Creating a Storage Gateway for AWS: How To Create an Endpoint

Although Amazon would probably prefer that its customers operate exclusively within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, relatively few organizations actually do that. Most still maintain resources on-premises and in competing cloud platforms.

Collectively, these components provide the on-premises workloads with access to AWS cloud storage. As a best practice, it’s a good idea to get started by creating an endpoint.
