Using the Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance

The Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance is a physical hardware appliance with the Storage Gateway software preinstalled on a validated server configuration. You can manage your hardware appliances from the Hardware appliance overview page on the AWS Storage Gateway console.

The hardware appliance is a high-performance 1U server that you can deploy in your data center, or on-premises inside your corporate firewall. When you buy and activate your hardware appliance, the activation process associates your hardware appliance with your Amazon Web Services account. After activation, your hardware appliance appears in the console as a gateway on the Hardware appliance overview page. You can configure your hardware appliance as a File Gateway, Tape Gateway, or Volume Gateway type. The procedure that you use to deploy and activate these gateway types on a hardware appliance is same as on a virtual platform.

In the sections that follow, you can find instructions about how to order, set up, configure, activate, launch, and use an Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance.
