This will make it easier for me.🤗
With this update you can create a mount point and mount AWS S3 bucket (or a path within a bucket) at the mount point, and then access the bucket using shell commands (ls, cat, dd, find, and so forth), library functions (open, close, read, write, creat, opendir, and so forth) or equivalent commands and functions as supported in the tools and languages that you already use.
Before many AWS users use the S3 APIs and the AWS SDKs to build applications that can list, access, and process the contents of an S3 bucket and now you can more 🥳
Some information about this update:
Pricing – you pay only for the underlying S3 operations.
Performance – Mountpoint is able to take advantage of the elastic throughput offered by S3, including data transfer at up to 100 Gb/second between each EC2 instance and S3.
Credentials – Mountpoint accesses your S3 buckets using the AWS credentials that are in effect when you mount the bucket.
Storage Classes – You can use Mountpoint to access S3 objects in all storage classes except S3 Glacier Flexible Retrieval, S3 Glacier Deep Archive, S3 Intelligent-Tiering Archive Access Tier, and S3 Intelligent-Tiering Deep Archive Access Tier.
Open Source – Mountpoint is open source and has a public roadmap. Your contributions are welcome; be sure to read our Contributing Guidelines and our Code of Conduct first.
