Data Archive in AWS S3

Sudden additional compliance requirements imposed on my client's corporate departments saw an exponential increase in the retention of information and its change history.

I collated data from numerous corporate systems, file stores and databases at several different global locations. This I packaged; checked for integrity; encrypted and shipped to AWS for ingestion into S3 buckets. A solution design for the S3 storage and appropriate security groups specified. This was then deployed by the AWS operations teams. A SLES EC2 instance was spun up so that I could validated the data arriving in AWS before the original storage could be released at the different global offices. Now in S3 the data can be retained, accessed and migrated to Glacier or disposed of as and when appropriate.
