Implementation for accessing StorageGateway AWS Storage Gateway Service

AWS Storage Gateway is the service that connects an on-premises software appliance with cloud-based storage to provide seamless and secure integration between an organization's on-premises IT environment and AWS's storage infrastructure. The service enables you to securely upload data to the AWS cloud for cost effective backup and rapid disaster recovery.

Use the following links to get started using the AWS Storage Gateway Service API Reference:

AWS Storage Gateway resource IDs are in uppercase. When you use these resource IDs with the Amazon EC2 API, EC2 expects resource IDs in lowercase. You must change your resource ID to lowercase to use it with the EC2 API. For example, in Storage Gateway the ID for a volume might be vol-AA22BB012345DAF670. When you use this ID with the EC2 API, you must change it to vol-aa22bb012345daf670. Otherwise, the EC2 API might not behave as expected.

IDs for Storage Gateway volumes and Amazon EBS snapshots created from gateway volumes are changing to a longer format. Starting in December 2016, all new volumes and snapshots will be created with a 17-character string. Starting in April 2016, you will be able to use these longer IDs so you can test your systems with the new format. For more information, see Longer EC2 and EBS Resource IDs.

For example, a volume Amazon Resource Name (ARN) with the longer volume ID format looks like the following:

arn:aws:storagegateway:us-west-2:111122223333:gateway/sgw-12A3456B/volume/vol-1122AABBCCDDEEFFG.

A snapshot ID with the longer ID format looks like the following: snap-78e226633445566ee.

For more information, see Announcement: Heads-up – Longer AWS Storage Gateway volume and snapshot IDs coming in 2016.

At this point you can reconfigure the disks as cache disks. This operation is only supported in the cached volume,tape and file gateway architectures.

If the cache disk you are resetting contains data that has not been uploaded to Amazon S3 yet, that data can be lost. After you reset cache disks, there will be no configured cache disks left in the gateway, so you must configure at least one new cache disk for your gateway to function properly.

Public Method ResetCache(ResetCacheRequest)

Resets all cache disks that have encountered a error and makes the disks available for reconfiguration as cache storage. If your cache disk encounters a error, the gateway prevents read and write operations on virtual tapes in the gateway. For example, an error can occur when a disk is corrupted or removed from the gateway. When a cache is reset, the gateway loses its cache storage. At this point you can reconfigure the disks as cache disks. This operation is only supported in the cached volume,tape and file gateway architectures.

Public Method ResetCacheAsync(ResetCacheRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the ResetCache operation.

Public Method RetrieveTapeArchive(RetrieveTapeArchiveRequest)

Retrieves an archived virtual tape from the virtual tape shelf (VTS) to a tape gateway. Virtual tapes archived in the VTS are not associated with any gateway. However after a tape is retrieved, it is associated with a gateway, even though it is also listed in the VTS, that is, archive. This operation is only supported in the tape gateway architecture.

Once a tape is successfully retrieved to a gateway, it cannot be retrieved again to another gateway. You must archive the tape again before you can retrieve it to another gateway. This operation is only supported in the tape gateway architecture.

Public Method RetrieveTapeArchiveAsync(RetrieveTapeArchiveRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the RetrieveTapeArchive operation.

Public Method RetrieveTapeRecoveryPoint(RetrieveTapeRecoveryPointRequest)

Retrieves the recovery point for the specified virtual tape. This operation is only supported in the tape gateway architecture.

A recovery point is a point in time view of a virtual tape at which all the data on the tape is consistent. If your gateway crashes, virtual tapes that have recovery points can be recovered to a new gateway.

The virtual tape can be retrieved to only one gateway. The retrieved tape is read-only. The virtual tape can be retrieved to only a tape gateway. There is no charge for retrieving recovery points.

Public Method RetrieveTapeRecoveryPointAsync(RetrieveTapeRecoveryPointRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the RetrieveTapeRecoveryPoint operation.

Public Method SetLocalConsolePassword(SetLocalConsolePasswordRequest)

Sets the password for your VM local console. When you log in to the local console for the first time, you log in to the VM with the default credentials. We recommend that you set a new password. You don't need to know the default password to set a new password.

Public Method SetLocalConsolePasswordAsync(SetLocalConsolePasswordRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the SetLocalConsolePassword operation.

Public Method ShutdownGateway(ShutdownGatewayRequest)

Shuts down a gateway. To specify which gateway to shut down, use the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway in the body of your request.

The operation shuts down the gateway service component running in the gateway's virtual machine (VM) and not the host VM.

If you want to shut down the VM, it is recommended that you first shut down the gateway component in the VM to avoid unpredictable conditions.

After the gateway is shutdown, you cannot call any other API except StartGateway, DescribeGatewayInformation, and ListGateways. For more information, see ActivateGateway. Your applications cannot read from or write to the gateway's storage volumes, and there are no snapshots taken.

When you make a shutdown request, you will get a 200 OK success response immediately. However, it might take some time for the gateway to shut down. You can call the DescribeGatewayInformation API to check the status. For more information, see ActivateGateway.

If do not intend to use the gateway again, you must delete the gateway (using DeleteGateway) to no longer pay software charges associated with the gateway.

