Discovering your storage with Amazon DataSync Discovery

Amazon DataSync Discovery helps you accelerate your migration to Amazon. With DataSync Discovery, you can do the following:

  • Understand how your on-premises storage is used – DataSync Discovery provides detailed reporting about your storage system resources, including utilization, capacity, and configuration information.

  • Get recommendations about migrating your data to Amazon – DataSync Discovery can suggest Amazon storage services (such as Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP, Amazon EFS, and Amazon FSx for Windows File Server) for your data. Recommendations include a cost estimate and help you understand how to configure a suggested storage service. When you're ready, you can then use DataSync to migrate your data to Amazon.
