Where can I transfer my data with AWS DataSync? - AWS DataSync

On December 7, 2023, we discontinued 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 or delete them if they aren't in use. If you need more help, contact AWS Support.

Supported transfers in the same AWS Region

There are no restrictions when transferring data within the same AWS Region (including a Region disabled by default). For more information, see AWS Regions supported by DataSync.

Supported transfers across AWS Regions

You can transfer data between AWS Regions supported by DataSync except in the following situations:

  • With AWS GovCloud (US) Regions, you can only transfer between AWS GovCloud (US-East) and AWS GovCloud (US-West).

  • You can't transfer between Regions if one or both of the Regions is an opt-in Region. This limitation still applies even if you enable the opt-in Regions involved in the transfer.

When you transfer data between AWS services in different AWS Regions, one of the two locations must be in the Region where you're using DataSync.

Important

You pay for data transferred between AWS Regions. This transfer is billed as data transfer OUT from the source to destination Region. For more information, see Data transfer pricing.
