OBJECTIVE OF WORKSHOP
The prospect of ingesting or moving data to the cloud can seem daunting, so can trying to make sense of the array of tools, protocols, and mechanisms available to ingest or transfer data into AWS, whether your building a data lake, migrating application data or simply archiving data. In this workshop we will look at simple & repeatable design patterns you can use to simplify your data ingest and migration journey into AWS. You will get hands-on experience in deploying, configuring and transferring data using some of the available AWS online & hybrid data transfer services.
In this lab we cover different scenarios such as:
Ingesting streaming data to Amazon S3: You will ingest streaming app data into an Amazon S3 bucket using Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose
Ingesting unstructured file data into Amazon S3 using traditional file shares: You will ingest 10,000 files into an S3 bucket,using different methods such as a S3 copy script, S3 File Gateway, and also AWS DataSync and see the difference between each approach from a performance perspective. You will also see how S3 File Gateway and AWS DataSync can also preserve file metadata for the file data they transfer to an S3 bucket.
Ingesting data using the SFTP protocol into Amazon S3: You will deploy and use AWS Transfer for SFTP to ingest and access data in an S3 bucket using the SFTP protocol. You will also learn how you can seamlessly access and share data stored in your S3 bucket using file shares, through the S3 File Gateway.
The outcome of this workshop is to help you visualize the benefits that each of the AWS service can provide to simplify and accelerate your data ingest and data transfer journey.
The image below illustrates at a high level, the 4 different AWS Services that you will use to get the workshop data, using different protocols and data sources, into a common Amazon S3 bucket, in a simple, repeatable and efficient manner.
AWS Account – You will need an AWS account to log into to run this workshop, which has access to create AWS IAM roles, Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon S3 buckets, AWS DataSync, AWS Storage Gateway, AWS Transfer for SFTP and CloudFormation stacks in the AWS regions you select.
Browser – It is recommended that you use the latest version of Chrome or Firefox for this workshop.
Remote Desktop Client - You will need a RDP client to logon to the Windows EC2 instance (Windows RDP)
