Amazon S3 Storage Engine

Amazon S3 Logo


The Amazon S3 Storage Engine allows developers to store large amounts of unstructured data using the Amazon Web Services S3 service.


To use the Amazon S3 Storage engine, you must have a Amazon Web Services account. You will need to create a programmatic IAM user and provide the access key and secret key to the DBSnapper Cloud Storage Profile page. You will also need to provide the AWS region that you're using for your S3 storage.

Create a bucket in your Amazon S3 account and note the bucket name. You can specify an optional bucket prefix that you can use to organize your snapshots.
