AWS re:Invent 2022 – Amazon S3 Multi-Region Access Points

Voiced by Amazon Polly


Computing, storage, databases, analytics, networking, mobile, developer tools, management tools, IoT, security, and corporate applications, Amazon Web Services provides a wide range of worldwide cloud-based solutions that are on-demand, instantly accessible, and pay-as-you-go priced. Over 200 AWS services are available, from data warehousing to deployment tools and directories to content delivery. Fast provisioning of new services is possible without incurring a set upfront cost. This gives entrepreneurs, startups, small and medium-sized companies, and public sector clients access to the fundamentals they need to adapt swiftly to changing business requirements.

The fantastic Amazon Re-Invent 2022 event unveiled many new services that would benefit organizations and businesses while enhancing existing ones. In this blog, you will see the features of Amazon S3 multi-region access points.

What is Amazon S3?

The acronym for Amazon S3 is Simple Storage Service. It is an object storage service with performance, security, and scalability that are unmatched in the market. For various use cases, including data lakes, websites, mobile apps, backup and restore, archives, business applications, IoT devices, and big data analytics, customers of all sizes and sectors may use Amazon S3 to store and preserve any quantity of data. To satisfy your unique business, organizational, and regulatory requirements, Amazon S3 offers management options that allow you to optimize, organize, and customize access to your data.

Features of Amazon S3

Various storage classes tailored for various use cases are available with Amazon S3. For instance, you can archive data at the lowest costs in S3 Glacier Instant Retrieval, S3 Glacier Flexible Retrieval, and S3 Glacier Deep Archive, save money by storing infrequently accessed data in S3 Standard-IA or S3 One Zone-IA, and store mission-critical production data in S3 Standard for frequent access. S3 Intelligent-Tiering, which reduces storage costs by dynamically transferring your data across four access tiers as your access patterns vary, allows you to store data with changing or ambiguous access patterns. These four access tiers consist of two opt-in archive access tiers created for asynchronous access to seldom accessed material and two low-latency access tiers intended for frequent and infrequent usage.

Major Use-Cases

  • Construction of a data lake –Users may get insights to optimize the value of their data using an S3 data lake. Applications utilizing big data analytics, high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning are used to achieve this (ML).
  • Data backup and restore that is essential – In the case of a disaster, companies may more easily satisfy Recovery Time Goals (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) thanks to robust replication features. Compliance measures are supported by backup features as well.
  • Archiving data at a low cost – Shifting data archives to certain Amazon S3 service tiers, such as the Glacier storage classes, enables companies to cut costs, streamline processes, and keep data accessible for gaining new insights.
  • Cloud-native apps –The potential to create strong, quick cloud-native mobile and web apps set up to be highly available and scale automatically will appeal particularly to developers.

What is new? (S3 Multi-Region Access Points)

To route Amazon S3 request traffic between AWS Regions, Amazon S3 Multi-Region Access Points offer a worldwide endpoint. Without constructing complicated networking configurations with different endpoints, each global endpoint routes Amazon S3 data request traffic from various sources, including Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs), on-premises data centers over AWS PrivateLink, and the public internet. You may route S3 queries into AWS or across several AWS Regions utilizing a simple network design and setup by establishing an AWS PrivateLink connection to an S3 Multi-Region Access point, all without having to set up a VPC peering connection.

Why S3 Multi-Region Access Points?

  • For applications that must demonstrate the ability to operate across multiple AWS regions for compliance.
  • For increased operational resiliency across multiple AWS Regions.
  • Improved performance to S3 across multiple AWS Regions from the global presence of AWS Global Accelerator Edge locations.
  • Add multiple S3 buckets to a new global Multi-Region Access Point
  • Create a new unique global hostname for data in buckets in multiple Regions
  • Allows applications to operate across multiple AWS Regions without code changes.
  • Designed to accelerate requests across the AWS Global network.
  • Performance-Based Routing of VPC-based or internet-based requests to and from S3
  • Leverages distributed edge locations with a single S3 global hostname to point your applications towards.
  • Simplified experience to easily configure Multi-Region Access Points.
  • Centrally configure Amazon S3 Cross Region Replication Rules for all sources and destination buckets.
  • Replication rule flexibility and precision to replicate some or all data to one or many destinations.


As a result, we may benefit and experience many benefits, such as quicker multi-region applications and complete control over the failovers of the Amazon S3 bucket, efficient managing your global storage footprint, and many more thanks to this new technology S3 multi region access.

1. In which parts of the world is Amazon S3 available?

ANS: – No matter where you are in the globe, you may utilize Amazon S3 because it is available in all AWS Regions. Choose the AWS Region or Regions where you wish to store your Amazon S3 data. Go to the AWS regional services list for a list of AWS Regions where S3 is currently offered.

2. How well can Amazon S3 handle a sudden surge in traffic from my application?

ANS: – From its inception, Amazon S3 has been built to manage traffic for many online applications. Pay-as-you-go pricing and infinite capacity guarantee that your service won’t be interrupted, and your incremental expenses won’t alter. Because of Amazon S3’s huge size, you can distribute the load evenly, protecting any application from traffic surges.

3. How is the data structured in Amazon S3?

ANS: – A straightforward key-based object storage is Amazon S3. A distinct object key is given when storing data so that it may be retrieved later. Every string can serve as a key and be created to resemble hierarchical characteristics. To organize your data across all of your S3 buckets and/or prefixes, you may also utilize S3 Object Tagging.
