Working with Import Jobs
This section summarizes the process you use to import data from your storage device to an Amazon S3 bucket, an Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) snapshot, or an Amazon Glacier vault.
The AWS Import/Export Web Service Tool discussed in Getting Started is the easiest way to create import jobs. It is a command line tool and requires no programming. However, if your application needs a programming interface, you can use the AWS SDK for Java or the REST API to create jobs.
