Changes Adding KVM as a support hypervisor
Changes The new DescribeAvailabilityMonitorTest API provides the results of the most recent High Availability monitoring test. The new StartAvailabilityMonitorTest API verifies the storage gateway is configured for High Availability monitoring. The new ActiveDirectoryStatus response element has been added to the DescribeSMBSettings and JoinDomain APIs to indicate the status of the gateway after the most recent JoinDomain operation. The new TimeoutInSeconds parameter of the JoinDomain API allows for the configuration of the timeout in which the JoinDomain operation must complete.
Changes The CloudWatchLogGroupARN parameter of the UpdateGatewayInformation API allows for configuring the gateway to use a CloudWatch log-group where Storage Gateway health events will be logged.
Changes CreateSnapshotFromVolumeRecoveryPoint API supports new parameter: Tags (to be attached to the created resource)
Changes AWS Storage Gateway now supports AWS PrivateLink, enabling you to administer and use gateways without needing to use public IP addresses or a NAT/Internet Gateway, while avoiding traffic from going over the internet.
Changes Introduce AssignTapePool operation to allow customers to migrate tapes between pools.
Changes Add Tags parameter to CreateSnapshot and UpdateSnapshotSchedule APIs, used for creating tags on create for one off snapshots and scheduled snapshots.
Changes Add optional field AdminUserList to CreateSMBFileShare and UpdateSMBFileShare APIs.
Changes AWS Storage Gateway now supports Access Control Lists (ACLs) on File Gateway SMB shares, enabling you to apply fine grained access controls for Active Directory users and groups.
Changes This change allows you to select either a weekly or monthly maintenance window for your volume or tape gateway. It also allows you to tag your tape and volume resources on creation by adding a Tag value on calls to the respective api endpoints.
Changes This change allows you to select a pool for archiving virtual tapes. Pools are associated with S3 storage classes. You can now choose to archive virtual tapes in either S3 Glacier or S3 Glacier Deep Archive storage class. CreateTapes API now takes a new PoolId parameter which can either be GLACIER or DEEP_ARCHIVE. Tapes created with this parameter will be archived in the corresponding storage class.
Changes ActivateGateway, CreateNFSFileShare and CreateSMBFileShare APIs support a new parameter: Tags (to be attached to the created resource). Output for DescribeNFSFileShare, DescribeSMBFileShare and DescribeGatewayInformation APIs now also list the Tags associated with the resource. Minimum length of a KMSKey is now 7 characters.
Changes JoinDomain API supports two more parameters: organizational unit(OU) and domain controllers. Two new APIs are introduced: DetachVolume and AttachVolume.
Changes API list-local-disks returns a list of the gateway's local disks. This release adds a field DiskAttributeList to these disks.
Changes AWS Storage Gateway now enables you to specify folders and subfolders when you update your file gateway's view of your S3 objects using the Refresh Cache API.
Changes AWS Storage Gateway now enables you to create stored volumes with AWS KMS support.
Changes AWS Storage Gateway now enables you to use Server Message Block (SMB) protocol to store and access objects in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3).
Changes AWS Storage Gateway now enables you to create cached volumes and tapes with AWS KMS support.
Changes AWS Storage Gateway (File) support for two new file share attributes are added. 1. Users can specify the S3 Canned ACL to use for new objects created in the file share. 2. Users can create file shares for requester-pays buckets.
Changes AWS Storage Gateway now enables you to get notification when all your files written to your NFS file share have been uploaded to Amazon S3. Storage Gateway also enables guessing of the MIME type for uploaded objects based on file extensions.
Changes Add optional field ForceDelete to DeleteFileShare api.
Changes Two Storage Gateway data types, Tape and TapeArchive, each have a new response element, TapeUsedInBytes. This element helps you manage your virtual tapes. By using TapeUsedInBytes, you can see the amount of data written to each virtual tape.
Changes File gateway mode in AWS Storage gateway provides access to objects in S3 as files on a Network File System (NFS) mount point. Once a file share is created, any changes made externally to the S3 bucket will not be reflected by the gateway. Using the cache refresh feature in this update, the customer can trigger an on-demand scan of the keys in their S3 bucket and refresh the file namespace cached on the gateway. It takes as an input the fileShare ARN and refreshes the cache for only that file share. Additionally there is new functionality on file gateway that allows you configure what squash options they would like on their file share, this allows a customer to configure their gateway to not squash root permissions. This can be done by setting options in NfsOptions for CreateNfsFileShare and UpdateNfsFileShare APIs.
Changes File gateway mode in AWS Storage gateway provides access to objects in S3 as files on a Network File System (NFS) mount point. This is done by creating Nfs file shares using existing APIs CreateNfsFileShare. Using the feature in this update, the customer can restrict the clients that have read/write access to the gateway by specifying the list of clients as a list of IP addresses or CIDR blocks. This list can be specified using the API CreateNfsFileShare while creating new file shares, or UpdateNfsFileShare while update existing file shares. To find out the list of clients that have access, the existing API DescribeNfsFileShare will now output the list of clients that have access.
Changes File gateway is a new mode in the AWS Storage Gateway that support a file interface into S3, alongside the current block-based volume and VTL storage. File gateway combines a service and virtual software appliance, enabling you to store and retrieve objects in Amazon S3 using industry standard file protocols such as NFS. The software appliance, or gateway, is deployed into your on-premises environment as a virtual machine (VM) running on VMware ESXi. The gateway provides access to objects in S3 as files on a Network File System (NFS) mount point.
