Working with AWS DataSync agents - AWS DataSync

Beginning December 7, 2023, we will discontinue version 1 DataSync agents. Check the Agents page on the DataSync console to see if you have affected agents. If you do, replace those agents before then to avoid data transfer or storage discovery disruptions. If you need more help, contact AWS Support.

An agent is a virtual machine (VM) appliance that AWS DataSync uses for storage discovery and some data transfers (particularly on-premises storage transfers).
