I have a linux dedicated server that has 300GB of uploaded files that I need to transfer to AWS Storage S3 since I am now changing the uploads to be saved in S3 bucket instead of local disk. I read that I can do the transfer using aws cli command to copy the directory over to the S3 bucket. My questions are:
- When I do the
cpcommand from aws cli, how long roughly can it take for a dedicated server to transfer 300GB of data over to S3 bucket? Both S3 and the server are in the same region.
These are my server specs:
RAID Policy Raid 1 Operating System Cloud Linux HDD Bay 1 480GB SSD HDD Bay 2 480GB SSD Network Bandwidth 10TB CPU 6 Core E5-2620v2 - 2.00Ghz x2 RAM 64 GB
I completely understand there are many variables, but want to get an idea on rough estimation from people who have migrated data from linux server to S3 storage.
When I use the aws cli
cpcommand, does it show the progress during that time? What happens if I get disconnected from SSH when the command is still running?
Is it safer for me to run the aws cli
During the transfer, will the server performance take a hit? This server has couple of websites running so do I need to take the site offline when during the data transfer or can I safely run the transfer even when the sites are live?
