Cloud Tiering supports several S3 storage classes and most regions.

Supported S3 storage classes

When you set up data tiering to AWS, Cloud Tiering automatically uses the Standard storage class for your inactive data. Cloud Tiering can apply a lifecycle rule so the data transitions from the Standard storage class to another storage class after a certain number of days. You can choose from the following storage classes:

  • Standard-Infrequent Access

  • One Zone-IA

  • Intelligent-Tiering (where AWS automatically moves data between two tiers — Frequent Access and Infrequent Access - when access patterns change)

If you do not choose another storage class, then the data remains in the Standard storage class and no rules are applied.

When you configure a Cloud Tiering lifecycle rule, you must not configure any lifecycle rules when setting up the bucket in your AWS account.
