplicity? or other incremental backup solution. Syncing is all very well, but if you backup nightly, what happens if you don't notice the problem for two days? Answer: Its too late, your local files and your backup are a mirror of each other and neither have the data you need. You really ...
