Amazon S3

DESCRIPTION:  Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) is the proprietary storage service used on Amazon Web Services.  You will need three things to create a CFP system for Amazon S3:  the Access Key and Secret Access Key you used to create your Amazon EC2 POP, and an S3 bucket.  To create an S3 bucket, go to and log into your account.  Select S3 from the console menu and create a bucket on the following page.

CFP support for Glacier is limited to what is accessible via the S3 adapter.


ACCESS KEY:  Enter the Access Key from the Key Pair created for your Username on Amazon.  The Access Key entered for the S3 bucket should be the same as what you entered into your Amazon EC2 POP.

SECRET KEY:  Enter the Secret Key from the Key Pair created for your Username on Amazon.

Permissions needed for the key are:

    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
            "Sid": "VisualEditor0",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": "s3:ListAllMyBuckets",
            "Resource": "*"
            "Sid": "VisualEditor1",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
            "Resource": [

BUCKET:  Select the bucket you want to use for your data from the dropdown. The dropdown will fill with all buckets created for the user account associated with the Access Key/Secret Key Key Pair above.

Account Mapping Considerations

You can select an S3 bucket as a source in an account mapping job.  Contact your Tervela Sales representative for information on support for permissions, redirects and other of the more advanced mapping features.
