Exporting journal data from Amazon QLDB - Amazon Quantum Ledger Database (Amazon QLDB)

Exporting journal data from Amazon QLDB

Amazon QLDB uses an immutable transactional log, known as a journal, for data storage. The journal tracks every change to your committed data and maintains a complete and verifiable history of changes over time.

You can access the contents of the journal in your ledger for various purposes including analytics, auditing, data retention, verification, and exporting to other systems. The following sections describe how to export journal blocks from your ledger into an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket in your AWS account. A journal export job writes your data in Amazon S3 as objects in Amazon Ion format (.ion).

For information about Amazon S3, see the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide or the Amazon Simple Storage Service Console User Guide.
