Subscribe to and access a product containing Amazon S3 data access (Preview)

Overview for subscribers

AWS Data Exchange for Amazon S3 allows data subscribers to access third-party data files directly from data providers' Amazon S3 buckets.

As a data subscriber, after you are entitled to an AWS Data Exchange for Amazon S3 data set, you can start your data analysis with AWS services such as Amazon Athena, SageMaker Feature Store, or Amazon EMR directly using the provider's data in their Amazon S3 buckets.

Consider the following:

  • Providers have the option to enable Requester Pays, an Amazon S3 feature, on the Amazon S3 bucket hosting the data offered. If enabled, subscribers pay to read, use, transfer, export, or copy data into their Amazon S3 buckets. For more information, see Using Requester Pays buckets for storage transfers and usage.

  • When you subscribe to an AWS Data Exchange for Amazon S3 data product, AWS Data Exchange automatically provisions an Amazon S3 access point and updates its resource policies to grant you read-only access. Amazon S3 access points is a feature of Amazon S3 that simplifies data sharing to an Amazon S3 bucket. For more information, see Managing data access with Amazon S3 access points in the Amazon Simple Storage Service User Guide.

  • Before you use the Amazon S3 access point Amazon Resource Name (ARN) or alias to access the shared data, you must update your IAM permissions. You can verify that the current role and its associated policy allows GetObject and ListBucket calls to the provider’s Amazon S3 bucket and the Amazon S3 access point provided by AWS Data Exchange.
