So far in this article series, I have shown you how to create an AWS storage gateway virtual machine and how to provision that VM with extra storage. As of right now however, the VM doesn’t really do anything. In this article, I will continue the discussion by showing you how to complete a few final configuration tasks. I will also be showing you how to activate the gateway so that you can begin using it.
In this, Part 5 (which is the final installment), we’re going to wrap up by talking a little about managing services that enable users to perform various tasks in the cloud, and finally we’ll take a look at how to best manage your users’ data that is stored in many different locations.
In this, Part 4 of this series, we’ll move on to another set of cats that must be herded by cloud admins: servers and client computers or devices – the physical hardware with which the users interface to access the software we have already discussed, along with smart phones, tablets and laptops that are used to access cloud resources from non-fixed locations, and their operating systems.
In this, Part 3, we’ll move on to the subject of the access controls that can be placed on individual users or groups to ensure that each has access only to those cloud resources needed to do his/her job and only the level of access that’s necessary.
