Email Notifications for Amazon S3 RRS: How to Setup Lost Object Notification and Re-Upload to the Cloud

Before We Begin

Amazon S3 Reduced Redundancy Storage (RRS) is a storage class within Amazon S3 that costs 30% less than Amazon S3 Standard Storage, but with lower durability: 99.99% (RRS) vs 99.999999999% (S3 Standard). That means AWS can lose 1 from 10 000 files during one year.

It’s great to save 30% on storage cost, but no one wants to lose their data, especially if you’re using Amazon S3 RRS as a backup storage. In this post we’ll show how to setup an automatic notification when the object was lost and how to recover it in the cloud using CloudBerry Backup. Continue reading

CloudBerry Backup: Reduced Redundancy Storage Improvements

CloudBerry S3 Backup is a powerful Windows backup and restore program that automate backup and restore processes to Amazon S3 cloud storage.
Ever since we introduced a Reduced Redundancy Storage support in the version 1.5 we realized that it is inconvenient to set up storage class on the account level. It is much more reasonable to configure it on the backup plan level. In the newer release you can decide if you want to use RRS on the plan level and we added an appropriate option to the Compression and Encryption step.

Now, you can have several backup plans with different storage classes. For example, one with standard storage class for the data that under no account you can lose and another one with RRS storage class with the less important data.
Note: In the current version only newly copied data will assume the new storage class. In the future version we are going to add an ability to modify storage class for existing data.
As always we would be happy to hear your feedback and you are welcome to post a comment.
Note: this post applies to CloudBerry Backup 1.6 and later.

How to Create Lost Object Notification With CloudBerry S3 Explorer

As always we are trying to stay on top of the new functionality offered by Amazon S3 to offer the most compelling Amazon S3 and CloudFront client on Windows platform.

Notification of Lost Objects is a new feature that enables users to have notifications sent to an Amazon Simple Notification Service. Amazon S3 is now integrated with Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS). You can configure your bucket to send a notification, via SNS, when an RRS object in that bucket is lost.(Check out here on how to enable RRS using CloudBerry Explorer). Notifications are enabled on a bucket level similar to the server logging and versioning.

Newer release of CloudBerry Explorer allows you to turn on notification of lost objects, retrieve current notification settings for a bucket and disable notification, all using convenient user interface.

The new option can be found in the bucket level context menu.

It opens up a dialog that combines other RRS related options.

Discussion of Amazon Simple Notification Service is outside of the scope of this article and doesn’t fall into the area of CloudBerry Lab expertise. You can learn more about this service here. You can create a Topic using a Command Line Interface Tool for Amazon Simple Notification Service. The description of the tool is available here http://awsdocs.s3.amazonaws.com/SNS/latest/sns-gsg.pdf

As always we would be happy to hear your feedback and you are welcome to post a comment.

Note: this post applies to CloudBerry Explorer 2.2.3 and later.

CloudBerry S3 Explorer: Improved Reduced Redundancy Storage Support

Reduced Redundancy Storage(RRS) enables users to store data in S3 at a 33% discount to our standard pricing in return for a reduced level of durability. Amazon S3 stores objects according to their storage class, which is assigned when an object is written.

Since we added RRS support to CloudBerry Explorer in version 2.1 we got a lot of feedback from our customers who wanted to make it even easier to apply RRS storage class to their files. Newer release of CloudBerry Explorer adds some usability enhancements to RRS support including displaying storage class in the object list, setting storage class one click operation and displaying storage class in the properties screen.

First, you can now see the Storage Class in the object list panel. It doesn’t add up anything to the transfer costs as the storage class is returned by LIST operation. This feature is available in both freeware and PRO versions.

Second, you can now view Storage Class using object properties. Again, this feature is available in both freeware and PRO versions.

And finally, in the PRO version you can easily apply Storage Class to your object (s) by using the context menu.

We hope these enhancements will make it even easier and you keep using CloudBerry Explorer and prefer it over other Amazon S3 clients.

Note: this post applies to CloudBerry Explorer 2.2 and later.
