AWS DataSync: An overview

AWS DataSync was used for migrating large amounts of data from on-premises to AWS and to transfer data between AWS storage devices. Now a new capability is added in AWS DataSync to migrate the data from either Google Cloud Storage or Microsoft Azure Files to AWS Storage services. This helps to exchange data between AWS and other Public Clouds used by vendors or customers, or partners to store their data. This data migration is done using end-to-end security, including data validation and encryption.
