How to Set the Storage Class of an Object You're Uploading to RRS

  • Create a PUT Object request setting the x-amz-storage-class request header to REDUCED_REDUNDANCY.

    You must have the correct permissions on the bucket to perform the PUT operation. The default value for the storage class is STANDARD (for regular Amazon S3 storage).

    The following example sets the storage class of my-image.jpg to RRS.

    PUT /my-image.jpg HTTP/1.1 Host: Date: Wed, 12 Oct 2009 17:50:00 GMT Authorization: AWS AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE:xQE0diMbLRepdf3YB+FIEXAMPLE= Content-Type: image/jpeg Content-Length: 11434 Expect: 100-continue x-amz-storage-class: REDUCED_REDUNDANCY