Public Method ShutdownGatewayAsync(ShutdownGatewayRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the ShutdownGateway operation.

Public Method StartGateway(StartGatewayRequest)

Starts a gateway that you previously shut down (see ShutdownGateway). After the gateway starts, you can then make other API calls, your applications can read from or write to the gateway's storage volumes and you will be able to take snapshot backups.

When you make a request, you will get a 200 OK success response immediately. However, it might take some time for the gateway to be ready. You should call DescribeGatewayInformation and check the status before making any additional API calls. For more information, see ActivateGateway.

To specify which gateway to start, use the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway in your request.

Public Method StartGatewayAsync(StartGatewayRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the StartGateway operation.

Public Method UpdateBandwidthRateLimit(UpdateBandwidthRateLimitRequest)

Updates the bandwidth rate limits of a gateway. You can update both the upload and download bandwidth rate limit or specify only one of the two. If you don't set a bandwidth rate limit, the existing rate limit remains.

By default, a gateway's bandwidth rate limits are not set. If you don't set any limit, the gateway does not have any limitations on its bandwidth usage and could potentially use the maximum available bandwidth.

To specify which gateway to update, use the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway in your request.

Public Method UpdateBandwidthRateLimitAsync(UpdateBandwidthRateLimitRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the UpdateBandwidthRateLimit operation.

Public Method UpdateChapCredentials(UpdateChapCredentialsRequest)

Updates the Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) credentials for a specified iSCSI target. By default, a gateway does not have CHAP enabled; however, for added security, you might use it.

When you update CHAP credentials, all existing connections on the target are closed and initiators must reconnect with the new credentials.

Public Method UpdateChapCredentialsAsync(UpdateChapCredentialsRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the UpdateChapCredentials operation.

Public Method UpdateGatewayInformation(UpdateGatewayInformationRequest)

Updates a gateway's metadata, which includes the gateway's name and time zone. To specify which gateway to update, use the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway in your request.

For Gateways activated after September 2, 2015, the gateway's ARN contains the gateway ID rather than the gateway name. However, changing the name of the gateway has no effect on the gateway's ARN.

Public Method UpdateGatewayInformationAsync(UpdateGatewayInformationRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the UpdateGatewayInformation operation.

Public Method UpdateGatewaySoftwareNow(UpdateGatewaySoftwareNowRequest)

Updates the gateway virtual machine (VM) software. The request immediately triggers the software update.

When you make this request, you get a 200 OK success response immediately. However, it might take some time for the update to complete. You can call DescribeGatewayInformation to verify the gateway is in the STATE_RUNNING state.

A software update forces a system restart of your gateway. You can minimize the chance of any disruption to your applications by increasing your iSCSI Initiators' timeouts. For more information about increasing iSCSI Initiator timeouts for Windows and Linux, see Customizing Your Windows iSCSI Settings and Customizing Your Linux iSCSI Settings, respectively.

Public Method UpdateGatewaySoftwareNowAsync(UpdateGatewaySoftwareNowRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the UpdateGatewaySoftwareNow operation.

Public Method UpdateMaintenanceStartTime(UpdateMaintenanceStartTimeRequest)

Updates a gateway's weekly maintenance start time information, including day and time of the week. The maintenance time is the time in your gateway's time zone.

Public Method UpdateMaintenanceStartTimeAsync(UpdateMaintenanceStartTimeRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the UpdateMaintenanceStartTime operation.

Public Method UpdateNFSFileShare(UpdateNFSFileShareRequest)

Updates a file share. This operation is only supported in the file gateway architecture.

To leave a file share field unchanged, set the corresponding input field to null.

Updates the following file share setting:

  • Default storage class for your S3 bucket

  • Metadata defaults for your S3 bucket

  • Allowed NFS clients for your file share

  • Squash settings

  • Write status of your file share

To leave a file share field unchanged, set the corresponding input field to null. This operation is only supported in file gateways.

Public Method UpdateNFSFileShareAsync(UpdateNFSFileShareRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the UpdateNFSFileShare operation.

Public Method UpdateSnapshotSchedule(UpdateSnapshotScheduleRequest)

Updates a snapshot schedule configured for a gateway volume. This operation is only supported in the cached volume and stored volume gateway architectures.

The default snapshot schedule for volume is once every 24 hours, starting at the creation time of the volume. You can use this API to change the snapshot schedule configured for the volume.

In the request you must identify the gateway volume whose snapshot schedule you want to update, and the schedule information, including when you want the snapshot to begin on a day and the frequency (in hours) of snapshots.

Public Method UpdateSnapshotScheduleAsync(UpdateSnapshotScheduleRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the UpdateSnapshotSchedule operation.

Public Method UpdateVTLDeviceType(UpdateVTLDeviceTypeRequest)

Updates the type of medium changer in a tape gateway. When you activate a tape gateway, you select a medium changer type for the tape gateway. This operation enables you to select a different type of medium changer after a tape gateway is activated. This operation is only supported in the tape gateway architecture.

Public Method UpdateVTLDeviceTypeAsync(UpdateVTLDeviceTypeRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the UpdateVTLDeviceType operation.
