Getting Started

The Getting Started section provides step-by-step instructions to set up and create an AWS Import/Export job.

Before You Use AWS Import/Export

AWS Import/Export supports data upload and download from Amazon S3 buckets, and data upload to Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) snapshots and Amazon Glacier vaults. The AWS Import/Export Getting Started steps assume you already use Amazon S3, Amazon EBS, or Amazon Glacier.

To upload or download data from Amazon S3, you need to have an existing Amazon S3 account and be familiar with Amazon S3. For more information, see the Amazon S3 Getting Started Guide.

To upload data to an Amazon EBS snapshot for Amazon EC2, you need to have an existing Amazon EC2 instance to associate with the data, and an Amazon S3 bucket to store AWS Import/Export log files. For more information about Amazon EC2 and Amazon EBS, see Amazon Elastic Block Store.

To upload data to an Amazon Glacier vault, you need to have an Amazon Glacier vault to associate with the data, and an Amazon S3 bucket to store AWS Import/Export log files. For more information about Amazon Glacier, see Amazon Glacier.
