Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) is a distributed, highly available and cost effective storage system that is part of Amazon’s Web Services offering.
NetX can be configured to store and manage files and metadata stored at Amazon S3, providing a simple interface for accessing files from your Digital Asset Management system at any time, from anywhere on the web.
NetX can be configured to utilize your Amazon S3 account to store all your assets. The location and update synchronization is managed with NetX, so files and metadata can be browsed or searched as if they were stored locally. All changes are stored local in a temporary directory, then synchronized with the original file on S3 to preserve version control.
Keep a Remote Copy for Off-site Disaster Recovery
Your Amazon S3 account can also be used to store a backup copy of your asset repository files. This backup can be performed on either a local or an S3 repository. The backup synchronization can be configured to run daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly to maintain a clone of your repository. Additionally, you can configure this synchronization to support only additions and modifications while ignoring deleted files which can maximize resources and provide a remote “trash can” in cases of user error.
Your Data is Safe and Secure
All communication between NetX Core and Amazon S3 is done securely over an encrypted HTTPS connection, to assure files and data are not exposed as they travel between NetX and Amazon.
By integrating NetX with Amazon S3, organizations of any size can realize scalable, reliable, fast, cost-effective data storage for their digital assets.
