Cloud Tiering - Simple Storage Service (S3) has been replaced by Cloud Storage Pools

If you are currently using the Cloud Tiering - Simple Storage Service (S3) feature to tier object data to an S3 bucket, consider migrating your objects to a Cloud Storage Pool instead. While the Cloud Tiering - S3 feature is still supported in StorageGRID 11.2, the new Cloud Storage Pool feature provides a scalable approach that takes advantage of all of the Storage Nodes in your StorageGRID system.

Note: Before migrating object data, contact your NetApp account representative to understand and manage any associated costs.

S3 multipart upload no longer supports x-amz-server-side-encryption on each part

Previously, if you required server-side encryption for a multipart upload, you needed to specify the x-amz-server-side-encryption header for each of the upload parts. This implementation is no longer supported. Starting in StorageGRID 11.2, you must use the x-amz-server-side-encryption request header for the Initiate Multipart Upload operation, which is consistent with the AWS implementation.
