Examples for configuring live replication

The following examples show how to configure live replication for common use cases.


Live replication refers to Same-Region Replication (SRR) and Cross-Region Replication (CRR). Live replication doesn't replicate any objects that existed in the bucket before you set up replication. To replicate objects that existed before you set up replication, use on-demand replication. To sync buckets and replicate existing objects on demand, see Replicating existing objects.

These examples demonstrate how to create a replication configuration by using the Amazon S3 console, Amazon Command Line Interface (Amazon CLI), and Amazon SDKs (Amazon SDK for Java and Amazon SDK for .NET examples are shown).

For information about installing and configuring the Amazon CLI, see the following topics in the Amazon Command Line Interface User Guide.

For information about the Amazon SDKs, see Amazon SDK for Java and Amazon SDK for .NET.
