The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Storage Gateway is a new service that’s now available in a beta version, and according to Amazon will give you seamless and secure integration between an organization’s on-premises IT environment and AWS’s storage infrastructure.

The idea is that you’d use the AWS cloud for backup and disaster recovery. Uploading the data is carried out asynchronously to minimise disruption. Once uploaded to AWS, the data is encrypted and stored in the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).

The gateway lets you create snapshots of your local data that can then be used for recovery if problems occur. Companies can also use the AWS Storage Gateway to mirror local data to Amazon EC2 instances if the apps are moved to run in Amazon’s cloud.
