About the Enterprise Vault S3 API migrator

The Enterprise Vault Simple Storage Service (S3) API storage migrator lets you migrate archived data to and retrieve it from any S3-compliant storage solution. You can use the S3 API to connect to cloud storages and hosting providers and use them as secondary storage to store infrequently accessed data.

The Enterprise Vault S3 API storage migrator is installed as part of the Enterprise Vault 11.0.1 Cumulative Hotfix 4 or later installation. It moves CAB files, created by the Enterprise Vault file collection software, to S3-compatible storage.

This guide shows how to configure the Enterprise Vault S3 API storage migrator to migrate data to the S3-compatible storage.


Using S3-compliant cloud storage as a secondary storage can make some Enterprise Vault operations, such as retrieval, take a long time to process.
