Cross-region replication on AWS

Posted: April 16, 2017 in Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Cross-region replication on AWS enables automatic, asynchronous copying of objects across buckets in different AWS regions

In this example i have 2 buckets:

on in Frankfurt and other in London,i want yo replicate content of Frankfurt bucket to London one.





Prerequisite for replication is that on source and destination bucket version must be enabled.




Enabling replication

On source bucket (mytestbucket20017 in my case) go to properties-Cross-region replication,specify source region and would you like to replicate whole bucker or just specific folder/subfolder (Prefix) and destination region and bucket




We need to specify storage class and create new role (to associate source bucket with destination one)




But,have in mind that already present objects in source bucket won’t be replicated, only new uploaded one, version info will be replicated also (if any exist)
