1. How to use transfer Acceleration in S3?


    To enable Transfer Acceleration on an Amazon S3 bucket using Pulumi, you will need to create an S3 bucket and then configure the bucket to use Transfer Acceleration. Transfer Acceleration is a feature that utilizes Amazon CloudFront's globally distributed edge locations to accelerate uploads to S3. This can be particularly beneficial when transferring large amounts of data over long distances.

    Here's how you can do it using Pulumi with AWS:

    1. Create an S3 Bucket: First, you need to create an S3 bucket if you don't have one already.
    2. Configure Transfer Acceleration: After creating the S3 bucket, you will configure the Transfer Acceleration feature by setting the status property to 'Enabled'.

    Below is a Pulumi program in TypeScript that demonstrates how to perform these steps:

    import * as aws from "@pulumi/aws"; // Create a new S3 bucket const bucket = new aws.s3.Bucket("my-bucket", { // ... (other bucket settings) }); // Enable Transfer Acceleration on the bucket const transferAccelerationConfiguration = new aws.s3.BucketAccelerateConfigurationV2("my-bucket-accelerate", { bucket: bucket.bucket, // Reference to the bucket created above status: "Enabled", // Set the status to 'Enabled' to turn on Transfer Acceleration }); // Export the name of the bucket and the Transfer Acceleration status export const bucketName = bucket.bucket; export const accelerationStatus = transferAccelerationConfiguration.status;

    In this program:

    • We import the AWS package from Pulumi's AWS provider.
    • We create an S3 bucket named my-bucket.
    • We then create a BucketAccelerateConfigurationV2 resource which is specifically used to manage the Transfer Acceleration settings of an S3 bucket.
    • We set the status to "Enabled" which turns on the Transfer Acceleration feature for the bucket.
    • Finally, we export the bucket name and the status of the Transfer Acceleration so that it can be easily retrieved from the Pulumi stack outputs.

    Please note that Transfer Acceleration incurs additional costs, and it's most effective for large files or when your S3 bucket is far from your location. It's recommended to evaluate the performance improvement against the additional cost for your specific use case.

    For more information about the BucketAccelerateConfigurationV2 resource, you can refer to the AWS provider documentation.
