The Managed AWS Volume Storage Gateway expands the use case for S3 from Object Storage and makes it usable as a storage volume which can be asynchronously backed up as point-in-time snapshots and stored in the cloud as Amazon EBS snapshots. The Volume Storage Gateway presents applications with storage volumes using the iSCSI block protocol. Schedules can be set for snapshots. They can be created via the AWS Management Console or the service API. All snapshot storage is encrypted and compressed to minimize storage charges. This enables S3 to function as a standard, iSCSI storage appliance in support of comprehensive backup and recovery operations

The Managed AWS Virtual Tape Library (VTL) expands the use case for S3 from Object Storage and makes it usable as a s an industry-standard iSCSI-based virtual tape library (VTL), consisting of a virtual media changer and virtual tape drives. The Managed AWS VTL Gateway enables enterprises to use existing backup applications and workflows while writing to a nearly limitless collection of virtual tapes. Each virtual tape is stored in Amazon S3. When immediate or frequent access to data contained on a virtual tape is no longer required, a backup application can move it from the Storage Gateway VTL into an archive tier that sits on top of Amazon Glacier cloud storage, further reducing storage costs.
